Capturing the Essence of Original Artwork

Santa Barbara Image Cafe

Santa Barbara Image Café is dedicated to large format printing, scanning, mounting and laminating. Throughout the printmaking process, the service bureau works directly with artists to ensure their prints are exactly the way they want them.

"Large format printing in not merely a sideline for us," said Zachary Miller, president of the Image Café. "It is our obsession. We collaborate with artists, businesses, graphic designers, ad agencies and architects to create the highest quality large format output available."

"Capturing the subtleties and nuances of original artwork isn't something many service bureaus even attempt, much less master. It requires state-of-the-art digital technology, a wealth of hands-on experience and the ability to transfer your creative vision to the final print."

Santa Barbara Image Café prints the art of Patty Look Lewis - a renowned pleinariste landscape artist. Her watercolor paintings have been featured in countless exhibits and galleries.

On the Hi-Fi JET, the Image Café reproduces Lewis' paintings with Roland pigment inks and 310 mm Hahnemuhle fine art paper. The combination yields brilliant results.

"We love our Roland Hi-Fi JET," added Miller. "It's the only printer we would use."
