DigitalPost Interactive's Online Photo Store Now Live and Out of Beta

Consumers Now Able to Order Kodak Prints, T-Shirts and More Directly From Company's Family Websites

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - January 8, 2008) - DigitalPost Interactive (OTCBB: DGLP) (www.dglp.com), a provider of user-friendly Web platforms for digital media sharing and social networking (Web 2.0), announced today that its "Family Photo Store" is now live, and out of beta. The new photo store enables consumers to purchase high-quality Kodak prints, T-shirts, mugs, and other custom merchandise directly from their family websites, currently available through the company's flagship web property www.TheFamilyPost.com and private label partner sites. It also provides DigitalPost Interactive and its B2B customers with a powerful new solution for tapping into the growing custom photographic products market, which Photofinishing News estimated at nearly $1 billion in the U.S. last year alone.

"Families have been asking for a simple way to transform their digital media into high-quality prints or other products without going to a third-party source like a drugstore or photo store with their digital files," said Michael Sawtell, CEO, DigitalPost Interactive. "Customers really love the convenience of shopping from home, and a substantial number of families tapped into the Photo Store this holiday season for customized photo gifts. We're happy to add this dynamic new retail solution to our platform, and look forward to continue delivering exceptional products that create value for our customers and partners alike."

Originally launched in beta with TheFamilyPost.com in October 2007, the Family Photo Store is one of several all-new components recently added to the company's user-friendly media-sharing platform. Known for its ease-of-use, engaging functionality, and visually compelling displays, the digital media-sharing platform empowers consumers to create their own, personalized family websites where they can communicate with family and friends, keep organized, and showcase a lifetime of digital media and memories in style.

"The Family Photo Store significantly strengthens the value proposition of our digital media-sharing platform," said Alex Chacon, VP, Product Development. "It gives us a powerful e-commerce solution that's extremely appealing to B2B clients who are looking for new ways to service their customers, and families who have come to depend on our family websites for simplicity and convenience. We are extremely pleased to work with Kodak's Qualex division on this exciting new effort."
