Make love, not war

Start the week with a “Zen-like” kind of feeling with Axe’s latest superbowl commercial. The message: make love, not war! Who could disagree? In addition, the execution is flawless, going directly into topics that we usually try to avoid but reminding us that love can really conquer it all.

Now, since we are on the topic, interesting marketing twist Axe took with this commercial being very different to their usual ones. Take a leap and give us your thoughts!

Talk about unexpected twists!

Here you have a very theatrical trailer for the French “Theatre de la Bastille”, but certainly not the boring kind. We seriously doubt anyone could imagine how this video ends, it’s quite a bit of a twist. A very interesting, yet admittedly slightly daring, humour! Be warned, the video is likely to leave you speechless at least for a moment.

Have fun watching!

Unitedprint takes over Fotobuch-Pionier Infowerk

02.01.2014, 14:47

Extending the line of services to Photo Products, LFP / advertising systems, and web services

On 1 January 2014, our holding company Unitedprint.com SE took over the Nuremberg-based Fotobuch-Pionier Infowerk GmbH together with its subsidiaries United Shop Services, Softimpress and the Klutzeweit digital print shop.

e-Communication through to web-to-print

Therewith, Unitedprint.com SE extends its range of products with photo products (photo prints, photo books, photo calendars, photo greetings cards, photo posters and canvas, photo wall decorations, photo cups and photo gifts), LFP/advertising systems (large-format printing, direct textile printing, relief varnish printing for banners, lettering, displays, flags, canvases, building covers, including packaging and assembly) and web services (homepages, apps, mobiles, e-mail marketing, recommendation marketing, cloud, social media, SEM, SEA, SEO). Furthermore, Unitedprint will enter the market in mid-January with Easyprint (the web-to-print portal for small companies, private individuals and families) and offers a completely new and individual online configurable textile range featuring T-shirts, polo shirts, hoodies, aprons and bags.

“We’re really looking forward to the great opportunities that our future with Unitedprint will offer us. With our experience and know-how, especially in the field of photo, digital and large-format printing, we’ll make a valuable contribution to ensuring Unitedprint continues to achieve above-average organic and profitable growth”, stated infowerk’s ongoing Managing Director, Winfried Gaber.

White Label partner programme for photo webshop

A webshop partner programme for photo products will be newly available and, as a White Label solution, enable trading partners to access the Europe-wide photo market free of charge. Jan Stradtmann, Unitedprint’s CFO: “In the age of the open, transparent and widely available internet, monopolistic structures provided by capital-market-financed photo and printing concerns are a thing of the past. With our webshop partner programme, every small photo dealer, every small print shop, every small publishing house and everyone involved in e-commerce will become a professional photo and print provider Europe-wide. In this way, we’re guaranteeing an equitable and long-overdue customer service at fair prices on the BtC photo and print market.”

We’re very excited for this year with a lot of interesting projects, challenges and possibilities. Check our Facebook and blog for news about products and services!
