PhotoPoint and iPrint.com
have introduced personalized gift items in time for the holiday season. Their new online service offers a FREE customizable Mouse Pad (to the first 2000 people who fill out a survey) and a selection of gifts personalized with your photos and messages.
There are about a dozen firms that offer a free service of storing your photos on the web and allowing you to exchange them with your friends and family but according to company spokesperson
PhotoPoint, is the world's largest (free) photo sharing Website (with more than 4 million photos stored).
Last month, iPrint.com, a
leading online print shop, announced a partnership that will provide PhotoPoint
members with a new,
customizable service for ordering personalized gifts
that feature their favorite PhotoPoint
photos. With the click of a
button, members can turn their favorite digital images into unique and
special gifts, choosing from such items as mouse pads, T-shirts, mugs,
teddy bears, coasters, wall clocks, photo Post-It Notes, cubes, baby
announcements, and more. The
companies also announced that they are sponsoring a special, limited time
promotion that gives PhotoPoint members a
free photo-customized mouse pad in return for some real-time customer
"It makes perfect sense that, given the strong
photo-sharing nature of our membership community, we partner with iPrint.com
to provide our members with a means for sharing their favorite images
offline," said David Rowley, PhotoPoint
pleased to be adding this service in time for the upcoming holiday season,
and expect that our members will be very creative in choosing unique gifts
to further showcase their favorite photos to family and friends."
According to Royal P. Farros, CEO and Chairman of iPrint.com,
iPrint.com's creating customized photo gifts and mementos is very easy
using the service and consumers will save up to 50% of traditional print
