Congratulations Wendy Wiley!
Wendy Wiley of Queensberry Print Solutions in Pukekohe is the August Awesome Service Award winner.
She was nominated for the great customer service she provided to Heather Child:
"I am an amateur photographer and although I am happy snapping away, digital jargon and all the options can leave me bamboozled. No more so than in the area of file size and what size enlargements can be made of these, it’s so different from fronting up with your negatives and getting prints made.
I have recently applied to enter both the Franklin Arts Festival and the South Waikato Camera Club “Our NZ” photography competitions.
I had a total of 5 digital images that I needed printing and I knew Queensberry in Pukekohe do a fantastic job. My problem was that I had cropped my images to different shapes and sizes and was unsure of what exactly I could ask for in the way of prints.
This is where the awesome service came in.
Wendy Wiley in the Art department loaded up my files on her computer and proceeded to go through them one by one with me. She advised me on the appropriate enlargement for each.
Not only that she was so helpful in recommending the various print paper choices for each image and pointed out a few improvements I could make to my photos that I hadn’t even noticed.
When judges are looking at hundreds of photos the print quality and paper choice becomes important if your image is to stand out.
She could have just pointed out the sizes Queensberry offer and left it at that. Although it was probably only 15 mins of her time it meant so much to me.
I left that business on cloud 9. I can’t wait to pick up the finished products.
So for helping to unravel some of the mysteries of digital photography and the printing thereof to me, I would like to nominate Wendy for an Awesome Service Award."
