Plum Print, a startup focused on turning children’s artwork into prints, books and more, has landed $1 million in new financing.

“We are so pleased to announce that we’ve closed on our seed round of funding of one million dollars, with our lead investor, Charlie O’Donnell, of Brooklyn Bridge Ventures,” said co-founder Meg Ragland in the funding announcement Monday.

“With this close, we’ve hired on a former senior Google engineer, with start-up experience, as our Lead Developer,” added Carolyn Lanzetta, Plum Print’s other co-founder. “Things continue to fall into place as we get set to launch, in February, our Brand Ambassador program to influencer moms across the country,” Lanzetta continues. These sales moms will be field entrepreneurs, introducing Plum Print to local schools (both private and public), art museum shops, and boutique children’s stores.”

Brooklyn Bridge Ventures led the round of financing.

Several angel investors in the Asheville area and elsewhere also participated.

Asheville Angels, an investment group formed in 2014, provided $100,000 of the financing, according to the Asheville Citizen-Times.

Plum Print launched in 2012.

The company notes:

“The average child brings home 800 pieces of artwork by the end of the elementary school years, and the majority of parents have neither the time nor the expertise to preserve these precious memories. That’s where Plum Print steps in: After placing a small deposit, a Plum Parcel prepaid shipping kit arrives on the customer’s doorstep. Parents simply drop the artwork into the box and Plum Print takes care of the rest. Plum Print scans and/or photographs all types of artwork, edits each image and creates custom layouts for each coffee-table book. Parents approve the proof and the beautiful book is shipped to the family (with the original artwork if so desired). Plum Print will soon be adding online galleries and expanding product offerings to include note cards, canvases, calendars and other high quality products and keepsake merchandise.”
