LONG BEACH, Calif. – Sept. 7, 2018 – There are special family moments in life that often cannot be replicated, so bring the family together this year for Grandparents Day to create new memories and reminisce about the past with some help from Epson. From restoring and archiving childhood pictures with the world’s fastest personal photo scanner1, to printing quality prints for family trees and scrapbooks with innovative cartridge-free EcoTank® printers, to projecting a slideshow and digitized old family movies, Epson offers the latest technology to preserve, create and share what’s priceless.

“Grandparents love sharing and reliving memories with their families – browsing through old photos and sharing the fun and embarrassing stories and life lessons that accompany each picture,” said Nils Madden, director, consumer imaging, Epson America. “With Epson technology, grandchildren and grandparents alike can easily digitize and share memories for family legacies to live forever.”

Whether preserving Polaroid photos hidden away in shoeboxes, creating customized prints from milestone occasions or displaying a slideshow of your favorite moments, Epson helps families celebrate Grandparents Day with a range of helpful ideas to digitize and share family history and memories.

  • Preserve Family Legacies – Held captive in boxes and albums stored in the back of closets, dig up old family photos and revisit the good old days. Bring memories from the past up-to-speed using the world’s fastest personal photo scanner1, the FastFoto® FF-680W High-Speed Photo and Document Scanning System. Scan, restore and organize postcards, panoramic photos up to 36 inches and Polaroid photos for quick and easy sharing, archiving or enlargements. The Wi-Fi enabled2 FastFoto Scanner scans both the front and back of images to preserve valuable dates and personal handwritten notes and can automatically upload to the cloud3, making it simple to share images with family members that live miles away.
  • Create Lasting Memories – Creating custom prints of your favorite family moments is a breeze with the Expression® ET-2750 EcoTank All-in-One Supertank Printer, featuring cartridge-free printing with up to two years of ink in the box4 – enough to print up to 6,500 pages black/5,200 color5, the equivalent to about 30 ink cartridge sets6.

With a built-in memory card slot and wireless printing features, it’s easy to edit and conveniently print photos from tablets and smartphones without the hassle of connecting to a computer7. Using the Epson iPrintTM app, connect to Epson Creative Print and design custom photo collages, stationary, and more to send to family and friends.
