Thank You

KnowledgeByte Main Image

As the year end approaches, is there a group or an individual that needs to be recognized? Is there a group of employees or customers that you need to pause and say “Thank You” to for their contribution to your company’s success? Photomation can help. We provide many of our clients with customized Awards and Recognition gifts.

From laser engraved crystal cubes to custom framed pieces, and many ideas in between, we can help you communicate a job well done to your customers or staff. Whether you need just a few or just a few thousand, we can provide you with one-stop service and convenience.

Nothing says “Thank you” better than an Award or Recognition gift. Give us a call. Our staff is ready to help you make the most of your thoughtful giving. Call us for ideas on how to say “Thank You”.

Reversible Framing for Collectibles

KnowledgeByte Main Image

When clients come to us to have a jersey, baseball or hockey stick put into a shadow box we use a reversible framing technique to preserve and protect their collectibles.

On jerseys for example, we use thread and/or small plastic “tags” to attach the garment to a support board to stretch it tight. We do this so we do not damage the jersey in any way. That way, if you wanted to have it reframed years from now, or put on e-Bay to generate a little cash, our stretching process is completely reversible.

For pucks or baseballs, we use a very fine mesh, called toule, to wrap the object. Then we pull the material through the backer board and secure it. This method also allows for a complete reversal if you ever wanted to take that signed puck or baseball out and auction it off for charity.

For hockey sticks we use a thin, clear Mylar strip to wrap over the item and pull the strip through to the back where it is secured. We do not use screws or glue that could damage the original item and reduce its value. We use a similar technique to display programs or books within a shadow box frame.

Not everything needs reversible framing techniques, but when it does, the framing experts at Photomation are here to help you.

Proper Washing of Your Melon

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, St. Jude Hospital, had a need for graphics that explained the steps required for proper washing of fruits and vegetables. Working with their Photomation Account Executive, Ed McIntosh, the hospital staff gave us a hand drawn flow chart for the four different categories of fruits and vegetables used in the hospital’s kitchen.

Our artists created the design that communicated each step in words and in pictures. These layouts were presented to the client and after a few rounds of editing, were prepared for printing. The graphics were printed as photographic images and laminated for ease of cleaning.

The four frames are “flip frames”, frames where the sides flip open to easily change out and update the graphics. These flip frames also make it easier to clean the graphics.

The end result is a very visual tool to aid the staff in properly washing food for consumption to patients and hospital staff alike. Our client was very happy with the result.
