The importance of print

A real page-turner
Canadian still-life and conceptual photographer Nik Mirus contributed some striking images that ask the viewer to write their own story. An open-invitation to come see it for yourself.
Just what is it about Print?
There is a sense of comfort in knowing that words are real. That visuals can be touched and in turn, touch the audience themselves. For a printer, it is a responsibility to match the colours and crispness of the artist’s vision or intention. But it is the work itself, contained within the pages of a book that no blog post could ever match (*even this one).
There is just something about the feel of a well-printed piece. The way that it smells and even the weight of it in your hands. In this world of digital design, print keeps us grounded to each other and the stories that we capture on pages to share.
Printed Displays and Invitations
Proprint was tasked with producing some vibrant large and small scale pieces. For this job, they selected the INCA R40i Digital Flatbed Press for it’s accurate colour matching and large-format capabilities.
