With Superior equipment, the Finest materials, Incomparable expertise, Meticulous focus on detail, Impeccable execution, Services intended specifically for Artists and serious Photographers at Affordable prices, we at Colour Systems Inc. Studios make beautifully accurate digital reproductions of artwork and fine, custom, archival, pigment inkjet prints for artists and photographers alike in our boutique studios in Toronto.
For artists we make beautifully life-like, extremely sharp, high precision, contactless scans of their artwork. After colour correction, the digital captures are rendered to materials selected from our large library of fine art papers using top quality pigment inks and the latest large format printers for optimal print quality and longevity.
We also offer training in post-processing techniques. This training usually leads to the achievement of higher quality prints through image optimization which is achieved from the insights learned for effective image adjustments for print. For assistance with this Contact Us.
We work closely with serious photographers – pros and novices alike – to ensure their digital files are in optimal condition to achieve the best possible prints. We also scan their film, provide expert colour adjustments if required and assist with their selection of appropriate materials on which to print their images for exhibition or gallery or home display.
We have decades of expertise in direct, contactless scanning, rotary drum and flatbed scanning, colour correction, image retouching and restoration and of course museum grade, high gamut, archival Pigment Inkjet Printing.
A few Toronto printers offer what they refer to generically as “Fine Art” papers without specifying the origin or manufacturer or even the names of those papers. This reeks of the presumption that you know so little that you should not be concerned with details regardless of their importance. This is similar to a car salesman offering a car for sale without specifying make, model, year, features etc. while expecting that should be good enough for you.
As a Canson Certified Print Lab, we offer stunning fine art digital inkjet printing using 10 and 12 colour pigment inks on wide format Epson SureColor printers. We print on a wide variety of only the finest, archival cotton rag and high alpha-cellulose papers from France, Germany, Italy, England and Japan from paper mills such as Canson, Arches, Hahnemuhle, St. Cuthbert’s, Ilford, Fabriano, Moab and Awagami. These papers have finishes ranging from ultra-smooth to heavily toothed and from matte to satin gloss with various white points between bright white and warm white. On the other hand, generic, “Imitation” fine art papers do not measure up to the superior quality and longevity of our authentic fine art papers in terms of weight, texture, archival quality, printability, sharpness or colour gamut.
From beautiful, sturdy, photo-style Canson Barytas with satin gloss and mild texture to lovely, painterly, cotton based Hahnemuhle Torchon which has a lyrical, romantic feel with bright white point and undulating texture, our fine papers like our prints are simply among the highest quality that money can buy. You will not find better anywhere. Still, our pricing is reasonable and fair and is better than many if not all fine art print studios in Toronto.
Having a love of fine art printing and with a large selection of fine papers and canvas products from world renowned paper mills at hand, we create stunning prints with permanence qualities that can withstand the tests of time. Please visit our Fine Papers page for details and interesting insights into the world of fine paper.
Using the same Epson wide format, high colour gamut printers, we also offer a selection of Premium Photo-Grade papers for photographic prints on gloss, lustre, semi-matte, poster style, matte paper or canvas.
All of our printers are calibrated and profiled regularly to ensure print accuracy and consistency across all printers.
for caring artists and photographers who want to have their work reproduced and printed with perfection, we provide exceptional work. Why would anyone who cares enough about their work to render it in print accept any less?
