Graphiscan has had more than enough time to mature. Founded in …, this company is built on a sturdy tradition. Expertise, openness and adaptability of its passionate team have contributed to raising Graphiscan to the top of its field. At the beginning, Graphiscan’s high end rotary scanners were its trademark. Inevitably, new technologies appeared on the market at the turn of the century, and digital cameras gradually became more popular. These new equipment were about to drastically change the reality of printed documents. In 2002, Graphiscan was already ahead of its time and was the first in Canada to acquire a digital press. Since then, Graphiscan has always made a point of working with the most sophisticated and performing equipment available in order to satisfy its customers’ growing need for quality and precision.

Graphiscan is faithful to your colors from the beginning to the end of the graphic process. In order to guarantee the consistency of your colors from one piece of equipment to the other, through the different systems and applications, Graphiscan uses GRACol compatible ICC profiles. It is a color normalisation system that was developed for sheet by sheet offset printing.
Your proof is compared to the GRACol standard and the system establishes if the result is faithful to the imprint before issuing the proof certification. This process could be done by the human eye, be we do it scientifically, by using spectral measurements and densitometry data. The proof that you will approve is GRACol certified, which guarantees a 97% level of compatibility of your documents.
Graphiscan has a Heidelberg CD 102 press with aqueous varnish, as well as a Heidelberg 8 colors "perfector" press. With both these pieces of equipment available, you can go wild and exceed the regular 4 color process by adding metallic or PMS colors. You can also create special effects with full surface, selective or tinted varnishes.
For all of our presses, we use Green, vegetable inks. These inks are considered to be harmless to the environment.
Colors and quality are always important, for proofs as well as for high speed printing. Since the economical factor is also important, Graphiscan chose to combine these aspects by using its color HP Indigo 3550 Digital Press.
