Austin's New Era Portfolio Powers New Getty Photos.com Service
Image and photography clearinghouse Getty Images launched a big, new consumer effort Wednesday called Photos.com, which offers up a big collection of iconic photos to consumers as framed prints, canvas, and metal prints--all thanks to an Austin company, New Era Portfolio. Getty said it will offer select photos from its big collection for printing onto canvas, paper, aluminum, and other surfaces, as gallery wraps, framed prints, and framed canvas--all thanks to Austin's New Era Portfolio, which specializes in turning photos into fine, gallery-quality framed art. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed, however, Getty said that New Era Portfolio will handle all of the printing and fulfillment of art from its new Photos.com site. New Era Portfolio was founded by Mitch Bader and Nick Nichols, and has a big, 62,000 square foot printing facility in Austin.
