Since 1996, The Photo Finishers, voted Hot Springs' Best Photo and Video Store by the readers of The Sentinel-Record once again, has been serving the photo and video imaging needs of clients in Hot Springs and all over the United States.

"From very humble beginnings, the list of photographic services offered has expanded to encompass a seemingly unlimited amount of photo, video and audio services performed locally at the Albert Pike location including film and digital printing from cameras and phones, batteries, film, media cards, frames, albums, video transfer services, passport photos, portrait and commercial studio photography, photo restorations, old photos copied, private and personal video and audio tributes for memorial and funeral services and much more," a news release said.

"For all of our 25 years, I have worked hard to offer the most complete variety of video, audio, photo imaging and photography services available anywhere under one roof, and I think we have been very successful with that," said Waco Hill, 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, and we are constantly adding services as technology changes. It seems like we do it all."

The Photo Finishers can process and print film in any size or format, color, black and white or slides. It offers digitizing and traditional printing services even from digital camera and phone files.

Copying, digitizing and printing services of any size of old photographs, custom-sized professional poster and enlargement printing are available at the Albert Pike location as well as full-service old photocopy 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 photo's we can restore them and make them look better than new," Hill said.

"We do lots of videotape transfer to DVD as well as old 8 mm 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 videotapes, 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," he said.

"November is our anniversary month so we are offering a month of discounts on select products and services. For example, all our Made in the USA frames will be 25% off through Thanksgiving, we will have discounts on large prints, discounts on most cameras and lenses in stock, early bird discounts on Christmas cards and gifts. Anyone can check our Facebook page for more details and the most current information."

In addition to lab services, it offers a full-service family and children's portrait studio on-site and still has some limited availability for weddings and special events for next year.

For 25 years, The Photo Finishers have been located at 1819 Albert Pike, Suite F, in Hot Springs.

"All work is done in-house and on-site, so you never have to trust your precious mementos to the risk of shipping," the release said.
