As families continue to juggle busy schedules, parents are at the heart of it all. During this year’s Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, Epson is encouraging family members to gather old photos, stroll down memory lane, and share treasured stories and milestones in celebration of Family Photo Month. To help recognize families everywhere, Epson is offering a range of promotions up to $100 off of the FastFoto® Wireless High-Speed Photo Scanner at select participating retailers in May and June.*
“Countless memories are stored away in boxes and never spoken about until there is a reason to dig them out. We don’t want those irreplaceable memories to be forgotten. With Epson Family Photo Month starting this May, we want to celebrate moms and dads and bring families together to rediscover, print, and share cherished memories,” said Mike Isgrig, vice president, consumer sales, Epson America.
In celebration of Family Photo Month, Shaquille O’Neal and his mother Lucille O’Neal are featured in Epson’s Family Photo Month campaign, reliving, and sharing memories, while creating new ones by scanning cherished photos together. In addition, with the right technology, such as the FastFoto scanner and EcoTank® Photo Supertank printer, it’s easy to create digital backups, slide shows, picture books, and photo copies to share with family, friends, and future generations to come:
Back Up Your Memories
In the U.S. today, there are billions of unscanned photos tucked away in attics, basements, garages, and closets. To avoid losing them to deterioration or natural disasters, families can turn to versatile scanning solutions like the FastFoto FF-680W Wireless High-Speed Photo Scanning System. Quickly scan thousands of photos – as fast as one photo per second1 and easily restore, save, and organize old photos, postcards, panoramas, and documents. Priceless memories can be digitized, salvaged, and brought back to life with auto enhancement, color restoration and enlargements.
Share Your Memories for Generations to Come
Instantly upload digitized photos to online storage solutions for archiving, email them to grandparents or siblings, or share them during family gatherings or through social media. Together with the Epson FastFoto app,2 capture the voice of loved ones and create custom videos with music, audio, text, and transitions from an iOS® or AndroidTM smartphone or device, and relive treasured moments for generations to come.
Craft and Decorate with Memories
Adored photographs can also be utilized to decorate the home or crafted into personalized gifts. While original copies are meant for safe-keeping, additional lab-quality color photo copies can be printed from the convenience of the home with the cartridge-free EcoTank Photo ET-8500 and EcoTank Photo ET-8550 all-in-one Supertank printers. These photo printers have extraordinary media handling capabilities; families can print on a variety of paper types including cardstock and other specialty media up to 1.3 mm thick. Making any image come to life, the EcoTank Photo ET-8500 can print borderless photos up to 8.5" x 11" and the EcoTank Photo ET-8550 wide-format can print borderless photos up to 13" x 19". Print for up to two years with each included and replacement set of bottles.3 With low-cost replacement ink bottles, families can print 4” x 6” photos for about 4 cents each compared to 40 cents with cartridges4 so there’s no need to worry about running out of ink or high photo printing costs.
