Robert Ruscoe, Lalande's master printer, is an accomplished photographer as well as a digital wizard. While in Venice he produced a gorgeous portfolio of Venetian doorways, buildings and architectural details. His photograph, TIPOGRAFIA, is close to Robert's heart, being a type maniac and the kind of person who lusts after elegant decay, a specialty of Venice and its façades. Immediately, I wanted to use it as a promotional post card, and also to offer it as a signed, limited edition print. Robert is planning on producing it in an enormous semi-transparent adhesive print for the façade of our studio on Rue Labrouste in the 15th arrondisement.

We've decided to offer TIPOGRAFIA a limited and signed edition of 21. The full-color print measures 65 x 55 cm, and is produced on the Epson 9800, using 100 per cent cotton, acid-free Arches paper, 240 gram weight. The price is modest: Only 75 euros. Contact me to reserve your signed, limited edition print and arrange delivery in France – or anywhere in the world. It's a great work of art for yourself, or a gift for someone who loves Venice and its fantastic façades.

For new clients, we're offering a time-limited promotion: Through the end of July, if you order 500 Full color postcards (10 x 15 cm) with black text on the back, we'll print up 100 cartes de visites (business cards) for you with whatever image you like. The postcards are 99 euros HT. For your business card, you can use a picture of yourself as a kid and your e mail, your company logo, or anything else you like. Make one for a friend as a gift. We'll need images sized to a standard business card – 9 x 5 cm. Send us a good color image, saved as a .jpg or better, a PDF, set to CMYK.

Actually, you can make other things with us – books, brochures, posters, catalogs, large prints – and we'll produce the business cards free for you as well. This offer extends until the end of July.

Like Robert's TIPOGRAFIA, if you take a great picture, you can produced limited edition prints, or post cards, or business cards, make them known, put them in the world, and become famous.
