Print.com is a mobile app and website that is designed to work with smartphones (iOS and Android), tablets (iOS Android and Windows) and PC’s. It enables users to print effortlessly to their own printer devices or to a network of printers both at retail establishments and to exclusive Print.com affiliates. In addition to giving a user the ability to print (and expand the printing capability) all print jobs will be stored to a cloud service with features that allow access to documents and presentations not seen before (patent pending on abilities to embed QR codes in paper docs to access electronic versions). The market for printing from mobile devices is strong and growing with the introduction of these devices in recent years (since this market is relatively new, numbers are scarce however we believe the market is on the order of hundreds of millions of dollars). The displacement of PC’s has created a hole not filled by the traditional players in this space. Today HP’s e-Print and Apple’s AirXXX have not solved major problems in printing from mobile devices. We believe it will take an independent player to make the most of the opportunity to bridge devices printers (of all brands) and location-based printing services. In addition no one has explored connecting printing to cloud services only recently available. We expect Print.com to monetize the opportunity through various channels including revenue sharing with retail and partner printers premium versions of the app and other minor advertising and specialization channels. We have had discussions with enterprises thinking of converting to tablets but lacking the printing capabilities necessary by their business. Moreover a general consumer app will be made available on the Apple App Store and Android Marketplace.
