LifePics Helps Parents Capture Back-to-School Memories With Affordable Photo Gifts


August 15, 2011, BOULDER, Colo. – It’s back-to-school time, which for most families means the start of many things: new routines, new classes, new sports and activities, and most of all new experiences. Now families that capture their back-to-school moments using digital cameras or smart phones can rely on LifePics for high-quality prints and photo gifts, even one-hour prints.

Using LifePics’ unique applications, families can do much more than simply post a back-to-school photo on a social media site. Instead, parents can create lasting memories for their children, faraway grandparents and friends with the array of photo gifts available from LifePics’ designated retailers. Many gifts and prints are available immediately, at a local photo-finishing center.

Among the dozens of interesting back-to-school photo gifts:

• A soft cover photo book – An inexpensive photo book (usually less than $10) with a soft, bendable cover and glossy pages. Perfect as an unexpected gift for a grandparent and a fun way for kids to get involved with making a photo book.
• A keepsake ornament – An affordable and meaningful way to track children’s growth over time, a keepsake ornament with a back-to-school photo also displays the year (less than $20).

What makes LifePics unique is that digital images can be instantly transferred to dozens of local photo development shops so parents can pick up many back-to-school photo gifts and prints within hours, rather than waiting weeks for an online order. This is especially important for those who want to share back-to-school memories with grandparents or others not highly connected via social media. And with more than 13,000 retailers across the nation, including big-box stores and specialty photo labs, families are assured of finding a photo-retailer convenient to them.

One parent said, “My oldest daughter is starting kindergarten so this back-to-school year is especially poignant to me. I love the idea of doing more with this special occasion than simply adding her ‘first day of school’ picture to the slew of digital photos that clutter my computer. LifePics is the perfect way to mark this special occasion.”
