CafePress Gives Shoppers 'Emotion in Motion' Through a New Partnership With Snapily03:30 EDT Thursday, October 11, 2012LOUISVILLE, KY., Oct. 11, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CafePress Inc. (Nasdaq:PRSS), The World's Customization EngineTM, and Snapily, the resource for 3-D and animated printed effects, have teamed up to enable CafePress customers to bring their favorite photos to life with the illusion of movement and depth. No glasses are required to see the 3D effect and the animated effect allows you to view two images in the same space, as you rotate the print back and forth. Using lenticular printing, CafePress customers can now take ordinary digital pictures and create unique keepsakes either by designing their own from scratch or getting started by choosing from CafePress' catalog of inspired designs. Your everyday photographs are visually enhanced onto dual layer reinforced greeting cards, ornaments and business cards. Kids and teens love to personalize their school supplies with 3-D or animated backpack tags, rulers and notebooks. "This is an ideal partnership in so many ways – combining CafePress' vast catalog of images with this amazing technology is going to really bring products to life," says Marc Cowlin, Director of Marketing at CafePress.com. "We think shoppers are really going to enjoy creating one-of-a-kind products by simply uploading their favorite photos into a great selection of templates." CafePress customers can use 3-D and animated technology to personalize an amazing assortment of products. iPhone cases Bookmarks Motion Photo Cards Favor Cards Greeting Cards Back Pack Tags Photo Ornaments Rulers 8x10 Pictures Notebooks Large Notebooks Business Cards Coming soon, shoppers will also have the option of buying magnets that are 3-D and animated.
