2 # How does Arcadina Labs benefit me?
With Arcadina Labs everything is advantages.
You will be the one to select, with just a “click”, the Arcadina Labs professional printing formats you want for your customers. The recommended price of the formats appears automatically, but you can modify it. Thanks to Arcadina Labs, through your website, you will be the intermediary between your customers and the printing lab and you won’t have to worry about anything else.
From your customer area you can have control of the order placed by the customer and check that everything is progressing properly. In this way, you can get benefits every time a customer places an order on your website, since the order will be received directly in the lab without you having to waste a minute to manage it.
In marketing, these types of services are called “passive income“, i.e. products or services that allow you to earn a certain amount of income each month without having to invest time in them. That is, products or services that allow you to get a series of income each month without having to invest time in them.
3 # How much will Arcadina Labs cost me?
Practically all Arcadina plans (with the exception of the Bronze plan, which does not include an online store or private customer area), you can enjoy this new image printing service from your website, at no additional cost.
“Arcadina Labs is now available on all plans: Silver, Gold or Platinum – absolutely free!”
If you want to know more about the different options of the plans that we offer in Arcadina, we encourage you to go through the following post.

And the best of all is that, besides being a self-managed service for your clients and included in your Arcadina plan, you will finally be able to delegate this type of work (since you won’t have to take care of anything).
You’ll have more time to do other tasks or simply enjoy your free time while your customers buy your photos in the print format they want.
4 # How much money will I earn with Arcadina Labs?
You can set the profit on each order yourself.
If you look at the print formats tab (in your control panel), you will see that each type of format already has a set price. These rates (except for the cost) are fully customizable. Below we explain what each one means.
- Cost: amount that goes to the printing laboratory (shipping costs will be included).
- Price: amount (final) that your customers will pay for that particular service.
- Benefit: money paid directly into your account, which you can set up yourself*.
The prices (cost + profit) that you will currently find in the different printing formats are recommended quantities in accordance with the current market situation.
5 # How much time will I save with Arcadina Labs?
Very much so.
The truth is that you can see for yourself what it can mean for you to promote to your clients the (self) printing service of images in more professional formats.
With Arcadina Labs, these are some of the tasks that you will no longer have to do every day:
- Meet with clients to select photos and choose the print formats they like best.
- Place orders to the laboratory.
- Wait to receive the printed photos and check that everything is correct.
- And last but not least, meeting customers again to deliver their orders.
Can you imagine the amount of things you can do with all this time you will now have available? You can update your website and your blog, finish backlogs or simply relax with your family while your photography website continues to generate income.
It is true that, at the beginning, to configure the entire Arcadina Labs service to your liking, you will have to spend some time, but once you get everything ready, this photo printing service will become a passive income generator for your photography business.
And if you have any doubts during the process, you will always have us on the other side to help you with whatever you need (24 hours).
