Sometimes when I’m on the phone with clients, we start talking about different album companies. Typically, we gush about how gorgeous Queensberry albums are.
Occasionally, on the other end is someone who has never actually seen a Queensberry book. I still gush. They question it. After all, I work for the company – of course I say it’s best?
Here’s the thing, I tend to only want to work for companies I can stand by. While I’ve had a few bumps along that path in my life (I mean really, who wants to work for a bank?), the major players in my past have been companies I will continue to support. Starbucks, Apple, myself, and Queensberry.
So when people tell me I only say Queensberry is awesome because I work for them, I feel like that guy in the hair commercial. “I’m not just an employee, I’m a client.” Ha!
As many of you know, I’m based in the States and Queensberry are in New Zealand. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to go into the office for an interview… But I was a Photojunction user and a Queensberry client. I knew the product because I used it. I wanted to work for the company because I knew they were an incredible team that had worked through ups and downs with me over the previous years. They got up at the crack of dawn to call me when I needed help. They were excited to show me new products and features when we ran into each other at WPPI.
They weren’t my only album supplier, but they were the only one where I knew nearly every team member by name. They were the only one that went above and beyond to not only make sure I was happy, but make sure our brides were happy.
PS…. Who thought I was old enough to remember a commercial from 1986?
It’s OK, Angelique – you’re still a slip of a girl in our eyes. Some of us remember watching the original Star Trek series on a little green plastic TV. – Ed.
