SINGAPORE - Canon today announced that FotoHub.com Pte Ltd (FotoHub), Singapore's leading provider of photo prints and photo books, will deploy the first DreamLabo 5000 production inkjet printer sold in Singapore. FotoHub will use Canon's DreamLabo to provide high definition (HD) print services for its customers - offering a higher industry standard of 2400 x 1200 dpi print resolution, and redefining the standards of photo print quality in the market.
"Our mission has always been in the provision of best quality services to our customers through constant enhancement and innovation, and the acquisition of Canon DreamLabo 5000 sees to its fulfillment by extending our print services into the high definition arena," said Eric Tan, CEO, FotoHub.com Pte Ltd. Available for the first time in Singapore, FotoHub's high definition photo book (HD PhotoBook) will cater to customers' need for superior 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.
FotoHub's purchase of the Canon DreamLabo comes at an opportune time as it seeks to modernize and reinvent its business to meet the needs of the customers and achieve sustainable growth. 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).
"We're observing a trend of more customers than ever seeking solutions which enable them to tell stories with the photos they take, and demanding true high-definition quality print. For example, young parents, couples getting married and professional photographers are all looking to PhotoBooks as platforms to preserve their memories," said Mr Eric Tan, CEO, FotoHub.com Pte Ltd. "With the DreamLabo 5000, we offer the opportunity to capture their narrative in a new dimension through the delivery of true colour and minute details. This is embodied in our HD PhotoBook tagline - Share your memories your way, your life in HD."
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 revitalize the entire personal print industry.
"At Canon, we believe in helping entrepreneurs meet the needs of their customers - both current and emerging. 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 honored 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."
