New digital technologies mean that a wider array of personalized products is available to the consumer via digital fulfillment. Qualex and its competitors have concentrated considerable effort to employ new technologies and provide leading edge products to web site and retail customers. As digital images become the photographic standard, there are more possibilities than ever for a consumer to express themselves with photographic products and displays. Driven by more powerful processing systems and affordable software, there is a convergence of technologies which utilize digital images. The printing, sign making, textile, engraving, photographic and entertainment industries all utilize digital images in new product offerings. The convergence of technologies is generating higher quality products and lower costs for both business and consumers. Products as diverse as full color etchings in granite, a 3D version of a Wii alter-ego, or a digitally woven wall hanging can be created and ordered from the comfort of the home or office by the consumer. This paper will highlight and describe a variety of these products and the technologies behind them.
