Creative Memories New Company Revealed
Creative Memories has finally revealed the plans for the new direction of the company as they attempt to emerge from bankruptcy (pending court approval next month). The new company will be called "Ahni and Zoe by Creative Memories."
There is a very limited range of products available. Fast to Fabulous (Fast2Fab) preprinted and preassembled albums which have refill pages available, packaged with page protectors. There are new slide-in albums with pages for six vertical or horizontal photos and a 12 x 12 slide in page refill option as well. Packs of 4 x 6 papers to use along with photos in the slide-in albums are also available. There are a few other items in the catalog - a tape runner and refills, four pens, a photo storage box and magnetic display boards, but no tools.
Ahni & Zoe will offer an app called "inawink" that will allow you to shoot, edit, organize and print your photos. Photos can be tagged for printing and when you have tagged a set number of photos they will automatically be printed and mailed to you. The app will only be available for the iOS platform (Apple) but there will be a web-based version "coming soon."
You can see the catalog for the new streamlined company by clicking HERE.
The intention of this reorganization is to simplify and streamline the process of sharing photos by making it easy to get them off your devices and into an album. I would love to hear what you think about the new product line and the catalog. Please leave a comment with your first impressions from looking at the catalog - do these products appeal to you? Do you think that the app would help you do more with the photos that tend to stay on your phone? What items are missing that you would like to see offered?
For those of you with no interest in the Creative Memories bankruptcy and the new company, I have added a link to a project I did a couple of years ago - the lids of Tropicana orange juice bottles make great tea light candle holders - you can read the original post HERE.
This is moving week for my in-laws so much of my time will be spent helping out with all of the final packing and other details. It's amazing how much is involved with moving out of a house after 34 years!
