Gain a competitive edge using our unique products and powerful software solutions including our integrated green screen, patented Virtual Groups and ship-to-home that can make you more profit.
Streamline your workflow and boost your sales.
We have built products and software features specifically for school photography. We offer tools for the process that schools and customers want – the ability to view images first before purchasing.
We have sets of products, pricing and software features called “markets.” CCS offers 2 different markets for schools. Below is an overview of each. CCS can also accept orders directly from PhotoLynx™ (see the software page) and our CORE software can accept an import created by PhotoLynx™ (so there is no need to re-enter data).
Full Service (select “SPRT” in CORE)
If you want to book more schools, then using our Ecommerce platform and View-Before-Buy marketing is perfect! School jobs using this method would be submitted using our Sports Market in our CORE software. Units are $2.26 and Ecommerce fees start at 6%-9% based on file sizes (or 2% for pre orders). Plus, make more profit using our ship-to-home services! See our catalog for financial models!

Products & Software Feature Highlights
School Product Line – We offer packages with products that complement each other, and lend themselves to the schools you are photographing.
Virtual Groups™ – Create class groups of any size from individual shots taken on either a green or blue screen (chroma key). Virtual Groups™ remove the chaos of photographing all the kids together. Plus, we offer customized backgrounds with the option to include the year, name of school, student names, and logos.
Fundraising Products – By offering school fundraising solutions to your service mix, you have a greater competitive advantage when it comes to booking schools. We have traditional items such as mugs, mousepads, window clings and mats PLUS larger items like Spirit Sticks and wall klings. Booster clubs will love the variety of products!
