2014 in Focus: Digitalab’s End of Year Roundup

Christmas is on the way – and here at Digitalab we’re getting sentimental, especially considering all of the great news 2014 has thrown our way. It’s been a big year for our photo printing business, with a host of technological breakthroughs and a calendar full of exciting industry events, so it’s safe to say 2014 has been a year to remember.

Today we’re taking a look back at 2014 and all of the picture perfect moments that have come with it.


The Digitalab Site

This October, Digitalab entered its next phase – launching a spanking new website, including exciting new features and products. In particular, we added our lovely new print boxes and box frames to the site, as well as an exclusive new customer login system – offering our much-loved customer base a greater level of personalisation than ever.

Earlier this year, we had the honour of being the first photo lab to distribute Tony Sarlo’s gorgeous wedding albums. At Digitalab, we appreciate the power of presentation – and it’s been a pleasure to welcome these exquisite albums to our site. By offering Tony Sarlo wedding albums to our customers, we’re giving you a chance to give your high quality prints the high quality presentation they deserve – and it’s this commitment to quality that has helped to establish Digitalab as a dominant force in the industry.

Our Business

Being recognised as a leading local business is very rewarding for us – and recently, Insight Accountancy featured us alongside an array of regional leaders in an exclusive North East business feature. Here, Jill offered some expert insight on the importance of professional printing for SMEs – and we loved being able to have our say on an issue often overlooked in business.

At Digitalab, we believe in providing our valuable customers with the highest possible printing quality – which is why we invested in another HD minilab this year to guarantee superior quality and fast printing times on every order. Our photo printing services are in higher demand than ever – and investments like this are well worth the money if we can deliver our wonderful customers the best possible results every time.

Awards & Events

We love nothing more than an excuse to socialise – and 2014 has been a year of exciting, one-of-a-kind events we’ll remember for a long time. One of our ultimate photo moments has to be holding Tim Wallace’s first ever exhibition – which was a storming success, beating all previous gallery sales. This fantastic exhibition gave us an opportunity to show support for one of our favourite working photographers – and we couldn’t be happier with how it went. This is just one of many brilliant events we’ve attended in 2014, and there’s nothing we love more than an excuse to get amongst the vibrant photographic community.

Perhaps one of our crowning moments of the year came earlier this month, as Jill came runner-up in the North East Women Entrepreneur Awards for Best Use of Technology. It’s so gratifying to be recognised for the work we do in the region – and this is just further motivation to continue to innovate the photographic industry and provide our loyal customer base with better and better services every step of the way.

2014 has definitely been one for the Digitalab scrapbook – and we hope yours has been just as wonderful. Merry Christmas – and we’ll see you on the other side!
