India, like myriad parts of the globe, possesses a strong visually driven culture. Irrespective of the geographic location of the country Indians love pomp and pageantry, from their attire, to the food and festivals there’s colour, energy and a story waiting to be told – the perfect elements for a photo.
Photos make for great conversations. That’s when the idea struck a group of us trigger happy geeks (and purveyors of cutting edge tech) for an online photo service – enabling conversations around engaging, high quality photo merchandise. There’s something to be said about sifting through a set of photo prints or leafing through someone’s story in photos, in the form of a photobook. Ethereal yet tangible, connecting you to a stream of emotions no matter how many times you handle the same set of photos or photobook.
The process of capturing moments of magic, sharing them, celebrating them has come a long, long way. It has evolved in terms of devices, services, products and even user demographics. No longer for the early-adopters, or a privileged few. It’s now Mom, Dad, Grandma, school kids… the only distinguishing factor being their device of choice but the deep emotional need to capture a moment, an urge to share that moment and a wish to store it for posterity is what binds us all.
With our website and our apps we want you to have the best online experience possible when it comes to your photos. A few guiding principals that have helped us along our journey (and quest for world domination… kidding!)
Fanatical Customer Service: No limits on free storage, no need to make purchases to continue to store photos. Import your best moments from Facebook, Flickr, Instagram or Picasa, or export to Flickr and Picasa – it’s your moments do as you will. Not happy with order – we’ll print it all over again, we want to put the biggest, brightest smile on your face!
Keep It Simple: Grandma should put you to shame creating gorgeous Photobooks, family Desktop or Wallmount Calendars or breathtaking Canvas Print – discovering and designing photo memorabilia on ZoomIn has to be that simple.
No outsourcing: We have a completely vertically integrated infrastructure – invested in a state-of-the-art Print & Production Center so that no matter which corner of the globe (or universe) you order from, the quality must blow you away.
Super Fast Delivery: We deliver to any location anywhere in the world. If it has a postal code it will be delivered.
Good & Honest Business: No scamming or scheming. We sell products of the best quality and the fairest prices.
So here we are in Mumbai (formerly Bombay), Bollywood capital and as some stories are told on celluloid, a bunch of us are helping you craft your story in photos, with a lot of love and determination.
