Beth’s Photography
Beth and Tim Hodges’ photography studio relocated Aug. 8 to 205 E. Kearney St. after eight years at 2119 E. Division St. Beth’s Photography specializes in high-end wedding videography and photography, and offers portraits in the studio and on location. Cost for a typical wedding shoot ranges from $1,200 to $3,200. The couple spent $7,000 moving to the 2,700-square-foot space in a building owned by Dave Williams, Tim Hodges said, declining to disclose lease terms. Hours: 9 a.m.–5 p.m. Monday through Friday and by appointment. Phone: (417) 831-2456. Web:

Digital Print Ink
For more than 30 years, Digital Print Ink has operated in various locations in Shamrock Center. On May 19, print shop owner Steve Counts moved to one of its former spots in the center, 3444 S. Campbell Ave. The business, which offers printing, mailing, promotional products and document design, specializes in small jobs requiring quick turnaround. An order of 25 to 100 custom presentation folders costs $3 to $4 apiece. The move cost roughly $50,000, which Counts said was self-financed. The five-year lease with O’Reilly Investments costs roughly $3,200 per month for rent and maintenance, he said. Counts said he moved to a smaller site, 3,500 square feet from 5,000, to cut expenses and because newer machines require less space. The shop started as a Kwik Copy franchise in 1979 and became Digital Print Ink in 2004, three years before Counts took ownership. Counts employs five full-time and four part-time workers. Hours: 8:30 a.m.–5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Phone: (417) 881-5309. Web:

Gone with the Wind Museum
Novella Perrin, a collector of “Gone with the Wind” memorabilia, opened the museum June 1 at 109 E. Main St. in Branson. The 2,000-square-foot site houses about half of the 10,000 items she has acquired – original costumes, props, autographs and other items based on the 1939 film. Perrin said she’ll rotate one-fourth of the collection quarterly. The museum has one full-time and two part-time employees. Startup costs were roughly $500,000, and she leases the building from Rich Makuch. Admission is $7 to $10, and children younger than 12 are free. Hours: 10 a.m.–6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Phone: (417) 239-3990. Web:
