Show the exact size of your nursery plants on a picture with FotoCCar

You’ve grown plants and ornamentals this year and now it’s time to sell them. As a national or international supplier, not every customer can visit your nursery to admire your plants. You need good pictures to send to your customers and to put on your website. But how can you make it visible on a picture how big the plant exactly is? Pierre Demesmaeker has invented a solution to this problem.

As he is a grower and owns a garden centre himself, Pierre experienced some difficulties with selling his plants digitally. “When I grew a nice plant and wanted to sell it, I didn’t know how to show the right proportions on the picture. That’s why I came up with the FotoCCar.”

The FotoCCar is actually a set consisting of an aluminium screen with a vertical ruler and a removable horizontal ruler. The screen can be applied to every CC car, of course that’s where the name FotoCCar comes from. Just put the plant on the CC car in front of the vertical ruler and it shows directly how large the plant is. When you hang the horizontal ruler on the edge of the car, customers can see how wide the plant is. Together with this standard set, you can also order a sign with your company name and logo, to personalize the pictures. The FotoCCar is available in both centimetres and inches, in different colours and is 100% recyclable.

This is the first year that the FotoCCar is in production and it already gained international popularity. “Last week we sent a FotoCCar to a customer in New Zealand and we’ve also sent some to Dubai and Australia. But our main market lies in the Netherlands,” says the grower from Belgium. In his own country the FotoCCar isn’t so popular. “Belgians are just making do with what they have. They just put the plant in front of a white door and make a picture. People abroad are looking to improve more, facilitate and professionalize their operations.”

The FotoCCar is available in different sizes, from 100 to 200 cm. Click here for the brochure with the different types, prices and accessoires (PDF).
