Directories made


free Pictorial Directory Timeline

1. Contact Us – email or call.
2. Book Your EventSpeak with your service representative to decide on dates for your event, sign the agreement and allocate facility space for the photography event.
3. Start Booking Sessions– We’ll send you a link to our online appointment sign-ups to forward on to your congregation so your members may choose the time that works best for them.
4. Meet with Artisan Life Designer – Have a phone design session with an Artisan Life graphic designer about the details of your book (we will design your book prior to arriving at the church). Here we will work with you to decide on the layout, the basic look and feel of your book.  We will also facilitate what you want to include in your directory.
5. Send Directory Components – Send any additional components our designers need to get your directory ready to print. This includes things like activity photos.
6. Promote Your Event – Get the word out! Use promotional materials we provide, such as a slideshow, bulletin inserts, and posters to raise awareness and participation for your event.  Email and phone blast a message from the pastor to your entire church.
7. Get Facilities Ready – Our awesome photography team will need you to clear out facilities allocated for the event so they can set up on location.
8. Photography – Our team will come right to your church to take beautiful custom family portraits of your members.  They will be able to view and order portraits while we are there.
9. Proof Your Directory – Sign off on the final proof, so we can begin printing your directory along with the portraits.
10. Distribute Portraits & Directories – That’s right.  Just 30 days after the last day of photography, you’ll be distributing your pictorial church directory at the same time as your members’ family portraits! (Contingent on timely delivery of information.)  Sign up for your next directory with Artisan Life.
