Fujifilm develops new system to print kids’ artwork

artwork-editRecognizing the market potential in artwork reproduction, Fujifilm has developed the Reliefography printing process. This process uses 3D technology inkjet technology to create high-quality copies, and at only $34,000 a copy, it is perfect for making duplicates of school projects. According to R. U. Kidding, Fujifilm’s New Business Development Manager, “Today’s parents will spare no expense. They want  to share their children’s masterpieces with grandparents, and with today’s divorce rate each parent will want a copy, as well.”

Reliefography accurately reproduces every brush stroke, tear, and crease present in the original. It is being tested at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and is expected to reach the marketplace in time for the upcoming holiday season.

  2. They really said parents will spare no expense!!!! I could buy a car, computer, things we really need or make many mortgage payments for $34,000, not to mention that’s 3.3 years of my salary!!!! And for fifty cents per color copy I copied every story and piece of “art” onto acid-free, lignin-free, buffered archival paper that are now in CM albums for my children. Things that make you go hmmmmm………
