Apple Industries_Magazine Me Covers

GREENVALE, NY -- New from Apple Industries is a free software enhancement for its popular Magazine Me photobooth. The release includes seven all-new parody magazine covers from its continually expanding graphics library. They are Auto Driver, Bride Monster, Nineteen, Pop Star, Princess, Super Hero and Wizard.

The new magazine covers have been purposely created to increase the Magazine Me's revenue by widening its appeal to a more youthful audience. "What we're finding," explained Apple's Mel LaForce, "is that by offering a wide selection of parody covers, and now increasing the number of youth-oriented covers, that the revenue is increasing."

Magazine Me is available in two cabinet styles. The larger Magazine Me is positioned for heavy-traffic locations like malls, bowling centers, roller rinks, resorts and FECs; it measures 36" deep by 70" wide by 83" high, and weighs 875 lbs. The smaller Magazine Me Mini incorporates the same hardware and software as the larger version in a scaled-down enclosure suitable for smaller locations like bars and restaurants. It is 28.5" wide by 37.5" deep, standing 76" high and weighing 450 lbs. Both vend 270 magazine covers per print stock roll; they're supplied with bill validators, and accommodate credit and debit card readers.

Not only does Apple periodically release free magazine cover upgrades from its library, but it also can design custom magazine covers for particular locations and clients. The company's art department recently produced a magazine cover for a major sports franchise. Call (516) 945-3650 for details.
