PRESS RELEASE: 3D Print Service SnapilyPro debuts at Photoshop World
As Hollywood and Madison Avenue step-up demand for 3D, Snapily unveils fast, easy, 3D professional printing service
March 24, 2010, Orlando — Photoshop World is featuring the debut of SnapilyPro.com, a high quality, rapid-ship 3D print service for any number of prints and one-off proofs. Russell Brown, 3D evangelist and Senior Creative Director at Adobe® Systems spearheaded testing and feedback of SnapilyPro.com for compatibility with Adobe Photoshop® software and its 3D tools.
“Designers, photographers and printers who want 'in' on the burgeoning entertainment and advertising boom in 3D have all the tools they need to do the job, now that SnapilyPro.com is available,” Brown says. “SnapilyPro allows Photoshop users to realize 3D projects quickly and cost-effectively.”
To use the service, professionals need only upload Photoshop layers, and choose size and quantity to get a preview and a quote before confirming their orders on SnapilyPro.com.
Snapily's easy to make, personalized 3D products are used in entertainment, family gifts, and promotions projects the world-over. The professional service version of the technology, SnapilyPro.com, is being demonstrated in the company's booth #210 at Photoshop World, March 24-26, in Orlando.
Shahar Bin-Nun, Snapily vice president of sales, says that interest in 3D printing has increased substantially since the entertainment industry stepped up its use of 3D in movies, television, and related promotions.
“Demand for 3D is high,” Bin-Nun says. “and SnapilyPro is happy to be the first company to offer personalized and short run 3D lenticular prints. Designers and photographers using Photoshop CS4 Extended can now share their 3D lenticular projects with clients.”
SnapilyPro.com allows site visitors to upload layers from Photoshop (PSD) or HumanEyes Creative3D files. Users can also choose to upload two JPG or TIFF images to create a "flip" effect. SnapilyPro.com simulates the 3D image in an online preview, for reference.
In addition to entertainment applications, increasingly popular 3D uses include conventional and highly personalized mini posters, business cards, flipped wedding invitations, postcards, greeting cards, fine arts prints, flipped flyers and much more, including special edition "keepsake" collector cards, tickets and programs.
Pricing for SnapilyPro.com prints and proof start at $6, plus shipping.
