Thirty six years and 5 months ago – at the peak of the gilded age of film-based photography – Jim Rodgers found an opportunity to maximize his passions and his talents. In 1977, he launched Colortek which soon emerged as one of L.A.’s premier photo finishing labs and output bureaus. Success in the photo business was characterized by meticulous attention to detail, a comprehensive knowledge of color and an unrelenting commitment to on time delivery. Jim soon developed working relationships with many of the world’s leading photographers, fine artists, design agencies, museums and galleries and built a reputation as an industry leader. Colortek had arrived as an industry leader.
Two years ago, as traditional photo output morphed into the digital world, Jim joined forces with Presentation Media, Inc. to offer a comprehensive array of graphic products and services. Today’s Colortek lineup includes high quality commercial art production, commercial interiors, Giclee output, direct printing on metals and digital art displays. Today, Colortek is better than ever. And we have Jim to thank!
After a long and illustrious career, Jim has announced his retirement. But we at Colortek and PMI will carry on as Jim would want us to – and that is with a singular focus on customer satisfaction. Jim, we wish you fair winds and following seas as you continue life’s journey. We’ll always remember your passion for fine art and your enthusiasm for life.
