Howard Photography and Imaging (HPI) is full service High Definition Photographer and Digital Printer. We are Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business, fully enrolled in the Small Business Administrations BidMatch program, and authorized to receive payment using local Purchase Authority credit cards issued by DOD and Non-appropriated Fund activities. Out of Chicago, we are centrally located in the country and can easily support our customers in the Midwest.
HPI specializes in Giclée reproductions in limited runs. Giclée (literally "to Squirt") Our studio was set-up to do High Definition Digital Imaging, Image rendering/correction, and n high definition printing on high quality exhibition canvas. Giclée's can be printed on flat or glossy finishes and they are lighter and more durable than images put behind glass in a frame.
HPI has a complete traveling studio, to include three back drops systems and the necessary professional lighting systems. Instead of the Artist or collector bringing their art to the Photographer, the Photographer is able to come to them. This drastically reduces the possibility of damage to the Artwork and/or allows the customer to control the sensitivity of the work. We capture your images, using a Medium Format 80 Megapixel Camera. Additionally we have a small studio capable of Green Screen (ChromaGreen) photography. Besides Art Reproduction, we can provide the following Photography services;
Over time, we all receive mementos from old jobs. They were never meant to last the test of time. They fade or are damaged as we continue to move around in our busy careers. When digitally imaged, they are protected from the ravages of time and clumsy movers. Let today’s software bring the original color back to it’s glory. Even repair delamination and accidental tears from moving.
When it’s time to print your images we have an in-house 44 inch wide bed printer with a 10 color pallet in the latest HD inkjet technology and Pantone automatic color correction technology. Our printer is capable of printing at 1400 dots per inch, it will print an image with the resolution of an iPad on Art Canvas, Photo Paper, and Bond Paper. Set up for single item runs, we can print limited runs without a problem. Instead of limited available sizes, we can print to the dimensions You require. Our Giclée's are stretched on wood frames, the backside is lined, and is ready to hang on a wall. The net result is a final product that exactly represents the original image, yet will last 200 years without a problem. As a printer we provide these services;
Menu Boards with high definition images
Customers looking for a Monet or Van Gogh to a size they require need to look no further. We will work with the customer to find Art who copyrights have expired so they might enjoy in their home or office. Our sizes are only limited to full inch dimension, we can determine the best size for their needs and print an exact copy. Instead of finding Art to fit on your space, make the Art fit the space.
We are experience at providing your Graphic Design needs. From a memory wall for a family remembrance/celebration to the menu board over your cash register we will work with you to take your idea and produce what is your minds eye. We print paper or canvas banners with High Definition pictures up to 44 inches wide by most any length for local organizations, e.g. kids volley ball, charities, reunions, etc.
Our prices are hard to beat. As a disabled Iraq war Vet, I don’t charge for my labor, as my benefits are enough, while I build my business. We donate a portion of our profits to veteran causes. We have designed our prices to allow student artists to afford capturing their art with a high definition image to protect their copyrights and then to print for resale in the future. The prices are passed on to all our customers.
