LONG BEACH, Calif., Nov. 18, 2009 – It’s that time of year when holiday activities seem to never end: the annual office party, family and neighborhood get-togethers, and, of course, gift making and giving. So whether you’re hosting or attending, or buying or making, Epson has a range of easy-to-use and affordable products that can help anyone make a lasting impression this holiday season. Here are three fun examples:
Unleash your holiday creativity – Nothing is more eye-catching and memorable to family and friends than personalized, photo-rich greeting cards, party invitations, family newsletters, or party favors. Epson’s new Artisan® 810 all-in-one printer, scanner and copier helps consumers easily and quickly print dazzling images and holiday gifts with a host of unique creative features and photo quality preferred by consumers 3-to-1 over the competition.
Go big this holiday season – Nothing can capture the attention of an entire room like a 120-inch projected video image. Epson’s MovieMate™ 60 combines a projector, CD/DVD player, microphone input, and stereo speakers in one portable unit, giving families an affordable and versatile solution for home entertainment in any room of the house. Just plug it in to an outlet and watch a DVD, play a video game or view your holiday photo slide show.
Make a lasting impression at holiday parties – What better gift to leave a party with than photos with family and friends. Epson’s award-winning PictureMate® Charm 4”x6” photo printer is a fun and portable photo printer offering better-than-lab quality. Its superior photo quality, economical print costs, long-lasting prints, and powerful image enhancement tools make PictureMate Charm a welcome addition to any holiday event.
