the lazy what? 

en — the lazy postcard is a postcard where the writing area has been cut out, impeding (or sparing) the sender from writing a message. With these cards, it is the thought that counts, not the content of the message.

fr — the lazy postcard est un projet de cartes postales découpées sur la zone d’écriture, empêchant (ou épargnant) l’expéditeur d’écrire. Avec ces cartes, l’intention compte davantage que le contenu du message.

design "trous"
design "trous"

 en — All the cut outs are designed and minimalistic. Some are illustrative enough to convey a special message such as: "I am on holiday at the beach", "I am skiing". Others are more abstract, allowing someone’s own interpretation to define their meaning.

fr — Les découpes sont graphiques et épurées. Certaines sont suffisamment illustratives pour se passer de texte : « Je suis en vacances à la plage », « Je fais du ski »…, tandis que d'autres sont plus abstraites et permettent ainsi de s’approprier la carte et le caractère du message.

lazy but thoughtful 

en — A postcard is a sentimental object. We send them regardless of its design to let people know we are thinking of them, and we cherish the postcards we receive from friends and loved-ones even if it is not to our taste. the lazy postcard is not only a considerable gesture but a beautiful simple object you want to keep and exhibit, and that encourages you to send and receive more postcards.

fr — Une carte postale est un objet sentimental, porteur d’une attention particulière d’une personne à une autre. On l'envoie même si l'image ne nous plaît pas et on la garde même si elle n'est pas à notre goût. the lazy postcard est non seulement une belle attention mais aussi un bel objet qu'on a envie de garder et qui donne envie d'envoyer et de recevoir des cartes.

Manufacturing / fabriqué en France

en — Each card measures 10x15 cm, laser cut from 300g shinny coated paper.

The prototypes have been produced in France by a professional printing company who will handle the final production.

fr — Chaque carte mesure 10x15 cm, sur un papier pelliculé mat 300g découpé au laser. 

Les prototypes ont été produits par un imprimeur en France qui réalisera ensuite la production finale.

Budget

en — the lazy postcards are produced using laser cutting as it is the only method of production that can guarantee a high level of detail. This high-quality process is expensive and producing large quantities of cards is the only way to bring the price-point to an attractive level for consumers.

fr — Seule la découpe laser permet un rendu aussi détaillé, mais il s'agit d'un procédé coûteux. Imprimer en grandes quantités me permettra donc de proposer ce produit à un prix raisonnable. 

Proof of concept

en — The postcards are highly resilient and they have been tested using various postal services to different destinations all across the world. I have worked tirelessly to assess and improve the durability and handling of the postcards. The cut outs are carefully placed to maintain the rigidity of the card and the coated paper provides an extra layer of protection. Your lazy postcard is ready for its journey !

fr — La tenue de tous les prototypes a été testée par envoi postal en Europe ou à l'international afin d’éprouver concrètement le produit, puis elle a été affinée au cas par cas. Les découpes sont maîtrisées de façon à ne pas affecter leur rigidité et le papier est pelliculé afin de mieux les protéger. Votre lazy postcard est prête pour voyager !

en — Every postcard carries a trace of its journey, through different stamps, bar codes and slight marks. This is what gives it its charm and character.

fr — Une carte postale porte toujours les marques de son voyage — selon le chemin parcouru et les aléas rencontrés — et c’est aussi ce qui fait son charme !

Quickstarter

en — The Quickstarter's concept suits perfectly this project. The principle of "quick" matches with the spirit of "lazy". 

fr — Le concept Quickstarter est parfait pour promouvoir les lazy postcards. Le principe "quick" colle tout à fait avec l'esprit "lazy" du projet.

Thank you

en — Thanks a lot to Arno, Eliott, Alex and my family! 

fr — Merci beaucoup à Arno, Eliott, Alex et ma famille !

Risks and challenges

en — To launch and build my very first kick/quick/starter campaign is an exciting experience. Reaching the campaign’s goal would not only be a dream but would allow me to develop this project further with more designs and more lazy messages for everyone.

fr — Lancer ma première campagne kick/quick/starter est très enthousiasmant. J'espère qu'elle me permettra de réaliser mon projet et de le mener plus loin pour proposer plus de lazy designs pour tout le monde.
