2016 MENU OF SERVICES

ORGANIZATIONAL SERVICES

LOOSE PHOTO/ARTWORK/SPECIAL ITEM ORGANIZATION- $50/hour

Boxes of pictures taking up space in your closet? Are they unorganized and every time you look at them you have a panic attack. Not ready to take on a photo book project…yet, but want to be ready? Or, are you just worried about losing valuable memories with only hardcopies of your photos? Let OUTSIDE the BOX sort through photos, organize by year, event, etc; and eliminate duplicates in order to scan and upload.

PHOTO ALBUM ORGANIZATION - $50/hour 

Can’t let go of those photo albums? Have photos been in a pile waiting to be organized in the albums? Let OUTSIDE the BOX sort through photos, eliminate duplicates and add to your albums.

COMPUTER FILE ORGANIZATION – $50/hour

Wouldn’t it be nice to know where your photos are and find them with just a click of your mouse? OUTSIDE the BOX can organize all those photos floating around on your iphone, android, hard drive, cloud, flash drive, etc.

SCANNING – PHOTOS/ARTWORK/SPECIAL ITEMS – $1.50/item or $50/hour facilitation fee

For smaller projects, OUTSIDE the BOX scans photos/artwork/special items.

OUTSIDE the BOX sorts, selects, and pulls photos/items for your project. OUTSIDE the BOX also replaces these items when necessary.

TEXT SELECTION – $50/hour

OUTSIDE the BOX researches and selects text for your project (i.e. quotes, song lyrics). Text inclusion, many times, can help “tell the story” of a project. Clients are welcome to select their own text and provide to OUTSIDE the BOX for inclusion.

Header Page Design – $15/different header page

DESIGN & VISION – varies (see below)

Includes downloading and formatting items to create highest quality for printing (i.e., cropping, removing red eye, & creating hi-res images when necessary), developing a “vision” for your book, and creating a high quality, unique keepsake book based upon this vision utilizing the various options mentioned above. This fee is standard for all photo book projects and is not a “menu item”.
Design & Vision For Projects of 100+ Photos/Items – $1.00/item
Design & Vision For Projects of Less than 100 Photos/Items – $50/hour
Something you don’t see? Please let us know and we will make every attempt to determine feasibility and get your project done! Prices for other photo projects vary dependent upon the project and will be discussed at the time of Initial Consult.
