Two years in development – perforated 6×8 tear and share media is now available exclusively from Imaging Spectrum for your DNP DS40, DS620, DSRX1 or Brava 21 photo printers.

What is Tear and Share?

Imagine a 6×8 print with two vertical perforations. Simply fold along the perforation and the media pulls apart to create 3 beautiful 2×8 photo strips. The 2×8 strip is 33% bigger than a 2×6, is more old school photo booth traditional, provides more real estate for logos, text or marketing messages and just looks very cool. We love how the 4 up looks – classy! 3 strips create new options like keeping one strip for the bride or memory book or creating a tear off coupon for a retail activation or a big marketing message for a corporate activation.

What is the cost difference?

The 6×8 tear and share media is $0.30 per print vs. $0.14 for a 4×6 for the DS40 and $0.36 per print vs. $0.16 for the Brava 21. While it’s a little more expensive it is a great opportunity to up-sell your clients with something new that they haven’t seen before.

How do you design for a 2×8 photo strip?

The beauty of the design is that you are simply printing a 6×8 (that happens to have two perforations). With Darkroom Booth, Core or Pro software it is easy to design a 6×8 print template that will result in 3 2×8 strips. We are offering a few free, easily customized templates to get you started that will work in any Darkroom Software product.

We also have a selection of themed 6×8 print templates available at Darkroom Templates.
