Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 20, 2006
myPhotopipe.com, Inc. (OTC: MPPC) today released data that taken together suggest that this years' holiday season may be a record one for digital photo processors and that photographic gifts created from digital photos will appear in record numbers under Christmas trees across the nation.
According to myPhotopipe.com, an online photo processor for owners of digital cameras, in the first four weeks of the holiday selling season the Company's web site registered a surprisingly strong 15% growth over September traffic and an even more impressive growth in page views, up 61%. More telling -- between October 1st and November 15th, a record breaking 16,320 new users bookmarked or registered for company services. Also up were first time orders from new customers. Revenues in October were nearly double that of a year ago at a run rate of $1,296,000 (http://www.myphotopipe.com).
While the company doesn't break out product-specific data, October downloads for the software used to create photo book were exceptionally strong as were early shipments of photo greeting cards. Also up were sales of the high-margin photo enlargements, a signature product for the Company.
The Company attributed the October results partly to the previously announced partnerships with the National Association of Photoshop Professionals and Shutterbug Magazine but largely to the growing popularity of photo prints. Advances in digital cameras have helped more photographers make an extraordinary photograph which, in turn, stimulates an interest in turning that photograph into a print, wall art, framed prints, or photo books.
The Company's web traffic suggests photographic products will appear in record numbers under Christmas trees across the nation and that this holiday season will be exceptionally strong one for online services.

The Company offers more than 100 print options, online photo sharing, photo books, framed prints, and other photographic products.
