The Photo Finishers celebrates 21 years in business with new products and special savings on photo and video services.

Since Nov. 1, 1996, The Photo Finishers has served the photo and video imaging need of clients in Hot Springs and all over the United States. "From very humble beginnings, the list of basic photographic services has expanded to encompass truly dizzying amount of services performed locally at the Albert Pike location, including film and digital printing from cameras and phones, new and used camera and accessory sales, batteries, film, media cards, frames, albums, Christmas gift and holiday cards," states the press release.

"My goal with this business is, and has always been, to offer the most complete variety of imaging and photography services available anywhere under one roof, and I think we have been very successful with that," states Waco Hill, business owner. "It's really hard for me to think of any photo imaging service -- traditional or digital -- that we have not provided over the years. It seems like we do it all."

Copy and printing services of any size photographs. Custom sized professional poster and enlargement printing is available at the Albert Pike location, as well as full service old photo copy and restoration services. "We have copied originals up to 3 feet-plus, so we really are not limited as some other labs might be by original size or condition. If there is damage to the photos, we can usually make them look better than new."

New technology has created many challenges and opportunities in all areas of the imaging industry, but none more so than in video transfer and editing. "We have been doing film to video and video slide shows since very early on, and we have continued to invest in new technology and training to provide services for all the new digital video file formats, as well as the capability to migrate all the memories we have stored on film and analog media to modern storage devices such as DVD and CD.

"We do lots of video tape transfer to DVD, including old 8mm film, VHS and even Beta. Many people don't know that we also are capable of transferring analog audio tape to CD format. We give huge discounts for those with a large quantity of tapes, so it makes the transfer very affordable and within reach for any budget. The list of all the things we are capable of doing is really a bit mind boggling to me reflecting on where we started. I really don't know of anywhere in the world you can get as many things done under one roof," says Hill.

"To celebrate the anniversary, through the month of November we are offering 21 percent discounts on photo enlargements from digital files 8-by-10 or larger and poster printing and framing up to 24-by-36," Hill says "as well as some extra specials we will have going each week, and some free gifts for our clients. I hope everyone can stop by and celebrate our anniversary with us."

In addition to lab services, they have a full-service family and children's portrait studio where customers can take their portraits home the same day.

For 21 years, The Photo Finishers has been located at 1819 Albert Pike Suite F in Hot Springs. All work is done in house and on site, so one never has to trust their precious mementos to the rigors of shipping.
