    Rewards Program, I am, I am.

    I think this product is really unique. Every year I give photo gifts and this being the 8th year doing so, it is looked forward to and I ran out of ideas ... you saved me. Everyone is getting a viewmaster & reel this year. And in future years I will give ever family a reel only to keep costs down. I do take photos all year.

    We're using ours for a performance project called THE BRAIN PIECE, which will be performed June 28-July 1, an immersive dance/film/theater piece at New York Live Arts. The viewfinders will be used for for a section called "Carnival of the Mind." I had fun creating these unique props. Check out the live show!!

    I gave the viewer to a friend who is leaving the country for a new job. I used some of her photos on facebFacebook of friends and family. This was perfect because it wouldn't take up a lot of room in her suitcases. She thought it was one of the coolest gifts she had ever received and took it to her going away party to show her family. It was a hit!

    I got this for my husband for our anniversary. He LOVED it! He said it was just like the one he had as a child. He even the took it to his work to show it off!

    I intended to get this for my husband for Fathers Day. I created a reel starting with the first pic he was seen holding our son in the hospital up thru the years. I LOVED the fact that I could title each picture and customize it. When I received it I as so blown away and since I always try to give meaningful thought out gifts that provoke tears of emotion or joy.... I gave this to him a month early on his birthday! Now, I am looking for a fathers day gift. HAHA Our anniversary is coming up so I am going to place an order for a new reel for our special occasion. The quality was excellent. There was not a short corner taken anywhere and I have raved about this idea to my family and friends. This would be PERFECT for any company especially for a Year End Review to investors or for a product launch. I am no longer in marketing but wish I was after having purchase a reel viewer and reel. LOVE IT!

    My neice lives on the other side of the world to me. I am in Australia and she is in Denmark. So for christmas I decided to create a retroviewer for her using the photographs of her first trip to Australia. I hope this is something she can keep forever with memories of patting a kangaroo, swimming in the Indian Ocean and enjoying the Aussie sun with her uncles.

    I purchased this at the gift shop at Devils Tower for my husband. We had recently returned from a 30th anniversary trip to Hawaii. I quickly made a reel of my favorite Hawaii pictures for him. They love looking st t at his office. I’ve made reels for Christmas from a few of our family trips. Each trip a different reel - starting with OLDEST pictures. I love that you can put a photo on the front of the reel as a tag. I missed that on the first reel

    I have been an Image3d customer for 7 years now. I purchased my first viewer and reel for my boyfriend for our first Christmas together. It was a reel of photos of us on our adventures over the last year. Since then I have gotten him a new reel every Valentine’s Day. Today is Valentine’s Day and I gave him our 7th reel. It is a cool alternative to photo albums. It will be a nifty thing to share with our future children.

    I can't thank RetroViewer enough for both the AMAZING customer service experience and the fantastic gift my reels & viewer made! I discovered RetroViewer only a week before my 10th wedding anniversary. I had been struggling for a gift idea for my husband. I wanted something that had sentimental value, but knew a photo album wouldn't have the WOW factor I was looking for and would end up collecting dust. When I came across RetroViewer, I knew it was the perfect gift, but time was short! I contacted RetroViewer's customer service to find out about expediting my order and was so touched when they worked with me to make sure my order came through, went to print, and was even shipped out before a snow storm they were expecting. Talk about a WOW factor-Hands down, this was the best customer service I've experienced in a long time! When the Reel Viewer arrived, it was absolutely perfect. Ten years of memories preserved in such a unique and special way. My husband was floored by the gift and we've had so much fun showing it to our kids, family & friends. I cannot say enough good things about this company and the special, unique, and quality product they are producing. I highly recommend gifting a ReelViewer to someone in your life!
