Mimosa Digital Update

12/23/2009 Update:

Mimosa Digital (119 Washington St.) is one happy Hoboken business. Not only did they move across the street, and now have more room – they also fortunately pay less in rent. A win-win!

Beautiful photo and printing products

Stopped by yesterday to update this entry – and was quite impressed with the quality! I may have to get my next batch of business cards done here, instead of being cheap and doing it online!

In addition to basic printing (such as biz cards, calendars, post cards), Mimosa also employs a high-quality four-color digital printing system – and it shows. Beautiful photographs, large-scale prints, head-shots and fully-bound books can be made as well. They also carry frames, accessories and a myriad of other related items.

You might want to try their self-managed photo printing service as well – which uses the same quality print process. You might pay a little extra, but you’d be happier than going to CVS.

Mimosa also has a fully functional website that allows you to submit your digital prints online – even picking up the same day (if you get them in early enough).

They offer quick turnaround, too – so you still have time to make a unique Christmas gift if you get down there today!

Have any of you used Mimosa Digital? Do you recommend them?

The owner is pretty unbelievable. I find him equally rude to amateurs and people who do know what they’re doing. I had a photo printed (albeit an odd size) but gave exact dimensions. When I placed in the frame, I realized Mimosa had cut it wrong. I went back to ask for it to be reprinted — the owner was completely condescending and said “well, did you measure it correctly?” “Yes. Here are the dimensions I gave you. You didn’t cut it to this size. Can you reprint?” He actually said “Do you know how difficult it is for sizes to be exact? have you tried to cut anything?” To which I replied “Yes. I use a ruler or tape measure.” — he then mumbled to himself and said he’d reprint. Last time I go there. Dude……you’ve gotta learn some customer service. You’re losing business with your attitude.

All this talk about the owner being condescending is a total understatement. He’s a lot like SNL’s “Nick Burns: Your Company’s Computer Guy”.
I’m a professional photographer and have brought my stuff to Mimosa on occasion – mostly last-minute stuff. The turnaround time is great and the quality is decent. Not the best price, but he can charge whatever he wants; he’s the only real lab in Hoboken. Fortunately though, when I’m not pressed for time, the PATH train runs through the Photo District in NYC where all the good labs are.
Not to play devil’s advocate, but I used to manage a high-end photo/print lab used by both professionals and amateurs. The day-to-day business encounters a good deal of “palms to the forehead”; it can be frustrating for the employees. But I would have expected the owner to learn by now that not every customer is going to know exactly what they’re doing. Even if they think they do, there are a lot of variables in prepping files that can lead to botched orders. So yea – lighten up, buddy!

But what about “It’s Greek To Me”? Isn’t that place Greek to you?

I like the Mimosa store front– very cute for a restaurant. And I’m glad to hear that Mimosa is only moving across the street. I get my prints done there.
