Colour Sets, Colour Separations & Proofing

We advise that you have either of these done before your works goes to final print, so that you can check your work for any errors, as these can not be made whilst or after printing, and also saves you the extra costs of a reprint.

Image Re-touching

We can retouch image/s that you provide to us or from one that we have scanned in our reprographics department, and save it to a file format that you can still use afterwards.

Data Archiving

We can save any document that has been scanned and put onto any amount of CD/DVD’s that you may require. Also we can bookmarks files in PDF File format for ease of use for yourself when going through a document/s.
