Adding Data on the Back of Photos Can Boost Printing


Sparta, NJ—Nearly half of all respondents in a recent study by Rise Above Research are interested in printing more information on the back of photos. This interest includes adding the date, location as well as the people in the photo.

In addition, the study revealed this desire was highest among twenty-five- to forty-four- year-old consumers. What’s more, they are the most active group when it comes to printing photos.

In addition, there was significant interest expressed in accessing more information from QR codes on prints. Respondents also were interested in having snapshot-sized photo prints with sticky backs. These prints were popularized by small-format prints from instant smartphone printers.

Consequently, the research firm believes the opportunity is there for vendors to introduce value-added features to traditional prints that would make them more appealing.
