WPPI 2014

Hello, everyone!

Can you believe we are already a few weeks into 2014?

Please be aware that after 12 years of attendance, we will not have a booth at the WPPI show in Las Vegas this year.
We plan to have a booth at next year’s show.
We do still plan to offer a discount on sample albums, similar to the special that we always offered as part of the WPPI show.
Please keep an eye out for information about this special sample album discount next month!

Color Swatches on a PDF File

color swatches pdf versioncolor swatches pdf versioncolor swatches pdf versionDid you know that you can choose colors for album covers and pages by clicking onto the product page of our website? Here you’ll find 30 color swatches to choose from. Keep in mind that since our albums are handmade, it may be a challenge for us to output the exact colors of your choice. You may also view the color swatches in PDF format. This will serve as a more accurate representation of the colors you’ll get in your album as opposed to what you see on the internet. To request the PDF, please email us at la-vie@att.net and we’ll send you the file.

File uploading

It seems that there have been few customers that have been having some trouble with the ordering process on our website, so today I would like to make two suggestions that will help expedite your orders.

When you place an order, please use the uploading service on our website.

When sending your files, please make sure your files are properly labeled, and clearly placed in the appropriate folders so that our staff can easily find what’s needed to put your album together. Take these folders and files and create a single zip file with your name or studio name so that it doesn’t get lost.
We do have a lot of customers, so having everything labeled ensures that your data doesn’t get lost and you receive your product on time.
