I’ve been working with Art Ink Print for eight years and Scott and company are simply the best. The quality of their products and customer service is second to none. I don’t know where my business would be without them!

Kari Lehr

I first met Scott in 2012 when I was fairly new to the art world (as a business) and knew very little about prints, art cards, etc. Art Ink Print has been a great asset to my business as customers are always impressed by the qualities of the paper and overall printing of my products. I had some art cards printed elsewhere before I stumbled on Art Ink Print’s website, but after meeting Scott and having a few card sets done up, I’ve become a loyal customer. Scott and the Art Ink Print Team not only offer excellent and high quality printing, but are also full of art wisdom and tips. It’s always nice to go in and pick up orders as everyone who works there is very friendly and knowledgeable.

Amy Frank

Art Ink Print is an absolutely phenomenal company! This was my first time using their printing services and the results (with both the prints and the customer service) far exceeded my expectations! I am so glad that I chose this company to make my prints for me as they were so helpful, patient, kind and supportive during my first attempt at reproducing my artwork. I will definitely be using their services again in the future! Thank you!

Gabrielle Parent

Many thanks for finding a image in his files that we hand lost. What a great feeling.

Lynda McKewan

Thank you Scott, for your passionate dedication to excellence.

Sekoya Dawn

Many thanks for the fast and good quality work you consistently produce. My clients are pleased with the quality which helps my work look even better! I am looking forward to working together on more projects hopefully soon!

Fern Spackman

Dear Scott and Karina, It’s been great to work with you this year! Scott, you are a joy to do colour proofing with – enthusiastic & accommodating & you know your stuff!!

Carol Evans

Thank you for another job well done Scott. You have such an eye for detail and such a desire to do it right, that it just makes the printing part so easy now. After the years of struggling through that stage, it is so wonderful to to have my mind free to just paint… I am truly blessed to work with someone who has the integrity level I hold dear, and at the risk of sounding repetetive, the thanks are always sincere.
