Turning your beautiful photos into beautiful prints is likely to become much easier, now that Visual Supply Company (VSCO) has acquired Artifact Uprising.
VSCO is, of course, the company behind the popular VSCO Camphoto capturing, editing and sharing app. As for Artifact Uprising, its a startup that specializes in creating tangible products out of photos, including prints, cards, calendars, and photography books.
The acquisition, whose price is yet undisclosed, is announced by VSCO in a new blog post:
Over the past two years, VSCO and Artifact Uprising have collaborated on various book projects, cultivating a friendship and mutual vision for redefining how people create, discover, and connect. The decision to join forces was natural, even obvious.
Artifact Uprising has also announced the move in its own blog post, noting that:
Artifact Uprising as you know it today is not going anywhere. Decidedly, we will welcome new peers and potentialbut the same purpose, people and passion will continue driving the work behind the scenes.
In all likelihood, VSCO will integrate Artifact Uprisings service into its network to allow its users to easily create real-world versions of their photos right from its website and app.
