"We received the sample card you sent, and we were very impressed. Just the professional image we wish to portray. We showed it to a few friends and associates, and they liked it also"

"Thank you for the amazing service. You can be sure you will get all our business, and others we will send your way"
K.D. Contractors, Tirau
"Hi, Bevan. I like the business cards very much. They look a lot flasher than the cards other people give me, and people often look at my cards more than once. In my dealings I have never been handed a similar laminated card with a photo in the background. I will certainly continue to use your services"

Security Consultant, Wellington
"Great cards - many thanks"
Robert Lee, Mannatech, Tauranga

Photo Factory makes websites for
all types of businesses, and in all price ranges.
A simple stand-alone website can be yours from $300.
But if your business or organisation needs promotion in
Thames, Paeroa, Waihi, Ngatea, Hauraki, or Coromandel
we have a really great deal for you.

The Vitalise website specialises in promoting
everything that makes up our community.
We can promote your business or organisation
within the Vitalise website,
where everyone goes to find details of events,
special deals and a lot more.
You can use your Vitalise web page externally (as a normal website)
while we concentrate on sending visitors to you
through the community website.

A stand alone website is a lot like putting
your advertising in a paddock,
and hoping that someone drives by.
It involves hosting fees, and can cost
a lot of money to make any changes.

Advertising in the Vitalise paddock means that we can promote you with
news items, promotional deals, and monthly
emails to all Vitalise members.
$5 per week includes hosting.

Below, you can see a web page
built on the Vitalise platform.
A page like this contains the business logo,
photos as required,
full details of the goods or services offered,
email contact form and references.

The cost of setting up a web page like Matthew's
is typically just $300,
with a weekly cost of $5.00
which includes hosting.

Talk with Jono or Bevan about
your Vitalise web page, business cards or both.
Online or at 507 Pollen Street Thames.

As the owner of this business, Matthew uses
business cards with a web address of
to direct people from all over the area he services to his web page,
while we promote his service with
monthly emails to Vitalise members
and with links from multiple pages on the website.,

This treatment ensures that when our enzymes are activated they react to their full potential,
resulting in the highest quality clean for you.

Our services include
Residential carpet cleans
Commercial carpet cleans
Stain treatment
Upholstery cleaning
Leather care
Fabric protection

Upholstery Cleaning
- Our Process

Like cleaning carpets, our process of cleaning

upholstery is just as thorough.
We vacuum and remove pilling from fabrics and then carefully apply an enzyme solution prior to cleaning. 

This ensures a result that is noticeable, refreshing

the life of your treasured rugs and upholstery.

how we can clean your leather upholstery 

and our ‘Fabric Protection’.

"I recently enlisted the help of Matthew White of Contrast Carpet Cleaning and am delighted with the result.
The carpets had been laid about 20 years ago, and subjected to traffic by pets and grandkids but came up like new.
In addition I asked him to clean a well-upholstered lounge suite and it is now back
in the same 'show room' condition as when purchased 25 years ago.
I can confidently recommend his efficient and thorough work."
- Len Abercrombie, Te Puru

"Matthew recently cleaned the upholstery on my lounge suite
that hadn't been cleaned since it was purchased many years ago.
He did a wonderful job and exceeded my expectations.
The cleaning was done during Level 3 and Matthew wore a mask and gloves and maintained social distancing.
He was very professional, efficient and knowledgeable and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend his services".
- Caral Othman

"Matthew arrived promptly and got straight to work.
He was very knowledgeable and managed to completely remove a difficult stain that we'd tried to shift several ways already.
The price was more than fair, our carpets look like new, we can't recommend this service highly enough"
- Jacqui Barrow

The advantages of Vitalise over other advertising media

Everyone gets the choice of free or very low-cost advertising
Listings are free for individuals, businesses, sports clubs, social groups and services.
This means that everyone gets to tell the community about what they do and what they can offer – it’s not restricted to those with an advertising budget.
Low cost advertising is available in the form of complete web pages for $5 per week including hosting.
Whichever advertising you choose, we will do our best to promote you to the community.

it’s 24/7.
Unlike other forms of advertising (radio 30 seconds, newspaper a few days), Vitalise is available to its audience 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

Information stays where we put it on the site so it can always be located – not like putting a notice on a community social media site, where it will quickly be replaced by pictures of cats and dogs. We use those sites too, but Vitalise has one specific mission – to do the best possible job of representing everything in our community, and informing each and every member of this community about everything they need to know to get the best out of what we have here.
This means that someone looking for a special bargain, a coffee, a sports club or help with their health can search for it at 4pm or 2am – it’s there for them at all times.

it will help keep money in our local communities.
We have a huge range of great businesses and services in Thames, and they deserve our support.
Vitalise will allow more people to see exactly what is on offer in our community, and help our businesses thrive.
This includes visitors to our community, who need to find what is available and where it is.

it has people waiting to hear about your offers to the community
Vitalise has a rapidly expanding list of locals who have signed up as members to win prize draws and hear about the offers that businesses and groups make to the local community.
A monthly email to these members will include all Special Deals made by local businesses and groups.
A quick and easy way to get your message to people who want to hear it.

it has free stuff
It has a section where we can offer free goods or services to fellow members of the community, 
whether this is a bag of lemons or a retired person wishing to use their skills to help another person or group.

Listings for garage sales are welcome.

it has a jobs section
This will help businesses needing staff locate the right people, and help job seekers find a position.

it’s new, and available for use right now.
The more listings we all put on the website, the better our community will be represented and the more useful the site will be.

it’s independently funded
Vitalise is built and sponsored by local business Photo Factory, so it’s not burning any ratepayer cash,
and there is no subscription payable to use the website.

For a full webpage like the one you see above,
call in to see us at 507 Pollen Street
and we will build you some advertising
you can be proud of for just $5 per week.

Vitalise is sponsored by Photo Factory, a local business since 2010
