Questions? Please contact us directly with any questions:
Can I order my package now?
When your gallery is in the Advance Pay mode before your photo day, you can not purchase a package. However, you can purchase an advance payment which is purchasing a credit towards your future order. If you purchase an Advance Payment you will receive FREE SHIPPING to your door step on your future order. Once the photos are uploaded to your gallery you will get a text notification (please opt into the gallery by texting your access code to 90738 to receive this notification) letting you know that your gallery is ready to be viewed and ordered.
Where are the photos?
Our turn around time on league/organization photos is 10 business days and 15 business days during our busy season (April - June and August-September). There are occasional times when our turn around time is much faster than that. Hang tight! After your photo day, we are working our magic behind the scenes and your amazing photos will be ready to be viewed and ordered as soon as we put our finishing touches on the photos. You will receive a text message alerting you when they are ready to be viewed and ordered if you opted into the gallery via text.
Can multiple poses be used for a single package?
YES!!!!! One of the awesome things about our process is pure flexibility. You can select multiple poses within the same package, right from your shopping cart. Here’s how:
Select a photo you wish to purchase and then add a package to your cart.
Then, when viewing the cart, you can select the red Review Photo button next to each item in the cart.
This will bring up the crop window, at the bottom of which is the Change Photo button. Click this button to be taken back to the gallery where you can select another photo or one of your marked favorites.
After you have selected the photo you wish to switch out, it will automatically replace the original photo within the product! You can then continue to swap out images throughout the package, customizing products to your liking with as many poses as there are products. Happy shopping!
What is the difference between an access code and a verification code?
There are two kinds of codes you will come across when it comes to accessing your photos: access codes and verification codes. You might encounter both during your PhotoDay experience, but what exactly is the difference between them?
An access code is essentially the password to your photo gallery. It is set by the Blaze Images and given out exclusively to the school, organization, and parents of the subjects of the photos. To gain access to a gallery, a customer can type in the given access code at galleries.photoday.io…
Or, if on mobile, they can text the access code to 90738, where we will immediately text back with a direct link to the gallery itself. If a customer has the PhotoDay app installed, it will open automatically and direct the customer to their photos. If not, their mobile web browser will open instead.
Verification codes are used to confirm that it’s really you that’s about to log into your PhotoDay account and make purchases. It’s an extra security measure just to make sure you and your financial information are protected. PhotoDay associates your account with your phone number, so when you attempt to view your shopping cart while being logged out, we might prompt you to enter verification code to help identify you.
We’ll send it via text message…
After which you can enter it on the verification code screen. Once you’ve done that, you will be able to view your cart, customize your items, and finally purchase your photos!
How do I text an access code?
One of the main ways you can gain access to your photo gallery is by texting the access code we have given you to our special short code of 90738. Now, if you've never texted a shortcode before, there's nothing to fear! The process is exactly the same as sending a text to a standard phone number, with no additional charges or fees incurred.
