File Preparation Instructions and Plate Types

Digital Film Positive Histogram

Not a Photoshop guru? We can help!

We do ask that you provide us with the highest quality files you can so that we may provide you with the highest quality plates.

For optimal quality, please submit your files in Photoshop or TIF format, 16bit, 720 dpi, but no less than 8bit, 300 dpi. Any image without a balanced histogram will be normalized for transfer to polymer plate, unless otherwise instructed by the client.

If the above computer file requirements read like jibberish to you, Intaglio Editions' expert file preparation services are $150/hour,one hour minimum. Most image files require one hour of preparation time for optimal transfer to polymer plate.

We can also gang up several images on one plate, and cut them to specifications. For grouped images a plate cutting fee will apply. We also need to allow for a 1 centimeter margin between each image. Plate cutting and image preparation fees will vary, so contact us with your project's specific needs for a quote.
