“Prynt has gone from being an idea we wanted to bring to the Kickstarter community, to hitting more than $1.5 million. Prynt is becoming a reality and it’s all thanks to our amazing backers. If this what we can achieve by March, imagine what we can achieve through the rest of the year.„ CEO Clément Perrot
