Seems most of the labs are not doing the colored, textured, foldout cardboard memory mate (where the photo's are inserted). It's seems they're going by way of just a print via template. Our team sports T&I have had the cardboard lay out and was wondering what people are doing what the public response has been. Thanks.

The Memory Mate folder was invented in the mid sixties. Do you want to offer your clients a product that's almost 50 years old, or something a little more contemporary? We made the switch to Composite Memory mates a number of years ago, and have never looked back. No issues whatsoever with parents accepting the new products available from new technology. Just don't call them Digital Memory Mates to parents, they think they're going to get a digital file of some sort. Explain that it's an 8x10 composite print with a team picture, individual picture, and really cool graphics. (We customize each League's Memory Mate with their League logo in the design).

I offer the memory mates and I order all of my stuff through MPix. I design the mates in photoshop order them as a 8x10 and then insert them in a Tyndell cardboard mate for the client.

H&H color lab for the win... Their proprietary eZsports software and ability to design custom templates are the reason I do T&I work. I shoot on Saturday, process and upload to the lab on Sunday and I deliver product to the league by the following Friday.

In my first year, I had a parent insist on a cardboard mm because "that's what I got the last 3 years" Since then, people like the new style MM. I have several styles and never use the same one two years in a row. I want the parents to have something different each year.
