Digital Capture
The PowerPhase FX high resolution digital camera back is the perfect solution for flat art reproduction. The exceptional resolution of the PowerPhase FX enables the capture of fine details on even the largest originals. The amount of information in the captured file equals the amount of information of 8"x10" film. Phase One's color capturing technique is superior to that of film.

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.

Media
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,

FILE PREPARATION

Our software can accept many different file formats, however we prefer:
.psd
.tif
.eps
.pdf
.jpg
.ps (you must use the appropriate file EXTENSION: .tif .eps, etc.)
Do not send NATIVE file firmats, such as .ai , In Design, Quark, etc.
Do SAVE AS or EXPORT from your application to one of the previously mentioned formats. It is important that your document in a page layout program has all placed images, fonts, and logos before converting to an output format. In Illustrator, please convert fonts to outlines, and make a selection ( a transparent or white box sent to back) to the edge of your document.

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 us know.

RESOLUTION

100 ppi at FINAL OUTPUT SIZE is the resolution necessary for your file.
For prints up to 16x20 or a bit larger, if the NATIVE (scanned or captured)
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.
Proportion:
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.

Questions.
Please call us with any questions before you send a file, and we will be happy to discuss your project.
