In the days before mirrors, baseball players would collect their own baseball cards so that they'd always know what they looked like, regardless of slugging percentage. Enjoy the preservative nature of photographs with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $50 worth of photofinishing lab services at Lakeside Camera Photoworks, at both of its locations in Metairie and Mandeville. This deal is valid for in-store purchases only.
Named 2009 Photofinisher of the Year by Photo Industry Reporter, Lakeside Camera Photoworks offers photographic and video services and more in a boutique environment. Lakeside's photofinishing services range from commemorative mugs ($18) to wrapped canvas prints ($89–$346). Products are created in-house by attentive staff members who retouch photos with human diligence that contrasts with the cold claw-prints left by competitors' reptilian and robot employees.
Customers can turn a high-school-graduation portrait into a stylish mouse pad ($17), or create a custom photo book ($14–$312) filled with baby pictures to use as before photos in aging serum advertisements. Take a stack of family photos on a tour of the store and watch as they emblazon themselves on T-shirts ($17), calendars ($18–$29), and canvas totes ($26).
