New brochure for retailers31 August 2010
This week we issued a new brochure for retailers. If you did not receive this brochure, you can download it here.
The brochure is available in two different print qualities. As usual, retailers who do not offer all Pictorescue services can download the PDF brochure pages that are specific to the services they have on offer. Go to retail.pictorescue.com for a complete overview.
New in the brochure are the "scrapbook" style photo montages, photo montages in the style of old masters of painting and new templates for our fairy tale theme.
On the same page we now also offer examples in high resolution that can be downloaded for display in your store.
Pictorescue, affordable image enhancement services10 January 2010
AMSTERDAM, 10 January 2010
Pictorescue, a brand of 2Step Holding BV from the Netherlands, offers on-line services for image retouching, restoration and creative design to both consumers and professionals.
Pictorescue promises competitve prices, excellent quality and personal attention for each individual customer. “With prices starting below 2 Euros, we make a difference in a market where quite often the lowest price is above 10 Euros. In addition we offer discounts to loyal customers that can add up to 20%”, says Anton Hazewinkel, founder and CEO.
“Before automation started in the photo processing industry, photo labs and photographers developed images manually, giving each photo special attention. Nowadays machines do the processing. Pictorescue combines the benefits of advanced technology with a personalized service focused on the preferences of its customers.”
For consumers, Pictorescue offers 4 types of services, ranging from basic image processing to complex restoration and colorization of old damaged photos. Customers with a regular need to bulk upload photos are given an FTP account. After uploading they can manage their orders online.
Business customers are typically small and medium sized companies who need affordable retouching services. Wedding photographers, real estate photographers and restaurants are among the clients. Special services are provided to archiving institutes. Not only restorations are performed, but also metadata editing and geo-tagging are part of the service portfolio.
Pictorescue is not only a true e-commerce company, selling its services all over the world; its production is executed by professionals in various countries. Julia Zu, Operations Manager: “We have designed a true global platform for image processing, managing complex workflows and guaranteeing data security. It allows us to work with the best editing professionals all over the globe. With editors in Asia, Europe and America, we have in fact created the first affordable non-stop 24/7 service in this market.”
