Panstoria, Inc.

An Important message from Forever

November 18th, 2015
We are eager to announce a new chapter in the memory keeping and scrapbooking industry. Forever, Inc acquired Panstoria, Inc. in 2014, and over the last year, our teams have been actively working to integrate our products and services into a full memory management platform. You are familiar with our scrapbooking and media management tools, Forever Artisan® and HistorianTM. But Forever also brings permanent cloud storage, great web and mobile apps and media conversion services to the memory management mix. Over the course of the next two months, we will take the final steps towards developing and launching our new one-stop-shop for digitizing, editing, printing, permanently saving, and sharing family photos.

What does this mean for you?

As we offer a variety of software and services at different price points, we have re-evaluated our commission structure and have decided that we must lower the commission rate from 25% to 10% for the Share-A-Sale channel. This change will take effect on December 7, 2015.
We are releasing our new single Forever storefront this month. The new store will offer our full memory keeping line of software, products, and services. We will continue to support into the early part of 2016. More to come on specific dates regarding our full transition to

About Us
Panstoria is the creator of the premiere digital scrapbooking application, Artisan 4.0, and the Historian 4.0 photo management and editing software. Our mission is to help you tell the stories of your life through the preservation, organization, and sharing of your photos and other digital memories. We make our software easy to use so you can focus on your story. Life is full of stories. Tell yours®.

Artisan 4.0 is a desktop digital scrapbooking application for Windows. From beginners to the tech savvy, Artisan gives you everything you need to creatively tell your story. Powerful tools in an easy-to-use interface allow you to explore the features and learn at your own pace. You'll find all the tools and content you’d expect in an award-winning digital scrapbooking application: image filters, text tools, a calendar creator, frames, a full-featured image editor, decorative cutters, and more. You can even create your own papers and embellishments to use later. Even better, you don't need an internet connection because Artisan lives on your desktop.

The license for Artisan also allows the user to install the software on both a desktop and laptop for convenient use while away from home or office.

Historian 4.0 is a photo management and editing application for Windows. Historian includes a powerful photo editor that includes features like cloning and the ability to apply a wide range of image filters to the entire photo or just a selected region. But the most powerful feature of Historian is its patented vault technology. Historian keeps all of the user's photos and stories in one place, making it easy to backup or move to a new computer. No more losing photos or forgetting where an important photo is stored on your computer. Historian's powerful search features let the user find and display photos in the vault based on dates, tags, text in the story, and so on. And the facial recognition feature makes it easy to categorize the photos. And because Panstoria is dedicated to memory preservation, Historian always stores the original photo in the vault. Changes are saved to additional revisions of the photo in the vault.

The Historian software is completely compatible with vaults created using software created by Panstoria but sold under private label by other companies. Existing vaults can be opened in Historian with no loss of information.

While both applications are written to run on Microsoft Windows, both applications will run just fine on a Mac under software such as VMWare Fusion or Parallels.
