Contact Image has grown from the merging of two successful Montreal-based

With the advent of large format digital imaging, the opportunity to become a
dominant player in this new market presented itself and the two ﬁrms joined together
as Contact Image.
As part of the current management team’s long-term vision, Contact Image recently
moved to a new facility. This new plant maximizes work ﬂow efﬁciency and allows

The entire team at Contact Image would welcome the opportunity to help
you produce high impact images for all of your large format projects.
