  9. 9. Behind the Scenes<br />Once your order is processed and put into our system it goes through several steps before becoming a finished product. The more technological aspects of the job flow are explained below.<br />Digital Imaging<br />Before outputting any of our digital products, we &quot;preflight&quot; the customer generated computer files. This entails checking for viruses, adequate resolution, image links and fonts, ensuring that all the graphic elements of the file are correct and will print properly.Our 40 technicians, throughout a three shift production schedule, perform size adjustments, photo retouching, color correction, color matching and complex customer requests that including design and assembly of layouts. Our extensive production capabilities are achieved with the aid of our fully loaded Digital Imaging Department composed of twenty 2 GHz G5 Macintosh computers, two high resolution drum scanners, flatbed scanners and the latest versions of Adobe Illustrator CS3, Photoshop CS3, InDesign CS3, QuarkXpress and other graphics software.All jobs are archived on our state of the art back-up system. This system serves the dual purpose of allowing us to archive customer files for quick retrieval on reorders and provide an extra measure of file security for our customers.<br />Color Management is involved in nearly every aspect of the production of our products.<br />We have educated our Customer Service and Technical Service personnel in the capabilities of our equipment to help them assist our clients make informed decisions, and maintain realistic expectations. <br />Obviously, our Pantone books represent a large facet of our job. It is the industry standard for accurate color communication, and is a cornerstone to our color matching. We actually have pre-matched the entire Pantone Solid Coated library on 2 of our processes and are working on our 3rd. This allows our Digital Imaging department to print with full confidence, any Pantone color and know they are getting the closest match possible. Reference charts are available. An easy to use chart that shows swatches of over 22,000 CMYK values is often used when we are asked to match the color to an existing piece of art. An inspection area, using color correct lights is available. <br />
