To All Makers: Make Modern Photo Books in Minutes Using Only Your Thumb

Impressed™ launches new iPhone App that lets you quickly make, share and print décor-ready photo books.

(Toronto April 16, 2014) — Impressed today announced the launch of its iPhone app that lets you make modern photo books on your phone in just a few minutes. Clean, modern design drives this Toronto-based company that combines mobile expertise with premium print products made to showcase on your coffee table. Impressed is calling all of the Makers out there to create a premium photo book for their home or their loved one, with only their thumb.

The rise in tablet and smartphone use has caused a parallel demand for products that are more personal, discrete, and tactile. For proof you only have to look to the blooming DIY/Maker Movement that has fuelled online handmade marketplaces like Etsy to exceed $1 billion in worldwide sales transactions last year.

Particularly, Impressed™ founder, Lynne McEachern, has seen a swell in demand for products that make use of the multitude of photos stored, and often buried, on mobile phones; specifically those photos taken with the ever-popular Instagram.

“We launched Impressed for iPhone to answer the demand we’ve experienced amongst consumers who want to curate and bring the beautiful images they take on their phones into the real world. The app lets you make stylish photo books you can showcase in your home or share with family, in a matter of minutes.”  Said McEachern.

Impressed launched their iPad app late last year with 2 hardcover book sizes, seeing good traction in the design-savvy mom set. The new iPhone app will have a built-in Instagram feed for inspiration on how to style and accessorize your book collection, and has a new sophisticated 5x5 softcover book catering more to Instagram users.

Books range in price from $19-$39, the app is available in Canada and the US. Get the app here:
