In addition, there are other companies moving in this direction as well such as Priea that embeds ads in photo copies. The cool thing about Priea, which also acts as a social network, is that it delivers the final product to your door. So basically, you can upload and organize up to 30 images in your own collage format, then send it to Priea which then downloads it, prints it, and ships it.
This type of service is bound to cross to America soon as the increase in consumer-reporters, bloggers, ‘zine-creators, and general fans of digital photo prints continues to increase. What’s unknown so far however, is if there’s a return on the advertising investment in the “free” copies.
