Summer in Paris

Paris by night? Paris by day? You are taking a thousand pictures of your vacation in Paris with your digital camera. Maybe you e-mail them back to your friends and family across the globe, or perhaps you review them every night in your hotel room. Why not print up a few and turn these vacation photos into postcards? Your own travel postcards from the top of the Eiffel Tower, looking out across Paris from Sacre Coeur, atop the Arc de Triomphe, or goofing around at a Parisian café. Instead of spending oodles on staid postcards, send your own!

It's simple: Send us your high-resolution image in .jpg format, or better, design it in a 10 x 15 cm Photoshop document, produce a PDF, add text (return address, cool graphic, your web site or e mail) and send it to LALANDE DIGITAL ART PRESS here in Paris. We will make as many cards as you like, in full-color and deliver them directly to your hotel room, or you can pick them up.

Send 50 cards to your business contacts, or organization. Make a project of it. You can even create a series of cards (we can produce 4 cards for the price of one – minimum order 500 cards). CLICK HERE: to print your Postcards from Paris and we can start right away!

Conference in Paris: English Language Printer

Chris Campbell, Channel Sales Manager – North America for dotMobi (mTLD Top Level Domain Ltd.) had a conference in Paris at the Le Méridien Montparnasse and wrote Lalande Digital Press Paris in a bit of a panic: "I'm in need of additional business cards... can you help me out?" Within an hour, around midnight, a PDF was produced and was printed. By the time Chris, who works out of Oregon, arrived at his hotel he was ready to network, his cards in hand. "It was outstanding! Thanks so much for the fast reply and quick, expert service. Fantastic to find an English language printer in Paris," he wrote.

Then, Kelly Hardy, a journalist who works with Marksmen, Inc. in Glendale, California, wrote us at 1 am on Saturday night. She, too, needed cards. We e mailed back and forth (she was staying at the Le Concorde Montparnasse, next to the conference center at the Meridien), and assembled the graphic elements, produced a PDF for her approval and by 2:30 am Saturday night she knew she'd be ready to roll by Monday morning. "You saved my life," she said. Not really, but unlike many service businesses in Paris, we really do not close. We're always open.

Heading to Paris for a conference? Why bother lugging 50 kilos of books, catalogs, banners and flyers? Send us your PDFs, we'll print your material here in Paris, and deliver it all to your hotel or conference center. All you have to do is open the boxes. The savings in air transport are considerable. Plus, we speak your language: Business.

Matussière : Fleurs et Nus

Bernard Matussière, photographe français, a crée une atmosphère smoky, sexy et inattendue avec une série, prise en 2000, dans laquelle Elodie, Rue Froidevaux (gauche), figure de manière dramatique. Bien sûr, en noir et blanc, spécialité de ce photographe qui a lancé 1000 accidents d'auto à Paris avec ses photos pour Aubade (lingerie) il y a quelques années.

Matussière fait partie de la 1ère Nuit de la Photographie Contemporaine, Place St Sulpice de 14h à Minuit, lundi le 23 juin. Son exposition, "Fleurs Et Nus, Une Exposition Epanouisante" a le soutien de Lalande Digital Art Press Paris. On a déjà travaillé avec Matussière auparavant(voir son profile sur nos pages) et pour l'évènement de la Nuit de la Photo, Lalande a crée une édition spéciale de cartes postales pour cet artiste qui regarde les fleurs et les femmes avec un œil atypique et étonnant.

Behind the Gare Saint-Lazare

Sometimes Lego outdigs Digital, as in this recreation of Henri Cartier-Bresson's classic "Behind the Gare Saint Lazare." Well, some Photoshop work was performed to remove the cotton suspending the figure and convert the image to black and white. The photographer is Mike Stimpson (Balakov). He's produced an entire set of classic photos using Legos that are worth seeing. (Click on the image, right, to see the flickr page with the full set, along with others).
