Due to the Covid-19 outbreak and orders by the Governor and Mayor restricting businesses, we have made adjustments to our operations.
We are currently accepting customers on an appointment only basis, so as to limit ourselves to only one customer at a time.
If you need printing services and can email or Dropbox us your files, orders can be placed through email@example.com.
Once orders are completed, you will be notified and a time can be scheduled for in-store or curbside pickup.
The film lab is closed, but will be open sometime this week, so we ARE NOW accepting film processing orders. No promises on turnaround time until they get up and running.
Business hours will be 11am-4pm on the days we are open.
Please refer to the schedule below for open dates.
Starting Monday, May 11, we will resume our normal 4 day work week, with these changes: Hours will be 11am-4pm, Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri.
All customers welcome, but appointment is preferred. Only one customer will be allowed inside at any time. We also will offer curbside pickup, if you prefer not to enter the building.

We are now located at 3801 Canal Street, #304. The first floor of the building has a healthcare clinic on the first floor. We are on the third floor. It is ok to park in the spaces on the side of the building that say "reserved for Primary Care Consultants". They are reserved for the entire building.
Please enter the building at the N. Cortez Street entrance. Enter the code #2000 into the call box, and when it buzzes, press the elevator button. You MUST enter the '#' sign. When you exit on the 3rd floor, take a right. We're three doors down on the right side. Our Maple Street location is closed.
Welcome to the Moldaner's Digital Imaging and Archiving website! We're glad you're here. Please take the time to check out our many products and services. We hope you find our site informative. Please help support local businesses. Although we no longer sell digital cameras like we did pre-Katrina, we do still have film and some darkroom accessories for film cameras. Also, check out our special services, like our archival scanning and digital wide-format printing services.
In recent years, we have begun specializing in the printing of numerous photographic art exhibits. We will soon be adding a gallery section of some of our projects, to give you a better idea of just what we have to offer in digital printing services.
Starting in 2019, we've become the preferred printer for Where Y'Art's art consulting division, doing archival print, fine art print and canvas prints for most of the new Ochsner clinics and Hospitals in the state.
In 2019, we also printed the artwork for the new Residence Inn on St. Charles Ave, which featured over 200 13 ft long pieces on adhesive fabric.
In 2016, we printed all the artwork for the brand new VA Medical Center complex in New Orleans. This included over 1700 images, of which over 100 were canvas pieces. We also printed the artwork for a Homewood Suites in the CBD, as well as the restoration of the Jung Hotel.
In 2015, we took on one of our most ambitious print projects: A 30-foot reproduction of an ancient 14th-century Codex that is part of the The Latin American Library's Special Collections. It was printed on an adhesive fabric material and is now installed in the Reading Room of the library, on the 4th floor of Tulane's Howard-Tilton Memorial Library. (Image at right)
In previous years, we have printed exhibits that have hung in The New Orleans Museum of Art (" Ancestors and Descendants " - George H. Pepper exhibit), The Collins C. Diboll Gallery ( " In theBlink of an Eye " - Harold Baquet exhibit) at Loyola University's Monroe Library, and The Latin American Library gallery ("Encounters with Antiquity" - Roxanne Davila exhibit) at Tulane University's Tilton Library. We also completed an exhibit that was part of the citywide "¡Sí Cuba!" exhibit in January of 2010.
In addition, we have been involved in ongoing scanning/archiving and restoration projects for the Middle American Research Institute, the Tulane Law School, and the Tulane School of Architecture. Some of these include archiving and reproducing images from glass Lantern Slides, nitrate negatives and 200-year old books.
Most recently, we have completed a 30,000 slide archiving project for a history professor/archaelogist at Tulane University.
