Generally, portraits are kept on file for about 12-18 months. Your best option is to order your portraits within one year of picture day. After this time, images are archived and only accessed if needed to produce our Journey Program.
Senior images are kept on file for two years after they are taken and can be ordered at any time during that period.
Yes, you can order additional portraits online. To reorder more portraits:
You can only order additional prints if an order was placed on the original sports picture day. Unfortunately, for Sports picture days, not all athletes are photographed for individual pictures. If you ordered sports pictures on the original picture day and have received your prints, you may reorder more of the prints you received.
Yes, we do accept late orders, but there will be an additional charge of $7 to cover processing and shipping charges. Your package will be shipped directly to the specified shipping address, not to the school. Follow the instructions below to order your package.
Most of our sports programs are prepay only. This means that only students who placed their orders on picture day are photographed individually. If you want to confirm whether your child was photographed or if you would like to order a team picture, please contact our Customer Service at (866) 624-6229 or email@example.com.
Orders that are turned in after picture day are processed and returned to the school or mailed to your home address as soon as possible, once the original orders are complete. If you would like a status on your picture package, please contact our Customer Service at (866) 624-6229 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have placed an order online and are charged a shipping fee, it is because the original order from the school has already been shipped. Any orders placed after the completion of the original orders will be processed separately and mailed to the shipping address provided during online checkout.
Your payment code is the same as your Order or Invoice number. It is a 7 digit number and can be found on either of the receipts emailed to you after you place your online order.
The most common reason a credit card is declined online is due to an address or zip code mismatch where the address entered for the billing information does not match the address the credit card company or bank has on file. The pending transaction means that your account was located, but the transaction could not be completed. The pending transaction will automatically be removed from your account in approximately 3-5 business days. Unfortunately, Strawbridge Studios cannot assist with the removal of the pending charges. If you need assistance, please contact your bank or card company directly.
