These 20 Jewelry Stores Know How to Make a Name for Themselves

On track to create over ten million product photos by the end of 2020 for brands like Crate and Barrel, Tailored Brands, J Press, and Kashiyama, Threekit is the largest product photography company by volume in the world.

Much of this growth is driven by increased e-commerce consumption due to COVID-19, as social distancing brings more shoppers online and forces many photography studios to close or reduce hours.

“Retail was heading in this direction, but COVID-19 massively accelerated everything,” says Matt Gorniak, Threekit’s CEO. “Online shopping is changing dramatically, with greater emphasis placed on product visuals to mimic the in-person shopping experience. At Threekit, we get brands there before the competition.”

Even before COVID-19, demand for product imagery was growing. In 2016, the average online shopper expected no more than three images per product. In 2019, the number grew to eight. Meeting this demand is a huge challenge due to cost and complexity.

Traditional product photography can cost $300 per product, and for product categories where items can be configured in many ways, such as furniture, fashion, or manufacturing, the number of photos required to capture a full product line can easily number into the tens of thousands.

With Threekit Virtual Photographer, customers can create unlimited numbers of product photos with different colors, textures, fabrics, and angles at a fraction of the cost and time of traditional photography.

Retirement, Anniversary or Going Out of Business Sale? Let Wilkerson Handle the Details

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
