Why it's time to switch from ColorBurst

EFI ColorProof XF 5 and EFI Fiery XF 5 - NEW

Delivering specific support:

Do you need a proprietary color profile for your system? Do you need training on a specific piece of equipment or with a specific software program? Do you need some general help in setup and workflow? Do you need your monitors or printers calibrated and synched?

These are our strengths. We can work with you remotely or at your site to provide you a wide offering of color management training and support.

We have technicians available nationwide.

Output from your printer is unacceptable

You have faith in the quality of your image file, you believe your monitor is pretty accurate, and you may have even had better print results before, but now your printed output is way off the mark.

This is a common problem. Unfortunately there are many possible reasons that this is happening. With more than a decade of hands-on experience we can quickly get to the cause of the problem and take you through the steps to correct it.

The image on the display doesn't match the printed image

WYSIWYG- "what you see is what you get" is widely misunderstood concept. Many fact0rs affect apparent color on the display and apparent color on the printed output. There are also inherent differences between the display color and printed output color that limit how close they will appear.

Many users, including many professionals, do not understand the steps required to bring display color and printed color as close as possible. Often the steps they take to correct the situation make the original problem worse and in addition destroy an accurate color managed workflow.

We have a step by step approach to supporting you and can customize your support to give you as much or as little as you need:

1. We insure that your files are stored and presented in your system correctly and make suggestions for file optimization.
2. We confirm the hardware set-up of both the monitor and the printer.
3. We confirm that the color settings in your system and in your programs are correct and optimized.
4. We confirm that the proper color profiles are on your system.
5. We cover the actual steps and settings for printing from your programs.

I am worried that I am not bringing my files into the system correctly.

Remember the old adage Garbage in = Garbage out. Most digital cameras and scanning devices do a great job of capturing image and color information. However, how you bring them in to your system determines the quality of image you will be working with and ultimately the quality of your prints. This is one of the most critical steps in your workflow.

We can help you to protect and optimize your captured images when you bring them into your system as well as when you print them out.

I can't install and/or find my printer on my network.

This is one of those problems which you either know how to deal with or not. Troubleshooting this kind of issue is not for beginner/intermediate system users. We have the expertise to assist you in getting your printer recognized and printing.
