Pixuru Produces World’s Largest iPhone Photo Print
Pixuru today will release a smartphone application that renders expensive Digital SLR cameras all but obsolete. To show off the Pixuru photo-to-canvas app’s capability, the company turned an iPhone 5 photo of the The Chicago Merchandise Mart into a stunning 25-foot wide canvas print, the world’s largest print from a smartphone. The app is free and available now on the App Store, and will be available for Android this summer.
Pixuru allows smartphoneographers to send any photos from their phones to Pixuru’s printing facility, choose the type (canvas, metal, wood, or framed prints) and size of print, and receive the order within a week. Simply take a picture or choose one from Instagram or Facebook and the app guides you through the rest of the process, simulating size and style on a wall background. Once users select the size and style of their wall art, they are led to a simple checkout process. The app will remember a user’s information to streamline the process for subsequent orders.
Pixuru has a patent-pending printing process and technology that can produce extremely large prints while keeping the integrity of the picture.
“Our groundbreaking printing process eliminates the need for most people to own a digital camera. We can enlarge any picture from their smartphone to the size of their couch and it will still look impeccable,” Pixuru founder Adam Fried said. “Pixuru is next step in the evolution of digital photography.”
There are four different types of wall art to choose from: canvas, metal, wood and framed. With the canvas, metal, or wood materials, you have the option of splitting one image into a three or four-panel split from one image. Each print is inspected before going out to ensure the professional quality Pixuru guarantees.
Pixuru produces professional quality wall art at consumer prices. The smallest print, a 6×6, is $20 and a 16×20 is $55, all with free shipping.
