The prints in your portfolio have got to look top quality to really do your work justice. You’ve got to have the right printer, inks, color profiles, monitor calibration and of course – the right paper.
Photographer, Jodi Jones recently reprinted her portfolio. She made sure to do it right and settled on a Canon Pixma Pro-100 Printer and Moab Scored Inkjet paper in Matte. The proof is in the feedback she got – “Creatives actually want to feel my images when they are looking at them because the colors are so rich and the blacks are simply astonishing.”
First-time sponsor of Art Miami, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, will showcase its range of printing solutions for the fine arts industry at CONTEXT December 3 -- 8 at the Midtown Miami complex.

At the Canon booth #E13, award-winning photographer Robert Farber will showcase a collage of his most impressive images and share insights and personal experiences for working with the output devices. Show attendees can interact with Canon's latest artistic printing solutions -- including the imagePROGRAF iPF6450 printer, which features enhanced color management capabilities and the PIXMA PRO-1 printer -- a powerful, high-quality professional inkjet printer that produces stunning color prints and dynamic black-and-white images. All of the images will be printed on Moab's Somerset Museum Rag. Robert will also be giving out 16x20 sized images.
"As photographers, we look to tell a story or convey a message through the power of an image," said photographer Robert Farber. "Canon's imagePROGRAF and PIXMA PRO printers help showcase this story by delivering high-quality, archival imaging capabilities and creative applications that can enhance moments we've captured through our lens. I'm looking forward to engaging with other professionals at Art Miami to hear some of their latest inspirations and discuss the potential that lies with Canon's fine art printers."

Think of it as our end of summer haircut. Here’s a quick snapshot of what’s new:
Front and center is our blog. We’ll be sharing printing and paper tips, highlighting photo & Moab events around the country, showing some of the cool things our customers are doing and probably a bunch of other things we haven’t thought of yet.
Next is our Knowledge Base – we get asked a LOT of questions, from the very basic to the truly perplexing. The knowledge base is where we’ll share what we know and what we learn along the way. This should be your first stop for paper and printing questions.
Improved ICC profile library – we’ve added many more profiles and (hopefully) made it easier to find what you’re looking for. We also posted all sorts of instructions for using them in the hopes of de-mystifying the process.
Most of all, we want to hear from you. If you’re doing something cool and want us to link to it, drop us a line. If there’s something you’d like to see on the site, let us know.
Greg Schern, President, The Moab Paper Company, joins host Scott Sheppard live from his WPPI 2008 Booth to discuss how photographers can produce impactful images for their clients using a variety of Moab's paper stock. Moab papers are easy to use and come with their own ICC printer output profiles.
