A reproduction produced by us always includes postproduction. The reproduction file on a calibrated monitor is compared with the original under D50 standard light (5,000 K) in such a way that the maximum possible match (e.g. colors, contrast, detail reproduction) is achieved. For optimal color matching, the KODAK Color Card (KODAK Color Patches and KODAK Gray Scale) is reproduced with each reproduction. On the basis these are made first the basic color adjustments.
Additional retouching or partial restorations can be carried out in the following
You will receive one TIFF file per reproduction.
The output format is between A2 (42 cm x 60 cm) and 100 cm x 150 cm at 300 dpi or larger, depending on agreement and technical feasibility.
As a rule, we only make reproductions that are subsequently also printed by us (minimum print quantity per reproduction: 1 print). Special arrangements by agreement.
For artworks with white borders or large white areas, the “white” can never be displayed as 100% white (RGB 255-255-255). Paper always has an inherent color (paper color). In addition, a scanner or camera also perceives and depicts optical brighteners differently than the human eye.
In the later print from the reproduction file, therefore, it is not the paper white of the printed paper that is visible at these areas, but the color tone of the paper white of the original.
Neon colors cannot be fully represented by the printer because they are partly outside the color space used.
