Passport Photo Services are an Easy Way to Grow Your Business

Pakor has everything you need to shoot and print passport photos including expert support.

Through Pakor, Imaging Spectrum is able to offer exceptional products and services for passport and ID photo businesses. Better yet, it’s easy to add passport photos to your current business!

Shooting passport photos is a profitable way of adding revenue to your store. Photo costs are under $1 with a projected return of up to $15.

The photo systems are a little more industrial than what has been offered in the past. The biggest change is that the new systems have roll paper feed instead of individual sheets. This gives a faster print speed and you’re only changing photo paper and ribbon after 300 prints. The systems are stand-a-lone and don’t need WIFI to work. 

Important: Even though you will find a lot of information here, we strongly encourage you to reach out to our Passport Expert before you purchase to make sure you get the system that is best for you.
