Digital Fine Art Reproduction
Color Techniques Imaging would like to acquaint you with our Digital
Fine Art Reproduction services utilizing state-of-the-art digital
equipment and software ensuring precise replication of the original
artist colors. Our Services utilize varied Inkjet printers, a Phase
One Fx scanning camera, and drum scanner for transparencies. The
unique combination of Digital Capture, Color Conversion Software,
and sophisticated color measurement devices ensures precise replication
of your artwork, even colors traditionally difficult to reproduce.
Direct Scanning: We can digitize directly from
your original art with a high-end studio camera, and can work from
canvas, watercolors, drawings, etc. Please send the artwork unframed,
as the frame creates a shadow around the edge of the artwork.
Scanning from Photographs: We have obtained outstanding
reproductions from transparencies, both 35mm and large format. We
request that you scrutinize the transparency closely to ensure that
it is a satisfactory representation of your artwork. While computers
can work wonders, it is more economical to shoot a new high quality
photo than it is to retouch a shot which is off color.
Some of the normally stocked media are:
photo gloss paper, lustre photo paper, bond paper, scrim banner,
polypropylene banner, adhesive backed vinyl,
7 year cast vinyl (vehicle), window perf, 15 mil polystyrene, matte
canvas, glossy canvas, static cling, pvc mesh, backlit film,
Hahnemuhle, Torchon, Wm, Turner and Somerset Velvet

A WORD ABOUT COLOR MATCHING
We have a COLORSYNC color managed workflow between our monitors,
scanners, and output devices. It is advised that you (when possible)
attach a color profile to your RGB or CMYK document. Also, you should
CALIBRATE your monitor and use that calibration in your appropriate
APPLICATIONS. ADOBE programs allow you to SET UP COLOR MANAGEMENT
among their applications for consistent use of .ICC profiles.
Files created in RGB mode should be left for us to convert to CMYK,
unless you have a color managed environment.
Files created in CMYK mode should ideally be tagged with a CMYK
profile. If no color management is used, it is helpful if you let
100 ppi at FINAL OUTPUT SIZE is the resolution necessary for your
For prints up to 16x20 or a bit larger, if the NATIVE (scanned or
resolution is more, you can leave it at that size. For files larger
in scale, 100 ppi is fine.
It is no value to interpolate pixels in Photoshop from a small file
to a larger file size.
Please make sure files are PROPORTIONAL to the desired print size.
If there is adequate resolution (100ppi@final size) we can scale
up or down.
Please call us with any questions before you send a file, and we
will be happy to discuss your project.
