Water Is Life poster

We were honored to be selected by Oregonian photographer John Chao to print his Water Is Life poster. John spent many days at Standing Rock Indian Reservation documenting protesters standing in solidarity to halt the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Two versions were printed using 100% recycled paper on our new Komori press; for more photos see keeplifepure.

XCMYK color profiling

We are pleased to have completed our work as a beta site for Idealliance’s new XCMYK expanded gamut color profile. We were chosen for this work because of Idealliance’s confidence in our ability to print accurate, repeatable press sheets using stochastic screening. The new color profile will reflect the broader range of colors achievable on press through stochastic printing and when complete will be used by those printers with the most demanding color requirements.
