Exciting changes roll into place SUBTLE changes have been happening at ASP Gallery since the ownership changeover in January and will continue to roll into place in coming months. One change is the introduction of this e-newsletter, which is designed to keep customers and interested people informed about promotions and special offers, to showcase customers’ favourite photos and give readers a glimpse of what’s happening around the region. All new customers and those
who have made enquiries are automatically subscribed but if you don’t want to receive any more, it is easy to unsubscribe. If you have received a previous newsletter and unsubscribed, but now have another, I apologise. You may have been inadvertently re-subscribed recently in the once-only merging of lists. To unsubscribe, simply reply with “unsubscribe” in the subject box. Don’t be too quick though – we have some exciting things coming up
soon that you and/or your friends won’t want to miss. …….. ANYONE who has had photographs taken by former owner Ashley Smith over the past 10 years is still (mostly) able have them reprinted. While a small number of early photos were destroyed for storage reasons, about 95% are still on file. Copyright to all Ashley’s photos was included in the business sale. I now have sole ownership of the right to reprint or copy them.
