fotoflot header image

fotoflōt is an attractive alternative to traditional framing for digital images and art. Your images are floating just off the wall or desk and fotoflōt let's the viewer experience the rich color and details without glass, glare, mats, or frames.

The magnetic mounting system makes it easy to change photos in seconds and displaying without frames or glass lets your image speak for itself.

Decorating a home - An organic arrangement


Ross Peebles is an excellent photographer and long time fotoflōt customer who has put up several fotoflōt arrangements in his home. This one in particular caught our eye.

The arrangement seems to flow around the light switch and door. Its organic design creates a beautiful effect and demonstrates that not all arrangements have to be structured on a formal rectangular grid.


Decorating a photo studio



Carol Parker is a professional photographer located in Tucson, Arizona. She recently remodeled an old adobe home to use as her studio and workplace.

Carol told us she found to be "elegant and very user friendly". She wanted to have a display wall of photos and change the gallery periodically to feature different subjects without changing the overall layout.

Carol decided that fotoflot was ideal for her need. The result is a perfect venue to display her changing galleries of images.

Decorating a restaurant - As seen on TV



The popular Chicago WTTW PBS restaurant review show Check Please ! received a brand-new set for the 2010 season. Furniture and accessories from Crate & Barrel as well as many realistic props create the impression of a functioning restaurant when host Alpana Singh talks with three guests about their restaurant recommendations.

But something was missing only days from the start of taping of the new season: the appropriate wall-art a modern restaurant would have on display. Chicago based professional photographer Michael Roberts provided the perfect digital images, but they still had to be converted into impressive wall art pieces.

We helped out and created four gorgeous 30"x20" fotoflōts . Michael Roberts' images now float off of the studio wall and create a stunning display.

There are several installations of fotoflōts in restaurants similar to this one. More detail and additional images in the blog post.


Displaying customer logos



AtHoc is a leading provider of emergency notification systems to military, government and commercial organizations and serves many large organizations that need to be comfortable with their ability to deliver and maintain high-quality systems. Displaying the logos of current customers helps establish their credibility.

AtHoc had been printing the logos and slipping them into plexiglass holders mounted to a wall in the lobby area where they are visible to customers, visitors, technology partners and the press. They learned about fotoflōt and realized that it would enhance their credibility by displaying the logos in a more professional manner. They ordered all the logos on 10"x10" fotoflōts for a consistent look and mounted them in their lobby.

Once they had the logos up on the wall, they realized that fotoflōts provide another benefit: the magnetic mounting system makes it easy to rearrange the logos. Now they can change and reorder the logos in seconds to modify their appearance or tailor them to a particular visitor.


Hiding an eye sore




Kerry Ellis describes the problem she was trying to solve:

"I'm sure we all have those little (or not-so-little) eyesores in our home that we'd like to conceal somehow - in a not-too-obvious and kind'a pretty way. In my home, this is the circuit breaker box, which greets visitors to my home immediately after they walk in, nestled awkwardly between the main entrance and a bathroom door on a narrow strip of wall."

As you can see on the left, Kerry solved her problem with fotoflōts and a few extra magnets. She says:

"... my mother was simply floored by the idea when she visited my home during Christmas!

Let us know if you have situations, where fotoflōt panels need to be mounted on metallic surfaces. In many cases, a set of extra magnets is sufficient to hold the panels in place. Some of us have fotoflōts attached to refrigerator doors!


More ways to access your images


We have added two more ways to access your images via photo sharing services. As you probably know, we have been a print fulfillment option for Google's Picasa software for over a year, and Google's Picasa Web photo sharing users could access their online images from . A few months ago we also became a print fulfillment option for Picasa Web users. This means that Picasa Web users can select a "basket" of images from their gallery, then click on a link that will transfer them and their basket of images to , ready to place an order.

We recently launched a similar relationship with ACD Systems. They provide ACDSee software - photo editing, photo management and illustration applications for amateurs, professional photographers and businesses. There are over 25 million users of ACDSee software worldwide. They have just launched ACDSee Online, a photo sharing service for use by their software customers. fotoflōt is live as their first print fulfillment partner and similar to Picasa Web, a customer selects a basket of images, then transfers to via a link.

If you use a photo sharing service that we don't support and would like to see a simplified fotoflōt interface to that service, let us know. We can't promise that we can add it, but we'll certainly take a look.
