An Unexpected Gift of Literature
The Short Story Dispenser offers intellectual breaks to enchant customers, travelers, visitors, patients... while enabling businesses with lengthy wait times to enhance their customer experience. Or perhaps you want to entice them to stay longer to enjoy your customer journey by adding something different, innovative and memorable.
That little something different to add to the journey which gives you a competitive advantage, along with trackable usage data for your management, to prove the engagement you’ve created.
Put a Dispenser where people gather in your business, surprise them with fiction on the fly and show appreciation for their visit, so they leave with a smile. With the gift of a short story or poem, you are inviting them back and they will associate your environment with a memorable moment. Plus, what a cool souvenir to take home and share with friends or family...
A Literary Lift
With the engagement created around the Short Story Dispenser, you can improve your customer relationship by transforming the low points of their experience — having to wait, feeling ignored, impatience, etc. — into highlights: surprise, smiles, a great read.
Literature stirs complex emotions, inspires creative thinking, and helps with anxiety. Short Édition allows you to create an emotional link between your brand and your customers, by offering a bit of fiction, an unplugged experience to be lived in that very moment, at home or elsewhere - to be savored alone or shared with others.

An Asset to the Canary Wharf Experience
We knew the Dispensers would be received well but could not have dreamed just how popular they would be. Within their first year, our three Short Story Dispensers printed over 100,000 stories. We received hundreds of pieces of press coverage as well as positive feedback from the public. Our Short Story Dispensers have been an undeniable asset to Canary Wharf.

International spotlight on local authors
From the airport's perspective, what we want to reflect is the community through the terminal building. So when Jason(1) called us and told us how we can reflect our literary culture here from Edmonton, we were really enthusiastic about it.
"International travelers describe it as the topping on the dessert that was their trip here in Edmonton. It was like this final souvenir that they can take home."
