ELEVATED PRINTING

Discover Arius’ elevated printing services, designed to enable both digital and physical artists to create original prints with texture or highly accurate replications. Utilizing world-leading printing technology, Arius is home to Canon’s only high-elevation printer in North America. 


Based at our Vancouver facility in Richmond, BC, this exciting new technology makes it possible for photographers, digital native artists, and AI iterative artists to print their works with fine art colour and texture. Likewise, traditional physical artists can work with the Arius alta™ studio team to iterate physical works into original print series. In addition, collectors and art institutions can create highly accurate replications of original textured work.

 

The limits of our technology are bound only by your imagination.
