Reprographics

Reprographics, or repro printing, is simply the reproduction of graphics. Multiple images are reproduced either mechanically or electronically for use in products such as catalogs, signs, maps, billboards, blueprints, legal exhibits, medical exhibits and renderings. The images can be made in any size, regardless of the original copy, and can also be computer generated.

There are different methods used to reproduce an image in a larger size. These methods depend on what the final image is used for and the quality of image desired. For example electrostatic, photographic, laser and ink jet all give different qualities of image. The print industry over the last decade has undergone many changes. One of the biggest changes has been standardization. Due to the multi-format nature of large marketing campaigns and the vast array of machinery different types of print mediums are produced on, standardization of color is quite simply a necessity.

Most of the reprographics done today are done using computers. It is faster and less costly than the more traditional printing process, and guarantees a higher quality of work. All the files and images in use must be compatible, so they are first checked and converted to the correct color model. If a hard copy of a photo, illustration or diagram is being used, it is photoshopped to get rid of marks, blurring, scratches etc. Photoshop is also used if the image needs enhancing or changing.

Litho printing is the usual method used in reprographics. The images are printed straight from the computer file to reduce waste and to ensure that the finished product is perfect.

So quite simply, reprographics is the method used to produce a number of identical, high quality images in any size and format, with the least amount of hassle and in the shortest space of time.
