Sometimes you just need a great gift fast.
And nothing shows you care like a touching photo.
Travel back in time: Until Memento came along, the only way to get a photobooks & gifts was to do-it-yourself online. That meant a long, unreliable upload process from home, followed by a tedious, unreliable online design work, often ending in frustration. But at least their photos were “right there” in the computer.
Well, when we started the world’s first photobook store eight years ago, we had a big problem: customers did not have their photos with them.
Fast-forward to today, a.k.a. “The Age of Great Phone Cameras.” Customers have great photos with them all the time! Newer mobile phones take terrific photos, and they’re just getting better.
Ok Josh, what the heck does all that have to do with gift-giving?
Having those photos right in your pocket means Memento can make a great photo gift for you in less than an hour. Check out the differences between the old way & the new way:
Old Tedious Steps for Framed Photo:
1. Somehow get your photo printed, which means uploading, ordering, etc, or else getting to the drugstore, and figuring out their kiosk printer
2. Find a place that still sells frames, and buy one
3. Put the photo in the frame, try to keep the dust out, keep the glass from sticking to the emulsion of the photo
New SINGLE STEP for Metal or Chromaluxe Photo Display:
1. Bring or upload the photo to Memento
Not only are “frame alternatives” more convenient, they’re also more interesting & attractive. The look: modern or classic, your choice. But always distinctive.
The news gets even better: these are cheaper than framed photos!
5×7″ Metal Prints, with Easel Back (desk) or Shadow Block (wall) including in price: $24.95
6×6″ Chromaluxe, with Easel Back: also $24.95
Once customers try them, they’re hooked. It’s so easy, shows so much love, and costs so little.
So think of us next time you need a photogift fast. Katheryn or Jessica will make sure your photo looks its best, and are happy to suggest gifts based on your needs.
And how about a FRAME that’s always with you? Yep, iPad & iPhone cases!
By the way, phone cameras are just getting better & better. Check out what’s coming from Nokia, announced ahead of the iPhone 5 release in a few weeks. By all accounts, the Lumia 920’s camera reaches a new level of “Amazing!”
And right in synch comes Motorola Mobility (owned by Google) with their new Razr family additions.
