Ivybridge, Uk (PressExposure) September 22, 2009 -- Clear2C have experienced a large increase in sales from all of its dedicated acrylic frames ranges as a result they believe of the credit crunch.
Steve Senior, MD of Clear2C explains: "There is no doubt in my mind that as people simply cannot afford to go out as much as they used to that there is a trend to spend money investing in the home itself. All our sales figures for our acrylic photo frames indicate significant growth but particularly amongst our Impression range of panoramic photo frames and multi aperture frames."
Steve goes on to say that: "Many of our business associates such as canvas printers also report sales increases. I think that in this digital age people are becoming much more keen and certainly prolific photographers at an amateur level. A hundred pounds will buy a digital camera capable of taking much near professional quality photos and people are keen to show off their efforts through framing. Contemporary photo frames provide a great way to do that."
2009 so far has seen a slight a reduction in digital camera sales, probably as people tightentheir belt given the credit crisis. Also it is likely the advancement of mobile phones with high resolution cameras has also affected sales. The past few years more generally though have seen a huge growth in digital camera sales backing up Steve Seniors view that interest in photography and home framing are growing. It is also likely that the growth of social media sites such as Facebook on which people can share photos online has also supported camera and wider photographic item (including photo frame) sales.
