Orca Strong

Photo USA, headquartered in Fremont, California, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of sublimation products for the photo gifting industry. The company has entered into an agreement with Save The Whales of Seaside, California, an organization whose mission is to preserve and protect the oceans and its inhabitants, particularly the Orca whale.

Photo USA has developed a proprietary coating that preserves the photo image for years of use due to the powerful strength of the patented technology. The coating is called ORCA and represents the strength of the Orca whale.

Mr. James Peng, the CEO of Photo USA, has become very concerned with the Orca whale that is now on the endangered species list and will be donating to Save The Whales as well as giving a certain percentage of sales to help save the Orcas.

Mr. Peng stated, “When I created this special coating, which I named ORCA, it was because of the beauty and power of this amazing animal. As I witness the destruction of their habitat, I have decided to become a part of the solution by supporting Save the Whales, because together, We Are Orca Strong!
