Intricate Photo Printing is a sublimation printing company that also specializes in custom signs. We began in the art world by owning a custom framing shop and have expanded into printing artwork and photos onto metal and tile (among other substrates). In a previous life we owned a tool and die shop where we learned CNC machines and so we also offer CNC engraving on wood and acrylic. However, once we were introduced to the art of Sublimation (Dye-Sub) printing we were hooked on its beauty and the depth of the images being produced. We look forward to pushing the envelope of just how intense and beautiful photo images as well as custom graphics can become. Let us put your image on metal, tile or MDF and you will be hooked as well!
Our shop is located in Holly, Michigan approximately 60 miles northwest of Detroit. We have 2400 square feet of space dedicated to printing and pressing dye-sublimation images. In that space we use two Geo-Knight flat bed presses, one is 30 inches by 40 inches the other is 64 inches by 44 inches. Our main printer is an Epson 9890 Dye-Sublimation Printer capable of printing 44 inches wide by up to 250 feet in length. We use Sawgrass IQ Pro-Photo dyes which are the highest quality dyes in existence today. The Epson is an 8 color printer and incorporates R.I.P. software to ensure accurate color output.
Our CNC router has a bed size of 30 inches by 24 inches and can route up to 4 inches thick material. We use VCarve Design software to program the machine as well as Photo VCarve which allows us to engrave digital images directly onto wood.
Intricate Photo Printing uses several graphics design software suites such as Photoshop, Lightroom and Corel X6.
