We have developed a reputation over the years as one of the premier companies in the country for photography and art reproduction, and have done work for many well known artists on canvas, art papers, metal, wood, acrylic and other unique substrates. Many of us have over 25 years experience in scanning and capturing original art, and adjusting colors for the best possible match to the original.
We still offer traditional pre-press services. We can proof your files to all U.S. and International Standards, such as GRACol, SWOP 3 and 5, and Fogra, including the ability to proof Pantone and metallic colors, and proofing onto the actual paper your job will be printed on. We can also produce complete prototypes of all types of packaging. If you need transparencies or slides scanned, we do that too, as well as scanning of flat art with no size limitation. We are one of the few places that still can do film output.
We have a wide array of printers, both flatbed and roll fed, using aqueous, eco-solvent and UV inks, enabling us to print on practically any media. We can also print with opaque white and metallic inks, as well as a clear spot gloss UV ink. We print everything from posters and banners, to custom wall covering and trade show displays.
When our company was founded in 1996, we specialized in providing pre-press services to the printing industry, design firms, advertising agencies and corporate clients. We quickly became known as San Diego's premier source for scanning, color corrections and photo retouching, as well as preparing film and color proofs to industry standards for magazine ads, catalogs, packaging and countless other types of printed products.
One of our greatest strengths over the years has been our skill in working with color and color management, of which we were an early adopter some 17 years ago, and we actually were the first and, during the early stages of development, only beta site for Kodak in the development of their current flagship color management product for the printing industry - ColorFlow. Among other things, this color expertise enables us to match color across different types of output, so you don't end up with color mismatches between your offset printed brochures, digitally printed flyers, ink jet posters, packaging, trade show gaphics, etc.
