Sports photography firm Glossy Finish has added more than 20 DNP Imagingcomm America (DNP IAM) dye-sublimation printers for on-site print production at tournaments. Glossy Finish utilizes the DNP IAM DS620A and DS820A for panoramic team photos, individual player portraits, and an all-new multi-print option featuring seven unique images of the player, according to a press release.
“When we were first introduced to DNP printers, we instantly knew they were a fit. We love the size, durability, ease of use, and consistency in color, so we bought a bunch of them,” said Araiv. “When we started offering panoramic prints and the DS820A came out, it was like a lightbulb went off. We could really move and sell our products, and now one of the highest-selling products we offer is our 8×24 panoramic print.”
When sports tournaments went on a brief hiatus in 2020 due to the pandemic, Ariav and his business partner and CTO Matt Winer doubled down on their technology, ensuring they could come back better than before in 2021 and 2022, according to DNP. Throughout the 12-week 2022 summer season, Glossy Finish sold more than 22,000 units of their striking panoramic prints.
“Customers love that they can leave an event with a large print,” said Ariav. “It offers them a physical reminder of their child doing what they love in a way that can be proudly displayed for everyone to see.”
