ookpix.com (ookpix) is Canada's first dedicated online photobook service, allowing users to quickly and seamlessly turn their digital photos into treasured mementos including photobooks, wall art and calendars.

With an intuitive and well-designed website, "ooksters" can create unique printed products that showcase the memories that are meant to be shared.

"There was once a time where everyone shared their stories proudly through photo albums. Since the rise of digital photos, online technology became the platform to showcase life experiences," says Tim Flaman, vice president of ookpix. "Without books, photo sharing became isolated to computer screens. ookpix is bringing the beauty and art of storytelling back."

Operated, manufactured and shipped in Canada, ookpix offers ease for "ooksters" by including free shipping with each order. "By creating and shipping our products in Canada, our customers don't have to worry about surprise shipping or customs fees," continues Flaman, "We focus on creating hand-crafted, personalized ways to preserve and share family memories, life moments and special occasions."

ookpix offers a variety of photo books, from books in a jiffy (for instagram photos) to sophisticated wedding albums, wall art on canvas or acrylic, and calendars. They also serve the business market by creating portfolios, annual reports and proposals in book form and solutions for schools with a yearbook creation platform.

The name "ookpix" is derived from the popular Canadian "ookpik" handicraft. The emblem for ookpix is "ookie" who adds a Canadian presence to the website and guides users through the simple book making process.
