The photo printing app Printicular has come to New Zealand, and from 16th November, Kiwis will finally be able to hit print on all of their photos from their phone, anytime and anywhere thanks to a piece of homegrown innovation, and a partnership with an iconic New Zealand brand.
Printicular, an app available to to download for iPhone & Android devices, lets users easily print local and social media photos directly from their phones for local pick up at 66 Warehouse Stationery stores across New Zealand.
The app started as the brainchild of Kiwi app developer and creative agency MEA, and launched in the United States in 2012. It is already available for photo printing at over 9,000 Walgreens stores in the USA and 1,600 dm-droguerie pharmacies in Germany, with ten million photos printed using the app to date.
“We’re excited to work with MEA to bring Printicular back home to New Zealand, and to be involved with a Kiwi company that is leading in photo printing innovation,” says Pejman Okhovat, CEO of Warehouse Stationery.
Users can now download the app, select photos, print to their nearest Warehouse Stationery store, and pay when they collect their photos.
“In the age of the smartphone, people still love printing photos. Whether it’s for scrapbooking, home decorating or sending new baby snaps to Granny, Printicular makes photo printing easy, convenient and much quicker than conventional kiosks,” says MEA co-founder and CEO Rodney Macfarlane.
“Printing photos has the added benefit of ensuring that your most precious memories are safe. People know they can get their photos out from the cloud, and safely store them at home or share them physically,”
The app lets users print in a range of sizes including square print formats suitable for Instagram, and from every major online photo sharing site including Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and Dropbox.
