Epson Valentine’s Day Contest Asks Mobile Lovebirds, “What Would You Do?”

“Be Here, Print There” Remote Romeo Contest Takes on Love in the Smartphone Era by Rewarding Clever Relationship Advice with Epson Connect-enabled Printers

LONG BEACH, Calif. – Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — A thoughtful printed photo sent to a significant other can help express love in a personal way. Now that smartphone and tablet users can easily print remotely to Epson Connect-enabled models, they can share heart-felt images or special moments from across the globe; just be careful to send the right sentiment to the right person. Such a mistaken moment is at the heart of the Epson® “Be Here, Print There” Remote Romeo Contest1, which reminds mobile users to love and print responsibly.

Epson invites eligible participants to watch the short Remote Romeo video and tweet Angela’s response to philandering boyfriend’s (“Romeo’s”) attempt to reconcile. G-rated Twitter responses using the hash tag #EpsonConnect starting on Feb. 1 through Valentine’s Day are eligible to win. An Epson panel of judges will select 10 winners based on the creativity, originality and relevancy of responses to receive an Epson® Expression® Premium XP-600 Small-in-One®.

“Flowers and chocolate are so old school. Today’s mobile users are looking for new, real-time ways to share and show their affection, and printed photos are a perfect way to express their love from anywhere,” said Jeff Muto, product development manager, Epson America, Inc. “Our relationship-based contest has some fun with this idea, and is a terrific stage for showcasing the ease and impact of printing remotely.”

Official rules for the contest are available online at epson.com/Romeo.
