In case you haven’t heard, over these next two weeks I’m going to be diving deeper into the world of canvas to give you all the exciting details you might not have been aware of before. But before I do that, I need to tell you guys a little bit about SnapBox–where we came from, who we are, and where we’re going. Only by knowing those things will you fully be able to understand our passion and commitment to printing your photos. So today, I’m going to talk to you about the “new” SnapBox!
I’m not sure if you guys have noticed this or not, but the SnapBox site has changed a little bit in the last couple months. We’re slowly switching things up so it’s easier for you to navigate and to order, and we’re prepping for some new and exciting things coming this year! But more than that, we just really want you to have a better understanding of us as a company and why we do what we do. Hopefully this will help explain why Free Your Photos® is so close to our hearts.
SnapBox was born about three and a half years ago from our parent company, JONDO. JONDO began in 1989 when our owner and operator, John Doe (yes, that’s his real name), started printing art in his garage using break through (at that time) digital printing technology. As the demand for digital technology grew, so did his business, eventually outgrowing his garage. He didn’t know it then, but John played an important role in helping digital printing technology take root in the market!
Eventually, we had a lot of people coming to JONDO to print their personal photos even though we only printed fine art prints, so John decided there needed to be a branch that could sell directly to the consumer. This is when SnapBox was formed. From day one, our goal has been to provide everyday consumers and photo enthusiasts with the quality and expectations that fine artists have traditionally required because, believe it or not, your photos are art! They are images that speak to you and represent something that moved your heart, and we want to present that art back to you in a deserving way.
I think our mission statement pulls everything together nicely:
So what exactly does all this mean? There are a few things that I want you to understand. First and foremost, SnapBox believes in the pictures you take and in the process of printing them to fill your home with amazing memories. All of the photos on your computer and your phone are experiences that you value and treasure, but right now everyone is too comfortable with letting their precious memories be forgotten. Your memories are worth something; they are valuable! They should be displayed and shared with the ones you love because they will bring you joy every time you look at them! It’s our goal to help you realize the benefit to tangible, printed photos. That’s why everything we do is fueled by our mantra: Free Your Photos®.
But with all of that mushy-gushy stuff comes the fact that we know what we’re doing. We’ve been doing research, engineering our products, and printing on them for so long that we’ve truly mastered the process. We know how to make a canvas that lasts for generations, and we print in a way that values the experiences captured by your camera. So take comfort in the fact that your photos are being treated with the utmost care and sensitivity that any of our JONDO fine art clients receive.
I’d love to talk more about SnapBox and why we’re in the business of freeing your photos, so if you have questions about any of this, please leave me a comment below. I hope that through this canvas series you’ll start to see the “new” SnapBox shine through! Later this week we’re going to dive deeper into what makes our canvas products different, so stay tuned. And don’t forget our sale is still going on! Start shopping here.
