5 Weeks of Giveaways – Week 5

Week 5

Thanks to our friends at Imaging Spectrum, we are giving away the awesome new Brava 21 Photo and Sticker dye-sub printer, valued at $699.

Imagine being able to print photos or photo quality stickers from the same printer. Now you can. Available now from Imaging Spectrum, the Brava 21 utilizes standard and proven dye-sub printer technology that can print on regular dye-sub photo quality paper or print on photo quality sticker media. Some of our key accounts have been asking for just such a printer for over a year now and we finally found a printer that meets our demands for high quality at a reasonable price. Photo stickers have been wildly popular in Japan for several years – now that popularity is starting to catch on in the US market. Visit the photo booth of your local mall or amusement park and you are likely to find photo stickers as an option.

For any photography business, whether event photography, wedding and party photo booths, photo marketing, or senior portraits, the flexibility and creativity of stickers can set your business apart and help you sell more. For example:

  • 2×6 photo booth strips, one strip for guest, one strip to stick to photo album for bride and groom.
  • Create custom shaped photo stickers for parties and events with hand held die cutters.
  • Mix photos, marketing messages and branding with stickers – we’ve had requests for ski helmets, skate boards, back of cell phones, running events, school lockers, bumper stickers; the list goes on.
  • No longer a lab-only product, you can now offer seniors or children photo stickers on the spot.
