ScanAR - Augmented Reality for Print Advertising

Make your ads come to life and increase advertising sales revenues!

Increase engagement, get more sales and more revenue for you and your customers.

Add value to your customers print ads, with augmented reality video overlaid on YOUR newspaper (as seen in Harry Potter!)

Print advertising hasn't changed since print began. 

However, since the rise of the internet, advertising in newspapers can be seen as old-fashioned or boring - especially among the younger readers. Keeping them engaged is challenging.

Not any more!

ScanAR is an augmented reality (AR) app for Android and iPhone that lets your readers see video and other content attached to your print ads or articles.

The reader simply installs the app, and points the camera to an ad in your paper, and the print ad comes alive as a video is magically overlaid!

The app allows the reader to press a button and be taken to your advertisers website for more information.

ScanAR makes print advertising engaging, fun, informative and profitable.
