What are PanePix?

PanePix are your high resolution images and photographs printed on rigid transparent panels.  When light passes through or reflects off of the panels, the images POP! with color, producing a unique and eye-catching display!  Perfect for windows, walls, lamp shades, or for making your own creations.  Tired of picture frames and the same old boring photo options?  Then PanePix is for you!

So what can you do with PanePix?

Photographs are flimsy, tear easily, and fade over time.  Picture frames are bulky, offer limited display options, and will clutter up the neatest of rooms.  Photo albums take up space and, if not left open on a table, don't actually show off your favorite pictures.

PanePix are versatile, standalone, and can be made with or without borders.  PanePix are virtually indestructible and can be attached to almost ANY surface in seconds!  They also make great gifts for anyone who likes pictures, and let's face it, EVERYBODY likes pictures!  So let's take a look at a few examples:

PanePix can go on windows; be used as borders; placed on or around mirrors and doors; on refrigerators; almost anywhere!

What makes PanePix so unique and cool?

Light!  When placed in a window, sunlight passes through the PanePix and makes your images just POP!  When used indoors, room lighting passes through the image and reflects back out, enhancing your favorite photographs and creating a very cool effect!

How do you put PanePix on windows and walls?  Is it easy?

It's as easy as using Glue Dots or using any removable or repositionable adhesive!  We provide Repositionable Glue Dots with every PanePix.  You also have the choices below which are available from your local retailers if you need more:

Although we recommend using the Removable and Repositionable adhesives, you can certainly use permanent adhesives if you're not planning on moving your PanePix.  All of the products shown above are available at local major retailers.

How are PanePix made?

We begin with a durable panel made of transparent material.  We use a proprietary printing and manufacturing process which results in your image permanently etched into the panel.

Wait...can I get them in ANY size? What about Really BIG?

For our Kickstarter project we're limiting selections to the standard photo sizes of 4x6, 5x7, and 8x10, along with border options. Once PanePix is fully funded and our website is complete, you will have dozens of template options to choose from. When the website is finished you will be able to get single panels as large as 12" by 23", and even standard size posters of 20" by 30"!

What do you need the money for?

The funds that you provide through Kickstarter will be used to gear up for production, complete the website development that allows you to upload and size your photos, and spread the word about PanePix.

We have already perfected the manufacturing process and purchased the necessary (and expensive!) substrate printer, so we just need a little more help to get to the finish line!

When do I send you my photos so you can make my PanePix?

Once our project has been funded we will first finish our website.  That should take about 30 days.  At that point, we will send you a link to the website so that you can use our custom templates to size and upload your photos.  You should have your PanePix about 2 weeks after you have uploaded your photos!

Risks and challenges

The single greatest risk is if our high resolution substrate printer breaks down, which at most could create a delay in shipping the rewards.

Another potential risk is the PanePix website file uploader, which is under development. Our plan is for each of you to upload your photos to the PanePix website once the project is funded, but even if the uploader is not fully functional, you will still be able to email them to us.
