Digital

Smokestack Digital is focused on fine art print, graphic & imaging services. We’re dedicated to helping artists and creators achieve their final vision. We love details and will see to those details throughout the production process. Each step is important – from conception of an idea through to final output. While our production studio is located in Hamilton, we also have a convenient downtown Toronto location for client consultation, file delivery, print proofing and pickup.

Our digital fine art print services are performed between the Epson SureColor P20000 (64″) and HP DesignJet Z3200ps (44″) which are both on the leading edge of digital output, producing stunning gallery quality archival prints on a wide range of digital, traditional, and experimental media up to 64” wide on the short side, and as long as your creativity can run.

The 64” Epson SureColor P20000 is designed for high-production photographic and fine art printing, and includes an all-new high-performance 2.6” wide Epson PrecisionCore® MicroTFP® print head. Along with an all-new Epson UltraChrome PRO ten-color pigmented ink set – including four levels of gray – the all-new SureColor P20000 is the ultimate production tool for the demanding requirements of high-production colour and black-and-white fine art printmaking.

The HP Z3200ps has twelve Vivera pigment inks including designated chromatic red, green, and blue cartridges for a broad colour gamut, while the Quad-Black ink set delivers stunning tonality in black and white, and the HP Gloss Enhancer minimizes bronzing on all gloss materials. It also contains a built in densitometer for fast and easy calibration of custom materials.
