Limited edition RetroPak released for this weekend only!
For those that missed out on any of the limited edition HipstaPaks in the past, here is your chance to get the gear before it is gone for good!
Press release from Hipstamatic:
Why Does Hipstamatic Have Limited-edition Digital Products?
The most emailed, facebooked, tweeted, get satisfaction question is by far dealing with our “Limited Edition” HipstaPaks. To date we’ve had both Paid and Free HipstaPaks. The first of these was a partnership with the reopening of the Dali Museum. Together with all of your support we were able to raise nearly $50,000 for the museum. Then over the holidays we celebrated with Levi’s and raised over $15,000 that went to Kids with Cameras & The 5 Boroughs Foundation of Photography. This past Spring we partnered with SXSW to bring you the Tejas lens.
Making these products only available for a limited amount of time allows us to partner with some really great projects and brands. That said, communicating that these HipstaPaks were only available for a limited amount of time has always been a challenge. Until recently you’ve only known about the limited edition paks if you followed us on Facebook or Twitter, or you regularly visit the HipstaMart section of Hipstamatic. With the last update we added Push Notifications to communicate directly with the community, which we used for the first time last week to announce our partnership with Nike Sportswear.
Because so many people missed out on the limited edition paks from the past, and because we didn’t do a good job of telling people, we are going to offer the select HipstaGear in a special RetroPak. The first and likely only RetroWeekend is coming up later this week.
Starting this Friday, June 10 @ 10a PT and running through Midnight PT on Sunday night, there will be a special HipstaPak available in the HipstaMart section of Hipstamatic. We will send out a Push to all users that have enabled Hipstamatic to send (Settings>Notifications, to adjust) when the HipstaPak is available.
We hope to do a better job of communicating with everyone in the future. Including customer support and troubleshooting, we’ve added a new member to our team dedicated to just that, promise to introduce him soon
In addition to Retro Weekend, we have some really great updates coming out in the near future, can’t wait to get them out to everyone.
