On-line sales and proofing galleries have major advantages (They're an easy way to create proofs for clients, they can increase on-line sales & probably most importantly can generate a lot of traffic to your site attracting potential new customers and helping with Search Engine Optimisation). We conducted some research into the best companies offering this service and in October 2010 we negotiated a 25% discount on the service offered by www.photomemory.net exclusive to Guild members .. This offer expired at the end of 2010 but Photomemory have now kindly agreed to make this an on-going offer for Guild members.

Photomemory, a well established but very personal company offer the above services and have agreed to give Guild members 25% off any service they purchase on top of their 30 day free trial. This is the equivalent of four free months over the next year meaning the cost averages out at unbelievable £15 per month and with no VAT on top. You can more or less save your Guild membership fee in one go here.
