Using 'Print Art Photography' has enabled me to have the photos printed in a much larger size than I had originally thought possible . Mark’s attention to detail and his willingness to go above and beyond to meet tight schedules have been invaluable. Thanks so much." Hilda Reimer, Vavenby, BC
"Each time I receive an aluminum print from Mima, I'm amazed at how clear and vibrant it is. I've printed on many different mediums before, but nothing else gives that immediate head turning "wow" factor that infused aluminum prints do. When properly lit, they're the single most striking way to display a photograph, and Mima's prints are of exceptional quality, as is their customer service. When it comes to printing on aluminum, I won't go anywhere else."
Joel Baziuk, Elysium Photography, Vancouver, BC
"As an emerging artist, Mark at Mima has been a great resource for lifting my work to a higher level. The excellent quality and dynamic colours of an image on satin canvas are exceptional. The vibrancy, clarity and overall presentation of the same image on aluminum takes the viewer right into the image. Mark is a master of customer service, ensuring that one’s work is presented at its best and sharing his knowledge with his artists.” Laurie McDonald, Victoria, BC

“Thank you for these wonderful aluminum prints! Sizes and colours are perfect. We installed our children’s public art project last week amid rave reviews. The City of Lacombe, Alberta and the Sportsplex staff are extremely pleased! "
Larry Hunter Art & Design, Oliver, BC
"I had driven up to visit Mark to discuss the reproduction of my work, realizing it might pose a challenge as my drawings are colourful mixed media - pastel, conte and gouache on heavy water colour paper and rather delicate to handle. Mark was gracious and hospitable, showing me around his studio/printshop and explaining the process. It was obvious that his knowledge, skill and professionalism are exemplary whilst his artistic sensibilities wanted him to produce the most effective prints possible and so Mark came up with the idea of creating a cast shadow around the drawings to highlight the deckle edges of the paper - an absolutely stunning effect! I left five drawings and returned the next morning to find he had worked until the early hours to have the prints ready for me, and then they treated me to a delicious brunch. What kind and amazing service! Not only is Mark’s work of the highest quality but I feel like I have made a friend. He cares about his customers, about their art, and about every detail of his own work." Annette Nieukerk, Surrey, BC
"I have had the pleasure of working with Mark for over a year now and I won't go anywhere else. His attention to detail and use of Adobe programs to ensure the feel and textures of my work
come out in all my prints is exactly what I want as an artist." Erin McLeod, Vancouver, BC

"I delivered the print you did for me recently, to my customer last night and saw it for the first time. We were amazed! What a BEAUTIFUL job you did.

Darrell Swanson, Maple Ridge, BC

They were seamlessly lit, bright, clear .. so close to the originals that I can use them for reference.
