Photo Fundraiser - Lifetouch?

12 years 8 months ago #138675 by Mikkelborg
Has anybody used a national photography company for fall or spring portraits as a fundraiser?
I heard about a school that did this: Lifetouch took portraits in the spring (the photos could also include family members), and sent home a package of photo sheets, each sheet a different size of photos, e.g., one large photo on the page or several smaller) to each student. Each sheet cost $8. The student could buy any of the sheets, or none. The school made $4 per sheet. The teacher I spoke with said the school (about 6 years ago) made a bunch of money.

I believe Lifetouch is a division of JC Penny. Our school uses them each year and they have been great. Make sure you have some re-take dates set ... just in case you have some thinking their pictures could have been better. Good Luck!

We use Lifetouch at our school, as well. They are wonderful to work with. our spring pictures are where we get the money just for the kids having their picture taken. Although, we get $2 per student. Good luck!

Our school used this company last year. The pictures were just as good as the old company. This year they went back to the old company for whatever reason. My niece's elementary school does both the fall and spring with this company and they have very nice backgrounds.

Our school also uses LifeTouch. We haven't used them for a fundraiser, but they take great photos. I love their spring photos. You get to choose different poses, and the backgrounds are scenic. Usually the student is standing or leaning up against something. Fall photos offer retakes, but Spring is a one time only, take what you get. They usually turn out nice, though.

Why not use a private photographer from you own town to help with local business? Plus you'd get a much better quality photo.
