Dwayne and Gloria Erickson, owners of Eagle Express Mailing and Business Services in Harker Heights and Belton, have announced the arrival of a FotoZoomer to produce full-color images from 4-by-6 inches to poster and banner size from pictures stored on DVDs, CDs or standard digital cameras.
Customers can touch a screen to load images and select for enhanced quality, brightness, color depth and contrast. They can also select details of the image, add up to eight lines of text and select fonts, sizes, color and positions, and select from a library of templates. Available media include standard photo stock, canvas and sign material including posterboard.
The selection prints in less than 30 minutes.
Dwayne opened Eagle Express Mailing and Business Services at 108 E. Farm Road 2410 in Heights nine years ago after a 27-year career with Kmart. Seven years later, Gloria opened Eagle Express Mailing Center in Grothway Square in Belton.
Among other services, they offer shipping by DHL, UPS or FedEx and supply business cards, copy and fax services, greeting cards, notary services, office supplies, passport photos, postage stamps and self-inking stamps and accept utility payments. They offer packing services or do-it-yourself packing supplies.
"We've been married for 31 years and lived and worked in this area for 28 years," Gloria said. Originally from North Dakota, they transferred to Temple in 1979 with Kmart. They are active in the Killeen-Heights Rotary Club, the Harker Heights, Belton and Greater Killeen chambers of commerce and Immanuel Lutheran Church in Killeen. They have an extensive family in the area.
They accept old cell phones for recycling with proceeds going to Families in Crisis, Juvenile Diabetes and Habitat for Humanity. They belong to the Alliance of Foam Packaging Recyclers and accept packing peanuts in good condition.
Photos or designs for the FotoZoomer also can be e-mailed to email@example.com. Customers can come into the store and produce a print from the store's computer.
"We're pleased that this service arrived in time for graduation," Gloria said.
