Microsoft and CanvasPop Join Forces to Turn Digital Masterpieces Into Physical Art
Personalized Photo Printing Leader Integrates with Microsoft’s Fresh Paint App
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 10, 2013
CanvasPop and Microsoft today announced a collaboration that will allow people using Microsoft’s Fresh Paint app to easily print their digital art on high quality canvas.
The news comes just weeks after CanvasPop announced the launch of its photo printing API. The API allows app developers, website owners and brands to monetize their visual content by making it easy for their customers to turn images into beautiful canvas photo prints. Fresh Paint is the first painting app to integrate with the CanvasPop API, and the partnership signifies the huge potential of the growing app ecosystem.
“We’re proud to be partnering with Microsoft to offer a fun, creative and delightful experience and service to Fresh Paint users,” said CanvasPop co-founder, Adrian Salamunovic. “Microsoft valued our commitment to quality, our brand and our technology. The Fresh Paint team’s dedication to innovation is shared by our team and something we really respect.”
The CanvasPop development team worked closely with the team at Fresh Paint to develop a technology that would enhance the Fresh Paint experience for people across all devices.
After putting the final touch on a painting, customers can choose from a variety of CanvasPop sizes on which to print. The transaction is completed in a pop-up shopping cart, as part of the API. CanvasPop takes care of producing the finished canvas print and shipping it directly to the customer.
“There’s a growing trend that’s bringing digital content back to the physical world,” said CanvasPop co-founder, Nazim Ahmed. “And we’re excited to put that ability right in the hands of the millions of Fresh Paint users out there.”
To kick off the launch, Fresh Paint customers will receive a special offer of $30 off their first CanvasPop print created using Fresh Paint.
“We’re thrilled to be collaborating with CanvasPop to make it easier for people to turn the masterpieces they create in Fresh Paint into canvas prints that they can hang in their homes and give as gifts,” said Ira Snyder, General Manager, Microsoft Start-Up Business Group.
The print to canvas feature is included in the newest version of Fresh Paint, which will become available with Windows 8.1 on October 18. Learn more here: http://www.canvaspop.com/msfreshpaint
