The Easiest Photo Book You've Ever Made
We take more photos than ever before. In 2014 KPCB estimated that every day 1.8B photos are shared on Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp. However, our most meaningful photos still sit idle on our phones or in the cloud. These include photos of family, our kids, travel photos that we wish we had organized.
At the same time, with the introduction of the iPhone never before in history have print quality photos been so easy to capture. The $8B photo products industry is undergoing a shift from complex desktop solutions and in-store kiosks, to frictionless mobile apps.
Our flagship product is SimplePrints, the #1 mobile App for creating printed photo books. We recently launched Photo Magic, an SMS based concierge service targeted at busy Millennials.
We profitably generate $4-5M/year and 2/3 of customers have never purchased a photo book before. Our mission is to redefine the photo industry by making it effortless to create amazing things with your photos.
Our mission at Simple + Co is to build frictionless mobile-first experiences to help you create and send thoughtful gifts to loved ones. Our company has appeared in the New York Times, USA Today, Techcrunch, and our apps have been featured by Apple and recognized at SXSW. We are backed by 500 Startups, angel investors, and great advisors such as Dave Bagshaw (former CEO of Shutterfly), Gentry Underwood (founder of Mailbox) and Semyon Dukach (founder of SMTP).
We are currently focused on growing SimplePrints, the easiest way to create a photo book from your mobile phone. Over the past 12 months Simpleprints has grown to 1M users and generates over $4M in annual revenue.
Currently we have a team of 4 in Mountain View with an office in Vietnam.
