Orchestrating the Art of Print Media

The process of creating a print media piece can often seem overwhelming; a
“thousand” different steps must be addressed before the piece is actually printed.
E. C. Shaw Company simplifies this process by using workflows with the latest
technologies that are cost and time effective. We can deliver your job on schedule
and at a competitive price. 

Color Management

Color management calculates color differences between all devices within printing to ensure consistent color throughout the reproduction process among all printers. In order to achieve accurate color, E. C. Shaw Company follows methodical steps of color management including calibration of proofing systems, creating fingerprints of each printing press and formulating a color profile. E. C. Shaw Company contributes to and meets the needs of global brand consistency through color management. Making sure brand packaging remains true and consistent around the world is critical for maintaining brand identity. The design of a package and the experience it creates within a consumer is critical. This is what draws the consumer to purchase a product. E. C. Shaw Company generates solutions that maintain global marketing strategies.

Seeing is Believing - The Proof is in the Proof

All jobs are pre-flighted to identify potential difficulties that may be encountered during actual printing. Using the customers’ parameters as a foundation, E. C. Shaw Company’s technicians make recommendations for the best print quality. The proofing process will show any modifications and an overview of the job. Our proofs replicate the final printed package with great accuracy. With today’s software, Three Dimensional Digital Proofs can save the high cost of printed samples. 3D proofs allow you to realistically rotate your product 360 degrees on both the x and y planes as an Adobe PDF, Quicktime Movie, or JPEG file. With our customized Esko WebCenter and FileCenter, you have an interactive reference library of your proofs and a digital approval cycle. Proofs can also be hard copies, printed on a variety of substrates including Kodak Approval, Calibrated and Verified Epsons and HPs to meet GraCol, SWOP, and G7 standards

Building a Better Printed Piece

The difference between mediocracy and distinctiveness in a project is color. Our technicians are well versed in all the necessary color systems to make your printed piece look the best it can. We make those skin tones more striking, enhance the warmth of a wood finish and make that cookie look better than it tastes. Our knowledge will enhance your project.
