  6. 6. Proofing Separation Color Separation Once the design is defined, it needs to be brought to life across various media. This is the process where color is broken into sections and separated from the artwork with the use of specialized software and machines which are operated by a team of specially trained individuals. Digital Proofing Color brought to life. The process involves hi-tech machines that run on sophisticated software that prints the artwork/design on coated paper bringing out vibrant, accurate colors. This process helps the client to identify the color and how it’s going to look on real print as well as see the quality of images (photography) and overall layout of the artwork. The client normally makes necessary changes at this stage before final print. Quality Control Quality and Productivity is what we stand for, we have a precise standard of measurement for every job/artwork every machine and every process. Here, the finished artwork that has gone through color-separation is thoroughly checked. This is one stage that needs a keen eyed specialist (hawk eye). Just to name a few of the stages to meet the standard: Density check of every film (color separation), Photography vs image quality Typography vs font substitution, Artwork size vs distortion Precise Colour...
