The Loupe

The Loupe was developed to provide students in the Graphics, Print and Document Systems Industry personalized access to Xplor professionals.

The Loupe will enable student members to explore and expand their opportunities by accessing the breadth of knowledge and experience provided by Xplor Canada’s Mentor community.

A common Graphics industry term, the loupe is a lens built into a small stand. It is used to inspect copy, film, proofs, plates and printing. The Loupe represents Xplor’s commitment to foster its growing community of student members and to give back to the evolving graphics communications industry. It is also an opportunity for respected leaders in the industry to share their passion and expertise, and to nurture the next generation of graphics professionals.

In addition to gaining access to Xplor Canada’s professional members, The Loupe members will be invited to networking and industry events throughout the year, giving students and Mentors the opportunity for face-to-face interaction.
