FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DIGITALCUSTOM GROUP SIGNS AGREEMENT WITH RETAIL CO-OPERATIVE GROUP TOWN & COUNTRY RETAILERS TO OFFER COMPREHENSIVE CUSTOM PHOTO EDITING


San Francisco, CA () - DigitalCustom Group, Inc. today announced that it has signed an agreement with Town & Country Photo Dealers Network to offer comprehensive custom digital editing service through the nearly 250 independent Town & Country retail photo stores throughout the United States. DigitalCustom provides high-quality photo restoration, skin repair, glamourization and a host of other custom photo editing services to photo retailers and other retailers. Under the agreement, DigitalCustom will receive digital files and highly-customized instructions through the Internet, execute and quality assure the creative work, and return completed work to Town & Country retailers through the Internet.

DigitalCustom's President, Jeff Makoff, said: "We are very pleased to be affiliated with the Town & Country dealers. Town & Country stores are premium stores, with longstanding customer relationships. DigitalCustom will allow Town & Country dealers to offer truly comprehensive custom photo repair and restoration."

Harry Reiter, President of Town & Country Dealer Network, said "We made this agreement with DigitalCustom after a test by several of our member stores. The feedback on DigitalCustom's service and quality was outstanding. While many of our retail members already offer some form of photo restoration there are a variety of reasons for the membership to have a business relationship with DigitalCustom. Most of the member stores do this work in-house. DigitalCustom performs this service on a wholesale basis and there is a cost benefit. Other store owners will find DigitalCustom is a good choice for smoothing seasonal demand, covering for vacationing or ill store employees, or simply where DigitalCustom's extra skill is required for a particularly difficult restoration. We encourage each of our dealers to add DigitalCustom's capability to their stores immediately."

Liz Ingersoll, digital artist and operator of a dedicated photo editing system at Stroudsburg Foto, a Town & Country dealer located in Stroudsburg, PA, said, "Digital Custom did a beautiful job on our test image. Our customer loved the work. Digital Custom's turn-around and quality are First Class. We signed-up immediately, submitting a second job and are looking forward to being able to take on work we would have had to turn away before."
