Transition into portrait studio within grasp
Patty Anton, owner of Anton's Hallmark and one-hour photo, is looking forward to turning her shop into a portrait studio.
Once she moves the many cards and other merchandise in her shop which she hopes will occur by the end of this month she'll expand her photography service and her portrait studio. This will include the ability to print photographic quality photos that her customers have shot with digital cameras.
"They'll be able to bring them in on the camera discs, CDs or floppy discs and I'll print the pictures from them," Anton said.
Also, she'll be able to scan photographs for her customers into the computer and put them on disc, or send them by e-mail.
Anton's recent addition to her line of equipment has been the purchase of a digital camera.
During the eight years since Anton opened the one-hour photo business, the demand for the service has remained steady.
"I think people in town appreciate me being here," she said. "It's been a good business."
