School and club pictures make way onto items

Published April 4, 2007



Specialty printing business John's Pass Picture This! has started working with Pinellas County schools on fundraisers. One of the store owners, Michelle Delaney, is also a teacher at Pinellas Park Elementary. She and her husband, Matt, run the new business printing customers' photos on mugs, wall hangings, pens, purses and dozens of other items. Schools are coming to them with classroom photos the couple print on an item for resale as a fundraiser for school projects. The couple, who offer discounts to school employees, started the promotion to gain exposure for their business, which sits alone on the top floor of the new John's Pass garage. They also offer the fundraising technique to private schools, clubs and organizations. Picture This! can be reached on the Web at or 393-2728.
