PRESS RELEASE: Luci Goes Beyond Scrapbooking
Lucidiom's Luci Creative Station Adds New Profit-Making Features
Vienna, VA, July 10, 2006 - Lucidiom Inc., developer of the APM photo kiosk, unveiled its expanded Luci, a creative photo kiosk program packed with new content and products designed to open new revenue streams for photofinishing, scrapbook and craft retailers.
Luci first debuted this winter with photo kiosk features tailored for scrapbookers, such as exclusive 8x8 and 12x12 Luci Layouts and specialty borders. This summer Luci introduces additional creative photo category products: wall art, collages, DVD Cinema and Red Letter Cards, as well as numerous new Luci Layouts and print sizes.
"Retailers consistently need to go beyond the standard 4x6 print in order to increase profits and to offer more creative solutions to their customers. Luci does just that. It's an entire program designed to bring the digital photo business and the paper creativity business together," said Lucidiom Vice President of Scrapbook & Craft Business Development Kesley Anderson. "With Luci's new products, retailers can expand their product offerings and reach out to a wider range of customers - from classic soccer moms and dads to teenagers to grandparents - anyone who wants to take their family memories and display them creatively."
With Luci, consumers can make personalized wall art from their photos, combine photos in themed collages and create customized cards and stationery with Red Letter Cards. Luci also comes with borders that coordinate with Prism's Prismatic Packs and a newly expanded line of Luci Layouts for scrapbooking. Retailers get a batch of new content designs each month to keep customers coming back.
A non-paper product now available on Luci is DVD Cinema-a simple-to-create photo slideshow put to one of a number of musical styles. Early retail adopters of the DVD product have reported higher than expected ROI and extremely positive customer response.
Luci makes creating a work of art easy, with a 17-inch touch screen and numerous exclusive content designs. Luci embraces traditional paper scrappers as well since consumers can use Luci to print standard size photos and enlargements, taking advantage of Lucidiom's Photo IQ suite of tools to adjust color, fix red eye and crop. Index prints and photo CDs are also available for those who are serious about archiving and preserving their memories fully.
With Luci, consumers also can scan in old photos or kids' artwork to print or to incorporate into their masterpieces. Scrapbookers even can scan in completed scrapbook pages and print the pages to make duplicate albums for family and friends.
Luci comes with Lucidiom's award-wining APM software and network support that allow retailers to manage all of their APMs online from any location and handle every business need-from analyzing business operations to tracking sales trends to providing customer support.
