Who is Pictorem?

Pictorem is based in Montreal and is the child of a team of shutterbugs with one thing in common, a passion for photography.

Passion is like a jealous lover who consumes your thoughts, is demanding, self-absorbed, and generally dominates our time.

While preparing a photographic event and desperately trying to get the best results on canvas, we decided to get involved in doing our own printing, playing with the best resolution, colors and impact, to meet our requirements.

We are now using our experience to provide our customers with the same "wow" experience and help them to bring their photos to life and create a masterpiece.
We have shipping facilities in Champlain, NY, USA and Montreal, Canada.
We ship within the Same country of the customer, so for Canadian customers, we ship from Montreal and for US customers, we ship from New York state.

COPYRIGHT: Participant guarantees that the photo he/she is submitting is original, for which the participant owns all necessary rights.
