It's the reason that the some of the very best fine art photographers in the world trust their images with me ...
• Again, we print with light, not with ink! This is true photographic output, printed and processed in a darkroom! The LightJet has the widest color gamut of any photographic printer ever made - using red, green and blue lasers.
• The LightJet, with its advanced laser technology, optimizes color range and color resolution. Because of this extraordinary technology, the LightJet achieves true continuous-tone photographic output - with an apparent resolution in excess of 4000 dpi.
• Its 36-bit color space is capable of producing 68 billion colors, with edge-to-edge sharpness that no other photographic large-format printer can achieve.

• Your monitor should be properly calibrated & profiled to match print output, preferably with a Monitor Profiling package, such as the X Rite Eye One Display Pro. If not, use the Adobe Gamma utility (Windows) or the Monitor Calibrator utility (Mac). See this post on my blog WITH VIDEO for more recommendations on monitor settings in particular, and Color Management in general.
• A note of caution: You will never get your monitor to be a 100% accurate representation of your print, due to the different physical light properties between your monitor (emitted light) and your print (reflective light), as well as all of the variables inolved. It will never be perfect, but it will be extremely close, eliminating time and waste. Please note that, although we'll strive to steer you in the right direction, we cannot be responsible for your Color Management system or accuracy.
A Master File is where almost ALL of the artistic and creative "blood, sweat & tears"will be poured into an image.
