Memories of New York

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As I was telling you last weekend, I was supposed to go to New York at the beginning of the month. It was a work trip, planned a while ago -then cancelled at the last minute… Instead, I decided to sort my pictures of the Big Apple, taken with a vintage Minolta film camera over the 5 years we spent in the US, and to choose 10 to turn into arty postcards.

I printed them through MOO, which I discovered when I briefly worked at one of WeWork‘s London locations, where all the entrepreneurs and creative programmers seem to use the service to design and print stunning business cards.

The website is very easy to use (and quite frankly more fun to navigate than some of their competitors…): pick a product, upload your artwork, customize the text and you’re all done! I ordered my postcards last wednesday and they arrived on Saturday. Not bad, uh?

So that you can get an idea of the quality of the printing and the finish of my postcards, take a look at these pictures. I had chosen the pre-set Luxury postcards that MOO offers, which are –as you can see– very thick and mat. Perfect for vintage style pictures with a heavy grain.

And here are my two favorites… I shot the first one on 6th Avenue, in Midtown, in January 2012; the second one shows –obviously- the Flatiron Building, shot on a very hot summer afternoon in 2013.

Do you like the postcards? If you do, shoot me an email on alex@leclubdesdouze.com or mention me on Twitter (@leclubdesdouze) to tell me which one you’d like to receive in the mail! I’ll pick two winners over the weekend. Good luck!
