Digital Announcement from Creative Memoreis

I am so happy to announce that Creative Memories has announced a transition for all of the StoryBook Creator and Memory Manager users out here in cyberland.

Creatie Memories has reached an agreement with Panstoria (the creators of Memory Manager and StoryBook Creator) which has been put before the Court.
Here are the highlights:
  • Both Memory Manager and StoryBook Creator software will continue uninterrupted. Software can be activated through December 31, 2013, and Panstoria will continue to provide software updates as needed. This means that software purchases made that haven’t shipped can be activated without any trouble, even if they ship beyond September 23.
  • Memory Manager and StoryBook Creator users will be contacted by Panstoria, and will be given access to printing and other features through Panstoria. The plan and timing for printing has not yet been finalized, but will be forthcoming. Please look for Panstoria news and updates in the Memory Manager and StoryBook Creator news feeds (right side of the main page).
  • Any Creative Memories digital artwork you’ve purchased can be activated (without an end date) on any computer.
  • Anyone who’s made an investment of time or money in software, projects or artwork can continue to use them uninterrupted.
It’s important to note that the agreement is subject to Court approval, so it is not yet final. But because the motion is being filed today, they wanted to ensure that we had the information today. Creative Memories anticipates a decision from the Court the week of September 23.
Also important to note: there are additional conversations happening between Panstoria, Creative Memories and a third interested firm. If that negotiation is successful, it will supersede this agreement between CM and Panstoria, but it will only improve on the above.
As a reminder, the last day to order Creative Memories digital products is Sept. 23. Any unexpired Product Credits, Print Plans, StoryBook coupon codes and/or Host Rewards coupon codes can be used on the Digital Center through that date. They are pleased that customers and Consultants can continue to use the digital software they've come to love.
Creative Memories understands waiting on this news has been a challenge. Please know Creative Memories is very grateful for your patience and will continue to keep you updated on all additional developments.
