Singapore's leading provider of photo prints and photo books, FotoHub.com Pte Ltd, will soon be operating the first Canon DreamLabo 5000 production inkjet printer in Singapore.
FotoHub group is a one-stop professional imaging solutions provider that offers services ranging from traditional developing to printing of personalised imaging products and services as well as on-site and on-line digital imaging solutions.
FotoHub will be using Canon's DreamLabo to provide high definition (HD) print services for its customers — offering up to 2400 x 1200 dpi print resolution. Besides the HD PhotoBook and Prints, the company also plans to use the DreamLabo 5000 to support the high-end printing needs of its corporate customers, including the production of books, calendars and other high-quality print-on-demand items (e.g. bespoke photobook).
Available for the first time in Singapore, FotoHub's HD photo book will cater to customers' need for high-quality photo books with high resolution and also the flexibility to print in a variety of print formats, including custom sizes and double-sided printing.
"There's a growing trend of customers seeking solutions which enable them to tell stories with the photos they take, and demanding true high-definition quality print," said Eric Tan, CEO, FotoHub. "For example, young parents, couples getting married and professional photographers are all looking to PhotoBooks as platforms to preserve their memories."
Tan added that the acquisition of the Canon DreamLabo 5000 will enable FotoHub to reach out to a bigger clientele with the extension of its print services into the high definition arena.
For Canon, the introduction of the DreamLabo 5000 marks its entry into the production photo printing market and an opportunity to introduce technology that will revitalise the personal print industry.
"For the last 28 years, the FotoHub brand has stood for quality both with consumers and professional photographers," said Melvyn Ho, Senior Vice President, Domestic Operations, Canon Singapore. "We are honoured that they have chosen the Canon DreamLabo 5000 production photo printer and are proud to welcome a market leader like FotoHub to the Canon family of customers."
