Santa Claus Photos At Confederation Court MallOn November 22, 2019 by jmweb
The great folks at the Confederation Court Mall have asked us back once again to host their Santa Claus photos.
This year, we will be utilizing the text messaging application I had built to ensure minimal lines. The concept is simple:
- Walk up to the registration station and register your name/phone number on the iPad.
- A confirmation text message will be sent to you with a link to the document containing all pricing information.
- When you are 4-12th in the virtual line, you will receive a notification on the estimated wait time.
- When you are 3rd inline, you’ll receive a message saying please be within 3-4 minutes of the Santa display.
- When you are 2nd inline, you’ll be asked to come up and check-in with our staff where you will wait till its your turn. After registering and paying in advance, you will be guided up to Santa when it is your turn.
- Once your turn is up and your child is coming down from talking with Santa, it is our intention to be handing you your print. Of course this varies with the packages. Any digital prints will be emailed out within 24-48 hours however it is usually immediate.
Additionally, we will be printing onsite again to ensure prompt service of the pictures being delivered! Prices start at $10! We will be accepting debit, credit and cash.
For dates and times, visit the Confederation Court Mall or for pricing information, please check our order form which will be provided when you visit.
Not sure which option?
Selecting your photo options can be difficult. The goal for the Santa photos is not to just enjoy them today or for the next few years but 10-20 years down the road too. This is where buying a physical print has more benefits.
A digital version is great to post on Facebook or use as a screen saver for now. But as our digital devices change over the next 10 years, the digital versions will become smaller as resolution increases.
In 10 years our monitors, our tablets or phones will have changed significantly. The size of a digital image taken today will appear smaller as our screen resolutions continue to increase. The size of a 8.5″x11″ print won’t. For this reason, a print is always encouraged.
A lot of people get the traditional photo of straight on posed photo however other people prefer candid photos. Most of the photos we take are the straight on posed photos. Some like both. If you have a preference, let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate it.
Can we review the images?
Nope. Our goal is to make this process as quick as possible. Since our time is limited and we want to get as many children in to see Santa, we can not do image reviews. Your photo editor is someone who has been published in major international, national and regional papers. He is a full time professional photographer. He knows what he’s doing.
Can we take our own images?
As long as you are on the lower level and didn’t go up the stairs, sure! If you go up the 2 stairs, that’s a no go.
Whats the difference between low res and high res?
Low resolution images are good for screens. They save them as 72dpi. These are not meant to be printed but viewed on screens. Can you try to print these? Sure. Best of luck. We wouldn’t suggest it tho.
High resolution images are good for printing. Everything printed you see around here is 300dpi. It’s high quality. 240 dots per inch to 300 dots per inch is within high quality printed ranges.
Methods of payment?
Cash and credit cards are accepted. All prices include HST.
