Some business models work with only a single type of business, while others appear to be universal. Advertiser-based products and services seems to be one of those more universal business models. It has been successful across print, radio, television, and web. It powered the initial success of companies like Vistaprint.
Taking on this business model is Printoo, a Mexican company that is providing digital photo printing at no charge to consumers. In exchange for the free printing, the photos are printed with advertisements on the back. This is similar to Vistaprint's free business card promotion from years past, except the ads won't be for Printoo's services themselves, but instead for partner businesses. Included in those advertisers is fellow Collision attendee Bebe2go.
Printoo is available to addresses in Mexico for free now.

Trey was born into a tech career. Instead of going to summer camp as a child, Trey spent summers working at the local news station with his father, an Emmy award winning news director. He honed his audio skills singing in a band, and later worked as a lighting and audio technician for a theme park. Within two years he became the lead technician for the entire park, which included a fully operational CNN sponsored TV station, a full theater and a circus. Later, he became the lead lighting and audio tech for one of the Ringling Bros. circuses, with a stint as a clown for the pure joy of performing. It was at Ringling that he met his wife, who he calls the most beautiful, loving, and funny person he has ever met, and who is also the creator of the 3000 Brigade. Trey was a performer with the 3000 Brigade for nine shows, as well as hosting the 3000 Brigade Podcast, while still doing media on the side. Trey currently edits and cleans audio for PLuGHiTz shows and has also been a special events host.
