Welcome, Loxley Colour!
Hellooooo, Europe. Loxley is finally here to serve SmugMug Pros who live across yonder seas. (Well, the Atlantic.)
Before we dig into the details, we just want to say a quick, heartfelt “Thank you!” to all of your European SmugMuggers who have waited so long for this sweet moment. Huzzah for the printer!
What’s so special about Loxley Colour?
Where should we start? Their unmatched reputation is the result of over 50 long years of incredible quality and service. They’re a family-driven company, which we dig. And like SmugMug, they’re completely and wholly focused on bringing the best products to photographers and their clients… no matter what. They know the business, and it’s their mission to continue to make sure that artists thrive doing what they love.
In other words, they rock. And we’re thrilled that they’ve said “Yes!” to becoming part of our family.
What products can I buy (or sell)?
Swing by their corner of our catalog and you’ll see the traditional glossy, lustre and metallic prints in the sizes that your clients already know and love. But you’ll also see some tasty new ways to showcase your images, like:
- Glacier Block. Crystal clear 30mm acrylic block creates a unique prism effect.
- Acrylic Window. Contemporary acrylic mount with 2″ frosted borders and corner standoffs.
- Alumini Print. Offers the most vibrant, luminous and waterproof option for your photos.
- Edge Print. Durable 1″ borders provides a polished, modern look without the need for a frame.
Juicy, right? And there’s more, so see it all in our Loxley catalog.
How do I start selling through Loxley?
Remember that due to the unique SKUs each lab offers, you can’t just switch labs on a Pricelist you’re already using. But it’ll only take a few minutes to set up and apply a new one, you’ll see!
What if I have VAT Exemption number?
Open up your Control Panel and click on the Settings tab, then click to edit your billing info. The last field at the bottom is where you enter that number.
How do I sell to both US and EU markets?
You already are! It’s true. You’ve always been able to sell and ship to anyone, anywhere in the world. And since we added the ability for customers to check out in one of 5 popular currencies, it’s gotten even easier.
Still, if you want to offer different labs to different customers, try setting up separate Pricelists for each lab that you use and apply them to your galleries or photos. You may want to point your US customers to a different gallery than the one from which your European clients buy.
Can I use Loxley if I have a Basic or Power account?
Not yet, but we do plan on including Loxley’s print services to all SmugMug accounts after we’ve confirmed our Pro integration is a smashing success.
Ready? Set? Sell!
We hope that you and your clients love the quality and innovation that Loxley Colour brings to the table. We can’t describe how sweet it is to finally bring you a lab in Europe, and one so highly sought-after, to boot.
As always, tell us how it’s going, how they’re doing and how it’s working for you.
