Colour Management

For digital imaging professionals and enthusiasts, the subject of colour management can be a source of confusion and frustration, which can lead to wasted time and materials. After an image is digitised (all capture devices have their own colour space) the workflow is influenced by the computer operating system, the image manipulation application, software build versions, monitor type and calibration settings, then ultimately the printer and paper's capabilities. We can provide the solution to quickly help you on your way to better spend your time doing what you do best.

What is colour management?

Colour management is the process of linearising and profiling a digital imaging system and its associated components for throughput and output. It is an important practise to implement for users who work with digital images on a daily basis.

How does it work?

Colour management normally consists of both a hardware and software solution for an existing computer system (ie. PC or Mac) and will allow you to consistently produce accurate prints and output files that are within industry standard colour spaces.

How can I manage my colour space?

If you would like to remotely profile a paper, please call us to discuss your requirements on 020 7833 3938. We will email you a colour chart which you need to print out, following the provided PDF instructions and send the print to us. We then read your printed chart, create the profile and email it to you with placement instructions for you to transfer into your system. Simple. This is known as remote custom colour profiling.

A single remote profile costs £100+VAT.

That sounds complicated...

We're always available to help via telephone, alternatively, we offer a remote screen sharing service. We can "take over" your screen and set up the print - all you'd need to do is load the paper.
