Design Presentations

High resolution scanners let us add photos. Photoshop software enables us to enhance or modify photos to fulfill any need. Color printers provide us with a limitless color pallet. Our font libraries include hundreds of fonts. Output devices allow us to vary the media to be used.

Enhance and Print Your Files

If you have a file that you have created yourself or had prepared somewhere else we can provide you with high quality output on a variety of media.  We are able to support most major software programs. If we do not have a particular program, we can guide you through the process of creating a Postscript file or PDF file.  If your project needs to be enhanced, one of our staff members will be happy to supply the finishing touches.  Some processes take longer than others, we will do our very best to meet your deadline.
