We typically try to print our orders twice a week. Sometimes this just isn’t possible when we are shooting tournaments and are out every evening of the week. Jeff is busy during the day running his construction company (Billings Construction Company) and is responsible for most of the printing process. He also maintains our image archives (which is now over 6.75 terabytes).
We’ve been posting over 60,000 images during the school year, and it’s both a blessing and a curse. We’ve had to separate our image galleries, by school year, into different subdomains, and it is not possible to combine orders from different school years to save on postage/handling. We’re using the handling fees to pay for the space on the server to continue to host these pas archives. Currently our entire websites/galleries take over 37gb of space on the server, this this is a HUGE number in terms of web space.
We will typically maintain the galleries for the past 3 seasons, as we often get orders for seniors and have requests for their images thru their high school years. We will not guarantee to keep images online for longer periods that that.
