We pride ourselves in our customer support, attention to detail, and the devotion to making your project the best it can be.

At I/O Color, we combine our skills in photography, offset and digital printing, color science, and digital layout tools with the appreciation for fine paper, cloth, and materials. The results are objects that remain true to your vision, made responsibly from sustainable resources, with a legacy to be proud of.

Our history of scanning goes back to when drum scanners were programmed with paper tape. Today we offer state of the art drum and flatbed scanning with unmatched skill and sensitivity.
Digital capture
From our digital copy stand to our custom panoramic system for large artwork, museums, collectors and artists rely on us to get the most nuanced detail possible. We have pioneered raked lighting techniques for works on paper to focus-stacking for large objects that need sharpness beyond what conventional lenses can provide. Our new panoramic system allows us to capture flat art with a resolution of over 300ppi at actual size.
Color management
We pioneered implementation of ICC based processes in the stock photo and offshore print markets. Our understanding of the process goes way beyond ISO standards into advanced methods for achieving the highest quality using new ink sets and screening methods. Absolute diligence to process control gives us a big edge in understanding how to get superb results from start to finish.
You interact with the team member doing the work, together you share an investment in the results. Printers appreciate our dedication to process control, they trust iocolor proofs to be easy to run on press, saving valuable time. With over twenty years of print color management expertise, our team is uniquely qualified to get your project from ordinary to outstanding.
