Images enhance many books. To ensure that you achieve the best result with those images, good files are necessary. Whether you are starting from historical photos, slides, or your author’s digital images, ICS will assure that they are adjusted to print most effectively.
• Top-of-the-line Heidelberg flatbed scanner
• Restoration of damaged images
• Proofing to match final output
• Modifications to line art, charts, etc.
• Printer-ready final files
Our professional scanning equipment catches nuances not normally achieved by desktop scanners. Need a 35 mm slide blown up to use at 11 x 17 inches? No problem. Need damaged historical photos scanned and restored? We can do that. Have sketches that need to print clearly? We can do that too. We adjust contrast to bring out clarity, restore damaged areas, enhance color—whatever it takes to make your images look their best.
We offer full color and b/w proofing and work with the ultimate printer to assure that the proofs closely approximate what the finished book will look like.
If you have author-supplied charts or drawings that need some modification, we’ll do whatever is necessary. We’ll even check supplied art ahead of time to see if it will be usable in the form provided and recommend any necessary adjustments to enhance the printability.
When your project is ready to go to the printer, we prepare final output files to your printer’s specifications.
Let us help you produce your best work.
