Uptown Graphics is a grand format printer/design shop located in Uptown New Orleans, Louisiana. We were founded 14 years ago as a pre-press shop specializing in drum scanning, photo manipulation, and contract proofing services to advertising agencies, offset printers, and screen printers. We have certified over 70,000 PDFs in our time and as technology changed and everyone became everything. Everyone was a photographer, a movie director, a NFL football player, a web designer, a graphic designer, a photoshop expert, and service bureau. Uptown Graphics was faced with a decision of digital/offset printing vs. grand format in 2004. We figured that we would leave offset to the experts and take a leap into grand format. We already were building digital files for pole banners, taxi tops, billboards and bus/vehicle wraps for years.

Since Katrina, we have invested a large amount of capital reinventing ourselves. We now have the ability to image up to 16 ft wide mesh banners, billboards, and long runs of decals used for building wraps. In addition, we have a 80 inch Vutek® 2000 UV printer which is direct to substrate at speeds of 3 minutes per 4 ft x 8 ft sheet at 540dpi. In February of 2011, we acquired a Zund G3 cutter/router and looking to acquire more imaging equipment in 2011. In the following pages you will see a good representation of our work and how far we have come in just a short period of time. We were just awarded “2011 Other Media Category” by the New Orleans Advertising Club for excellence in quality and service!
