FDIS labs take the VAT strain

Shops in the Fujifilm Digital Imaging Service (FDIS) group are offering their customers VAT free prints until 25 February.

All participating stores have received a pack of eye-catching point-of-sale material, plus the campaign is being backed up with national advertising, promotion on the Fujifilm website and via Swains, the FDIS distribution partner.

Peter Wigington, Marketing Manager for Fujifilm Photo Imaging Group explained the promotion: The FDIS marketing group are always looking for eye-catching promotions and we thought the hype around the hike in the VAT rate provided an excellent opportunity for our member retailers to help soften the blow for their customers. The promotion is a great way of driving to footfall to stores and gives the retailer an ideal chance to up-sell other services.

He continued: Im delighted to kick off 2011 with this VAT free offer and we have really exciting plans for other major promotions throughout the next twelve months. One of the key benefits of being a FDIS member is being able to utilise the professionally designed marketing material we produce and the Fujifilm brand helps our retailers really stand out on the High Street.
