Armed with a high resolution scanner and UV offset printing on uncoated paper, the saturated and detailed photo reproductions seen in this exhibition catalog are so accurate it should be a crime.

Q:We are having trouble with the ink of a PMS setting right on GF Smith Plike. Does anyone have experience printing a solid on this paper or should I look at another stock?

Project Description

This catalogue was created to accompany an exhibition currently on view at The Parlor at Plainspoke—a gallery space that we've established in the building where our design studio is housed. Wish/Regret is an ongoing project by conceptual artist Lauren Gillette and features the wishes and regrets of 70 subjects—all expressed as pairings of black and white mugshot style portraits made with a Hasselblad camera. Personal statements from the participants range from spontaneous and humourous to introspective and heartbreaking. The 112-page book includes high-quality duotone reproductions of 45 project participants, each appearing as facing pages within an intimate and straightforward format. Excerpts from the artist's project blog were included throughout the book on paper with a subtle difference in color and texture.

Production Lesson(s)

All of the duotone files were created in our studio—90 total scans from black and white fiber prints. We quickly realized that we would need to upgrade our scanner to one with anti-dust capability and finer resolution. Fortunately, scanners don't cost as much as they did when we purchased our last one nearly ten years ago. And the quality is far better. UV offset printing on uncoated paper allowed us to reproduce the rich saturation of the original photographs without losing detail.”
