FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DIGITALCUSTOM GROUP ANNOUNCES DEAL TO LAUNCH CUSTOM DIGITAL PHOTO EDITING IN EASTERN EUROPE


San Francisco, CA () - DigitalCustom Group, Inc. today announced that it has signed an agreement with Veranim BT of Budapest, Hungary to offer comprehensive custom digital editing services in Hungary and other parts of Eastern Europe. Under the agreement, Veranim will roll out photo restoration, skin repair, glamourization and a host of other custom photo editing services through relationships with Hungarian photo retailers and online services.

Veranim has entered into an agreement with PRIM Media Publishing and Communications RT to offer custom digital editing services through PRIM's consumer web site "PRIM Online" (www.prim.hu). PRIM Media RT. serves a wide Eastern European audience; an established market leader in Hungary with rapidly expanding ASP portal services in the Czech Republic, the Slovak Republic and Romania.

DigitalCustom's President, Jeff Makoff, said: "Our relationship with Veranim, and its relationship with PRIM's leading Eastern European Web site, launches our service in Eastern Europe. Given the historical significance of Eastern Europe, we expect early demand to be primarily in the area of high-quality old photo restoration. As digital photography increasingly penetrates Eastern Europe, there inevitably will be a growing demand for image repair of all kinds. These deals are another step in our mission to let consumers know they are not stuck with bad photos any more - high-quality custom editing by professionals is available now."

Bernadette Kiss, Veranim's General Manager for the service, said "We are very eager to offer DigitalCustom's services in Eastern Europe. The deterioration and partial destruction of historical photographs is a serious problem. Photo restoration is a service that will be attractive to photographers and archivists alike. The new service will bring an exciting array of outstanding products to our clients in a region where such services are not yet accessible and traditionally strong family values offer a good market opportunity. Consumers will appreciate the flexibility that DigitalCustom's service gives them for important recent photos and family memories as well."

Veranim's contact in Hungary is Ms. Bernadette Kiss, General Manager for Custom Digital Editing Services (BernadetteKiss@prim.hu) (Tel.: +36 20 917-9539).
