Following is information about setting up files
and providing original artwork for copy shots.
  

Originals
A copy shot can be made from your original artwork. Original line, gray scale and color artworks can be captured up to 36" x 48". Please make sure artwork is dry or fixed before delivering. Call ahead to schedule a drop off.

Image Editing
Images needing repairs, alterations such as removing signatures or unwanted elements in older artworks or photographs, and creative concepts are welcome. Resizing, cropping, layout and design work, marketing sheets and other services are available. Please call to discuss your projects.


Setting up files for output

Formats: Mac or Windows

Media: CD's DVD's or USB thumb drives
We are happy to arrange Dropbox file transfers.

Colorspace: Adobe 1998 works great for initial soft proofing and should be embedded in the files.

Resolution: 360, 300, 180 or 150ppi @ 100% of final output dimension is best.

Using profile to profile conversions to get from a special user colorspace to Adobe 1998 will provide very good results. Remember to change your settings in RGB setup to reflect the correct colorspace. This will allow you to more accurately review the file for adjustments before proofing (this is a good starting point for client tests for output.) In Photoshop you can preview and also embed the profile when saving.

*Please provide flattened files and any hard copy materials in advance if a match is desired.
*Let us know about any critical deadlines.
*Always back up your files!
