MyPhotopipe announces 4-by-8 foot photo print made from digital camera


Newsline International - MyPhotopipe.com, Atlanta, Ga., USA, announced "the Web's largest, standard photo print": a 4,608-square-inch, 4-foot by 8-foot print made on standard Fuji Crystal Archive photographic paper. The first was installed at the headquarters of the Atlanta Falcons football team.

"The media talks a lot about a 10-cent snapshot at a big box retailer but the high-end of the market is the other half of the digital photography story," says David Ragland, chairman. "These photographs are powerful moments in sports and they need to be big to have the full impact.

According the Pete Casabonne, MyPhotopipe president, the company offers 94 print sizes. "The professionals and the serious amateurs don't fit into neat little boxes," he said.

MyPhotopipe.com was launched in April, 2005, when the founder and the former CEO of US Wireless Online Inc. partnered to acquire a controlling interest in Color Genesis, a 26-year-old Atlanta pro lab.
