Even busy GM executives have time for a flipbook!


USA Today reported that two top General Motors executives stopped by the Chevy flipbook booth at the New York Auto Show (well, not exactly, they said we were a photo booth, but I’ll take it!).  I like this article because it talks about how busy and serious most top executives are, but that they took a moment to enjoy making a light-hearted photo together inside the Greenbrier photo booth.

This really makes my day.  I love that PicFlips flip books can make an intrigued child or a bustling business man both smile at the simple yet clever animation.  And it took less than 90 seconds to receive a finished flip book, so the executives were back on track to unveil the next new vehicle within minutes!  Check out the article for yourself:


Coming Full Circle at the Auto Show


I just love it when things come full circle.  You know, like when I defiantly stated as a tween that I would NEVER drive a minivan like my mom did …and now we have 3 (they are for the business, I say!).   Well, something much cooler has come full circle lately.  Before we were even married and before PicFlips was even a twinkle in our eyes, Shawn and I used to tour the country with the Auto Show circuit.  We worked as Product Specialists, answering questions about the vehicles for attendees.  I gotta admit, my favorite part of the job was whipping out the specs from memory for the compression ratio or torque or something obscure that the gearheads would never expect me to know.

So, fast forward to today, and you can find us back at Auto Shows, but in a new capacity.  We have perfected PicFlips to be the ideal giveaway and experience for events.  Check out Kathryn Larson, a reporter from CBS Detroit, and the fun she is having at the Detroit Auto Show.
