How Long Do You Want To Keep It New?
Bought a new car recently? Check out the Keep it New brand new website, logo re-design and video commercial to advertise their newly offered dealership program for keeping driver’s new cars, ‘new’. Keep It New came to FPM3 to design and develop their new website as well as stationery items (Sales Sheet, Business Cards, etc.) with their eye on recording a brand new video commercial to promote their program. Their new website allows customers to learn about Keep It New’s core services and they can easily register through the Keep It New website form. Among all the services provided to Keep It New, we were especially happy with the commercial quality produced by our videographer expert Adrian Konstant. For more information about Keep It New services and to see the video commercial, please visit the their website at http://keepitnew.ca/
YouTube New Advertising Strategy
Have you heard about the YouTube paid channels coming up soon? On May 6th, YouTube, property of Google Company, announced they will launch a new feature allowing YouTube viewers to pay a monthly fee to subscribe to certain channels (i.e. The National Geographic Kids). The number of channels and countries where it will be available will be limited at first, but Google hopes to develop the idea and generate more revenue. And that is what this is all about: getting more revenue for YouTube but also for the company who uploaded the videos. Ever since advertising has been allowed on YouTube it has been a great source of revenue, but now it seems that it is not enough which is why paid channels could be the answer. Plus, you can choose whether or not you want to pay, so no one will ever be forced to pay if they want…
Skills Canada Event: The Green Screen Game!
FPM3 attended the Skills Canada event in Waterloo for OCAS from May 6th-7th. OCAS came to us with the idea of picturing high school students in a skilled trade and handing them a free picture with a QR code as a souvenir to remind them of how they’ll look working in their desired trade. FPM3 developed the picture-taking-qr-code-generating software for the event, with the ability to take a picture of someone in front of a green screen, remove the green screen, apply the image to a chosen background image, generate a QR code, slap it all together, and finish with a high resolution print, all under 2 minutes. We then use Adobe After Effects software to remove the green screen and re-size the picture before setting the background chosen (i.e. firefighter, police, paramedic, landscaper, fashion model, etc.). Finally, we send the picture to the printer. Since the pictures feature a custom generated…

We are also deeply convinced that it is important that each of us participate, with the time and the resources we have, in improving our community and make our city a better place to live in. More information regarding the upcoming cleanup, Facebook page, and website are about to come!

Happy Birthday FPM Marketing 2013
10 years ago today, was when I walked into the 1 room location, full of old washing machines, a snow blower and a leaky tap against the wall. It smelled like mold and had the 1970’s fake wood panel along the wall. I had a Kyocera 7135 (see attached phone) that had fax machine abilities and was my office in one. My G3 Laptop was the best at the time, and was the lifeblood of my email and web browsing experience. All this was Fingerprint Marketing & Design. I then had to change the name to FPM Marketing & Design due to a similar name law suit. I wasn’t happy about it, but lesson learned to hire better lawyers. The first client was Carmen’s Banquet Hall. I was developing their website. The second client was Saturn of Hamilton East. Both, approached me when they found out that I…
