PRESS RELEASE: Phanfare Introduces Photo Books and Holiday Cards
Phanfare has announced it is now selling a full line of photo books, holiday cards, photographic prints and archive DVDs in time for the holiday season. If you are the type of person who likes to jump right in, check them out at http://www.phanfare.com/shop.
Phanfare custom designed a high quality photo book product "that is a perfect complement to the clean display and archival storage that Phanfare offer at Phanfare," according to the company. The 8x8 inch and 12x12 hardcover books are printed on 100 weight paper on HP Indigo printers with full wrapped photo covers.
The books are bound using a side stitching process to ensure they will stay together for generations to come. The configuration system is flexible, allowing you creative control over the finished product, but it also has the ability to create a book with an automatic layout in just a few minutes.
For holiday cards, Phanfare hired a local artist to create designs unique to Phanfare. Phanfare is offering three different types of cards:
• digitally printed 5x7 inch folded cards
• digitally printed 5x7 inch two-sided flat cards
• 4x8 inch photo cards on photo paper
Within each type Phanfare has dozens of designs and full customization. All cards ship with matching envelopes.
Subscription-based DVD Archiving
Phanfare also now offers archive DVDs on a one-off and subscription basis. The subscription service is a favorite. You sign up once, get a full copy of your entire collection on DVDs and then once per quarter, Phanfare sends you your new photos and videos on DVD.
The DVD includes metadata like captions, album descriptions and both the original and modified images. For videos, Phanfare includes the archival version of the video. Each DVD comes in a standard DVD case that arranges nicely on a shelf for that very rainy day.
Finally, Phanfare has made improvements in its printing service. The printing service is now much faster to work with on the Web. Prints are printed on Kodak paper.
All products are custom designed by Phanfare. Phanfare stands by the products it sells. If for any reason you have a problem, the company will either reprint your order or refund your money.
