Brand story of PhotoFast
PhotoFast established in 2003, starting with online photo printing service. It is now the largest online photo printing service in Taiwan. With 4,000+ pickup points and add-value online services, it allows customers to make purchases and receive their product in a short time. The brand name, PhotoFast, indicating specialty and speed, represents it as being a fast photo printer and creator. When the digital camera first came out on the market, it made a huge, global impact on the photo printing industry. With this historical industry failing, PhotoFast realized the importance of being innovative. Even though the online printing business is still growing because of photos going digital, the founder of PhotoFast decided the company must constantly innovate and make correct decisions in an instant when it comes to adjusting to the trends of the industry. “Fast Innovation” has become the corporate culture and spirit.
PhotoFast started to restructure the services offered to consumer electronics in 2004. In dedicating our products with innovation, uniqueness, easy use, premium quality, and trend forecasting, PhotoFast constantly develops better services and solutions for its customers. With ten years of experience, PhotoFast’s exquisite products are selling over 50 countries, 17 airlines worldwide. Even NASA put in a product inquiry for astronauts to use in space.
PhotoFast is now a premium Smart Accessory brand that focuses on design, innovation, premium quality, and functionality. The team is full of creative talents who are passionate in delivering the best solutions for their customers. By standing at the user’s perspective, PhotoFast continues to provide the best solutions to the challenges of this digital age.
