Retouching & Enhancement

Even the perfect image sometimes needs a little more work. Whether it's custom color adjustments, adding or removing objects from a scene, or creating a composite, we are digital artists who appreciate and understand the process of working with the artistic and the creative community. We work side by side with our Clients to provide a very individualized experience.

We have extensive experience preparing digital files for offset printing, portfolio printing, and screen use. This may entail adjusting ink values, adjusting duotone curves, creating clipping paths, and optimizing images for their specific final use or uses. Your small and large projects alike will command the same amount of personalized attention.

Digital Support

Art directors and photographers alike know that a shoot is only the beginning of an exacting process. At Hanson Digital we pride ourselves with years of experience in optimizing images for print and the Web.

We have the capacity to work on large-scale production projects such as full catalog image retouching, CMYK color conversions & corrections, and image optimization for press. Our specialties include working with our Clients' mock-ups, unifying all images, setting ink densities, and artistic enhancements. We can color-match an entire product line, even across several different photographers' work, and retouch large quantities of images for a consistent look and feel.

Commercial G7 Contract Proofing

Prepress Contract Proofing is a vital part of any design, ad layout or commercial printing project. Seeing a color accurate CMYK proof of your final layout or image before it goes to print can end up saving you a great deal of time and money in the long run.

These proofs are available in either SWOP or GRACoL standards, made within an average tolerance of 2 Delta E (dE) and gives you the best physical representation of what your layout will look like before it is printed. Many of the elements that shift on press, including gradients, line weight, textures or patterns, color accuracy and font legibility can all be verified through Contract Proofing.

Our Contract CMYK proofs are excellent and cost effective for layout verification as well. Think of them as essentially an insurance policy before getting on press.

Certified/Verified Contract Proofs

All Contract proofs are made using either Epson Standard Proofing paper for G7 GRACoL proofs or Epson Proofing Paper Commercial Proofing Stock for G7 SWOP proofs. All proofs are verified with a spectrophotometer (measurements provided) to ensure they are within the permitted specification tolerance.
