d'Vinci Noir Printing

Discover what true fine art printing looks like



Widely recognized in the industry as a master printer and leading innovator in digital printing technologies, Stephen Schaub is now offering limited access to his unique and unprecedented fine art printing platform.

 

In 2004 Schaub was selected to receive one of the newly produced d'Vinci Fine Art Printing Platforms, a 54" wide pigment printer designed to replace the aging Iris. In 2015 Schaub further specialized by converting his d'Vinci to a d'Vinci Noir by eliminating all color and dedicating the machine to 12 dilutions of black pigment. This makes the platform capable of producing the longest, most beautiful tonality and most stable, completely archival black and white prints possible today. It is the only d'Vinci Noir in existence.

 

Schaub adds to this his expertise as an innovator in the use of fine and handmade papers from around the world. He has been at the forefront of advanced printing technologies and featured in dozens of magazine articles and exhibitions around the globe. Distinctions received include being selected as a Yellowhouse Master, and being one of Polaroid's ten featured artists. He has consulted for such industry leaders as Kodak, Polaroid, Canson, Hahnemule, Ergosoft, and Life Magazine.

 

In addition to making his own artworks, Schaub is now offering the opportunity for clients to experience the d'Vinci Noir with their own black and white works. Far beyond the ordinary load-a-file-and-print relationship, this is a relationship of artist working with artist. Hundreds of handmade papers are possible as well as custom linearizations from neutral to warm and a wide variety of split tone printing options.

 

There is a setup fee to have your work printed on the d'Vinci Noir with Schaub. Access to the platform must be booked in advance.

 

Please contact for additional information and to discuss your specific project needs.
