Our Work Procedures:

Scanning
We use the High Performance Flatbed Topaz II. It is the Heidelberg scanner that made flatbeds an integral and respected part of the graphic arts landscape. It handles all kinds of reflective art, and transparencies with optical resolutions ranging up to 7,620 dpi for line art and text in its 12"x18" scanning bed. The scanner also supports originals with a maximum density up to 4.0 D. With Linocolor software and our experience, we make all scans fast and sharp.

**Color correction and color matching services available.

 

 

Supplied Digital Files
Your disk is scanned for viruses and then copied to our file server before any work is performed. The original disk is then ejected and returned without any modifications.
Software Support
Removable Media Support
Upload Files Via Internet

 

 

Preflight Files
Our technicians then preflight each file for any missing fonts, images or other common problems, to ensure your files are good without any font substitutions or ragged images.

 

 

Ripping & Imaging
The files are then ripped and sent to the Heidelberg Herkules Pro Drum Imagesetter (Drum quality is better than capstan recorders) for resolution up to 600 lpi/5,080 dpi.

 

 

Color Proofs
Fuji Color Art proofs and Imation Matchprints are recognized as the leader in accurate, dependable process color proofing. Because they are produced directly from the process-separated film negatives, they are an accurate representation of the quality of the image produced from that film. If there is any imperfection in the film (dirt, scratches, etc.) it will show up on the proof. That takes the worry and guesswork out of your process color printing.
The proofs are then reviewed with the client for approval and signed-off before production begins.

**Blueprint Proof and Colorkey also available.
