Contact image Overview

  1. 1. Who are we? For over 25 years, Contact Image has been regarded as an expert provider of large-format printing solutions. The first company to produce quality image sublimation on fabric in Montreal, Contact Image is known for implementing new technologies and innovative print applications. Our range of large format solutions runs the gamut from high quality, oversized photo imaging, to vinyl and fabric banners, to flat surface direct printing on almost any rigid media. From light boxes to event banners, we offer a complete range of large-format printing services. We provide fast turnaround on printing solutions for interior or exterior usage of long or short duration. 2
  2. 2. We can print up to 10’ wide images of unlimited length! Creative, unique approaches with this process can include vinyl banners, adhesive vehicle wraps and impressive entrance tapestries. Outdoor stage installations are particularly impressive. Fabric sublimation produces the elegant banners that attract at- tention and really make an impression. For media such as Coroplast and Foamcore, our highly efficient direct printing process eliminates the mounting and lamination steps. 3

High-profile customers/projects Whether a client needs to set an energetic mood for an outdoor festival, make a splash at a trade show, or host a major event that attracts worldwide attention, the staff at Contact Image rise to the challenge and produce dazzling results that please the most discerning Customers. These are a sampling of just some of the companies that have placed their trust in Contact Image to provide quality imaging, on time delivery, and to routinely go “above and beyond” to ensure complete customer satisfaction.

We are routinely complimented on the quality of our packaging. 8
  8. 8. Experience Contact Image has grown from the merging of two successful Montreal-based business entities operating in the high-end scanning / specialty imaging area and the professional photography markets. Both were innovators who constantly embraced new technologies, keeping them leaders in their respective fields. 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 for future expansion. Our experienced and talented staff are settling in to our new home and are anxious to take the company to its next level of development. The entire team at Contact Image would welcome the opportunity to help you produce high impact images for all of your large format projects. 9
