LOS ANGELES, April 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Booxie, the only social storytelling iOS app with print capabilities, is excited to begin the official rollout of their Booxie Royalties Program, the only platform of its kind that offers users the opportunity to earn a percentage of sales from their profile's printed photo books. The Booxie Royalties Program is perfect for photographers, chefs, authors, and visual artists alike to share their talents and creations with their fans and followers in a tangible way all while opening up an additional stream of income. Small businesses, aspiring up-and-coming talent, and even Booxie's everyday user will be able to sell their custom creations through Booxie which will also open up a new platform of followers and fans.
Booxie is also the only app of its kind where users can turn special memories, ideas, and interests into imaginative digital stories that can be shared publicly or privately over social networks, through email, text messaging, and an embedded link. Creative individuals of all types can present the full breadth of their work while offering collectibles to their fans at an affordable price with 4.25" x 4.25" photo books printed on superior high-grade semi-gloss premium paper.
"We're excited to open up new ways for photographers, stylists, designers, chefs, and visual artists to create, print and share all from one place," said Ray Slay, Co-Founder and CEO of Booxie, LLC, who spent part of his early career as a professional photographer before becoming an entertainment executive. "Booxie will become an invaluable tool and platform for visual creators to present their creations in the app and through the multitude of sharing capabilities available, as well as have the opportunity to garner extra income from their followers and fans by offering their work in a perfect-bound printed book."
Any and all users can participate in the Booxie Royalties Program after they have downloaded and installed the app by "opting in" from the settings menu and following the set-up instructions. The user can then begin to transform their photos and videos into shareable multimedia multi-page books that best reflect their own creativity and style using Booxie design tools of fonts, graphics and backgrounds. Booxie Royalties Program users then will have the choice to share their creations to the Booxie World and allow the app's Community, as well as their followers and fans, the opportunity to purchase their Booxies earning a percentage of the sales.
Booxie creators can also increase the visibility of their Booxies by automatically sharing their Booxies on other platforms like Facebook and Instagram, privately through email and text-messaging, as well as posting to websites through an embed link. Booxie's unique "web view" allows anyone with access to the internet the ability to view and purchase Booxies from users who are enrolled in the Booxie Royalties Program.
The Booxie Select Royalties Program is open to photographers and visual artists specifically selected by Booxie. These users will have separate pricing tables and royalties' percentage per unit, the opportunity to print and sell 8" x 8" Booxies, an exclusive category on the Booxie Explore Page to display their work, as well as the potential for additional marketing efforts supported by Booxie.
"In the early stages, we consistently strived to develop the perfect platform for photographers and visual artists to showcase their work while also allowing the app to provide them an additional source of revenue," said David Alexander, Co-Founder Booxie, LLC and who also co-founded A&I Fine Art + Photography, one of the foremost professional photo labs in the country, which he sold in 2004. "I specifically wanted the print and paper quality of our Booxies to be objects worthy of the art displayed, similar to how we now value tintype and daguerreotype photographs."
"As a photographer, I love that Booxies can be shared and viewed online, but as a fan of the printed image, it is wonderful that people can order, collect and enjoy my photographs as I always envisioned – outside the virtual environment," said Bagshaw. "I'm excited that Booxie can provide this new and innovative way to share my images with the world. Booxies, which are multipage and can include both video and still images, can give me more impactful ways of telling visual stories or sharing a vision or body of work than a single image can. The quality of the paper, color and detail is beautiful."
Booxie's 4.25" square photo books are sized to serve as collectibles or marketing tools for both established and growing visual artists. Photo books created and printed with Booxie feature semi-gloss high-quality softcover full-bleed pages and 'stitch-free' binding, matching the quality of expensive printing at a fraction of the cost.
