It’s Friday! And with Friday comes my Friday Favorites. There have been some very exciting things going on this week. Not only was Imagekind included in a local news story about one of our member artists, Imagekind frames were also included on national news! Additionally, some member artists are really stepping up to help fight cancer with their art. Lastly we have released some new features that are sure to help with member reporting.
Imagekind Frames on ABC’s Good Morning America
Look mom, we’re on TV! On June 6, ABC aired a segment on Good Morning America Weekend titled “Picture Perfect: Spring Clean Your Digital Life.” Becky Worley, a technology contributor for the show, walked viewers through a “day in the life” of the De Lauzon family as they struggled to keep their large (over 20,000!) collection of digital photos organized.
At the end of the segment, the host surprised the family by unveiling a wall full of Imagekind products including Story Frames, framed photos, and a canvas print, noting, “Snapfish helped us with all of this.”
Imagekind member Liz Moody is showcasing her work at the inaugural exhibit at the newly opened Shooting Gallery in Seattle. She got a great feature in the Seattle PI Blog about her upcoming gallery show. Her work utilizes a medley of collage and paint to create playful and highly decorative pieces.

One of the coolest things about this is that her Imagekind gallery is mentioned right in the post as well. Fellow artists should take note. Directing fans of your work to Imagekind where they can easily buy your prints with a simple click is sure to help increase the awareness of your art, which in turn will help increase sales.
What is especially cool about the Art for Cancer group is how they are utilizing YouTube and other social media sites to get their message – and it’s member’s artwork – out in front of more people!
New Features in Artist Reports
We are constantly looking for ways to improve the Imagekind service for both our shoppers and artists. Better sales reporting has been something many of our artists have requested for some time now. That’s why we are excited to announce that this week we launched even more features in the advanced reporting for our members. Now you can get the stats for each of your images and find out who favorited your work . You can see an example of just some of the new features below, but do make sure and check it out for yourself in your Imagekind admin.
