About this project

What is Postalpix?

We're glad you asked!

Postalpix was the very first smartphone app to allow you to select and order prints for home delivery. Photos stored on your camera roll could/can be easily uploaded and printed in a variety of sizes and mailed directly to your home.

Return of the Je...uh, Aluminum

A successful Kickstarter campaign means we'll be able to bring back aluminum prints, a very popular print type amongst our customers.

Metal prints are a new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Your photos will take on an almost magical luminescence. Aluminum prints are easily cleaned, ultra-hard, scratch-resistant and waterproof/weatherproof. 

 

 

 

  

 

Introducing Maple Wood Prints

Maple Wood Prints are printed directly on to 1/2" thick maple surfaced wood board. Wood prints provide a warm and natural-looking print that is eco-friendly.

 

 

 

 Wall Collage

Our Wall Collage photo displays include a complete system for precise and easy installation of beautiful photo walls from Prints on Photo Paper mounted on black-edged 2mm masonite.

Each Wall Collage is supported by a grid of push-in pegs, so your pictures hang aligned and stay level, and you can add, remove and rearrange pictures in seconds. 

Choose from 4 arrangements and have your choice of Lustre or Glossy surface.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

The largest risk we face with this development project would be in adding to many features to the app. In doing so, we could get to a point in the development cycle where we couldn't add all the products to the app.

To prevent this from happening, we have created a detailed technical specifications documents that clearly outlines the features and products we will be adding. Our developers will not deviate from this plan as we move through the development cycle. Furthermore, our developers are already familiar with our current infrastructure, so there is no need for them to learn about our environment before beginning this project. This allows us to get started quickly.

To ensure a successful development cycle that includes all of the products we've mentioned, we will first lay the programming groundwork enabling us to add these products to the app. If we encounter time restraints, we can limit the product options and not the product itself and still complete the development on time.

For example, let's say we lay the groundwork to add metal prints and successfully add the product to the app. If we're running low on time for this particular product, we can limit the sizes and surface types that we offer in the release but still release the app with metal prints.
