The final papers are in and the caps are on— it's graduation day. Cameras are flashing and photos are posting to social media accounts in real time. Those graduation snaps fade into the oblivion of your friends’ feeds pretty quickly. Commemorate the occasion and give friends & family a fun and simple way to save those photos forever by bringing hashtag printing to your graduation ceremony. Merely tag the designated Instagram or Twitter handle (say, your university’s official account) or choose an event hashtag to have all tagged photos instantly printed and ready for attendees to pick up on their way out the door. Photoboxx turns every single one of those Instagram shots into tangible memories—ones that can be saved in a way that’s slightly more special than your random tagged photos from 2012.
Utah public university, Weber State University recently held their winter Commencement Ceremony over the holidays. The purple & black clad wildcat students walked across the stage to commemorate their big accomplishment with friends & family there to support them. Weber State had great success with hashtag printing throughout the course of the ceremony. Grads, friends and families tagged their photos to #webergrad to receive free printouts of their Instagram and Twitter posts. Check out the Socialdrip analytics from the event below:
By the end of the ceremony, Weber State grads and guests walked away with prints that will constantly remind them of the real-time moments the professional photographer maybe didn’t capture: like the selfie with friends right before you walk on stage, or the photo with family members in the nose bleed seats with their oversized signs and blow horns. Those are the real memories they’ll cherish forever.
