wide format roll based, flexible printing

First on Vancouver Island!

Striving to diversify our environmentally friendly product line, we're pleased to announce the installation of the Mimaki CJV300-160 wide format roll printer. This print technology helps reduce the environmental impact of printing, so everyone stays healthy.

Some benefits of this printing technology are:

  • Outdoor prints achieve display permanence up to 5 years and are scratch, smudge and water resistant.
  • Indoor prints achieve display permanence up to 10 years.
  • Odour free. Inks do not contain hazardous air pollutants resulting in a better print shop environment.
  • Extremely fast turnaround times.
  • Exceptional fade resistance.
  • No minimum order.
  • 6 colour printing provides colour depth and accurate skin tones.

photo/canvas prints - indoor/outdoor banners - posters - graphics - light boxes - point-of-purchase displays - trade show displays - decals - signs - stickers

What are the limitations of soft proofing?

A PDF proof, or soft proof, is a useful tool but needs to be used with CAUTION. Specific limitations are:

  • The colour of the printed piece will not match your screen/monitor. Even with the best calibration and monitor profiling, there is no reliable way to make an RGB monitor match a CMYK print. A hardcopy proof is the only option for making sure that the end result will be what you are expecting.
  • It's human nature to skim over an item on the screen, where mistakes tend to jump out more on a printed page.
  • Sizing, folding, pagination, and orientation are very hard to judge on a screen.
  • Low resolution images won't be noticeable on the screen, but will stand out like a sore thumb on the hardcopy.
  • Graphic designers utilizing transparencies, overprints, duotones, and other techniques need to see a hardcopy to determine how these will print.

For all orders at Fotoprint, we generate a hardcopy proof at the same time as the online version. Every proof except wide-format will be accurate to the finished print (wide format is a reasonable match, a stock-match colour-accurate proof can be obtained for an additional fee)
