Reproduction

Our reproduction service includes cut-outs, multi-image montage, colour matching
to supplied copy, type setting, barcode and proofing.  Proofs are produced on the press and
are effectively ‘advance copies’ of the final job, printed on the chosen paper stock, backed up and trimmed to size.  We can work from digital files*, transparencies, prints or even small original artworks. Once an image has been approved by the customer it is archived for future use – in this way we can guarantee a continuity of colour across a product range.
As an added insurance a duplicate of the archive is created and kept ‘off-site’.
We also offer a facsimile reproduction service where we colour match to an original work in your museum or gallery – there is an additional cost for this service depending on location.

*If supplying us with digital files please note that:

  • A6 reproductions ideally require a minimum file size of 10 megabytes
  • A5 20 megabytes
  • A4 40 megabytes
