Booksmart Studio is proud to offer the Libro Collection as a high-end digital print portfolio system. Photographers and artists have the option of choosing between three grades of book cloth/leatherettes; Canson Infinity, Epson, Inkpress, Innova, Hahnemuhle, and Museo inkjet papers; and five finished sizes. The elegant design of this portfolio/album system allows individuals to layout, print, and then reassemble the pages for a professionally crafted, finished portfolio. We can also print for you in-house on either our inkjet printers or our HP Indigo depending on your budget.
Booksmart Studio’s inkjet printable aluminum creates extremely archival, durable, and luminous prints on five different metal surfaces. The precoated metal accepts most pigment or dye inks, and can be cold laminated or coated for a durable finish. The Fine Art Metal series is more archival than the dye-sub materials most labs are offering because you will print direct with your pigment inks onto the surface. Yes, our material is more expensive and requires more finishing work then dye-sub metal prints. However, you cannot get a more archival print combination on metal for your fine print.
Booksmart Studio has created many of the generic ICC profiles you download from most of the leading fine art inkjet manufacturers on the market (Berger, BF Inkjet Media, Canson Infinity, Innova, Strathmore, & Museo). We also offer our custom ICC profiling services for RGB or CMYK printers to anyone that demands the utmost control over their color. We have various device and software combinations that will help insure that we can provide the ICC profiles you require.  
Book Publishing is our specialty with a strong emphasis on the fine edition book utilizing inkjet technology or our 6 color HP Indigo. Our specialty is in producing books that are handcrafted and never just glued to ensure they will stand the test of time. Another important aspect of our book production, is that we NEVER use a template, as each book project is approached uniquely from concept to a finished product. In our studio we are constantly looking to push the boundaries of The Book. We also offer services for every aspect of making a fine edition book including binding, designing, enclosures, & printing books.
Booksmart Studio’s philosophy is deeply rooted in the belief that the collaboration between the artist and the printmaker results in the finest work. We will not sacrifice this collaboration for the quick buck, as we define ourselves as fine edition printmakers. This model comes from the traditional printmaking background that Booksmart Studio’s owner holds with his MFA in Printmaking & Book Arts. The digital fine edition influence comes from his MS in Electronic Publishing, the combination has created a unique perspective on printmaking (digital or traditional) and the notion of the atelier.
