Retouching

Duggal was an early pioneer in digital retouching transferring the knowledge and craftsmanship of dye and ink directly on to film and print retouching to becoming the first commercial lab in the country to have the then revolutionary real time Shima Seiki computer retouching stations back in the 1980’s. Today we continue the tradition of having the latest and best equipment available staffed by experienced artists. We specialize in professional fashion retouching, product enhancement, CGI product creation, layouts, wedding photo enhancements, photo manipulation and design work from logos to book layouts. We also offer digital professional restoration of old or damaged photographs and can provide customized work such as collages/montages, pop art, background replacements, portrait effects, vignettes, and other special effects.

Contract Proofing
Duggal offers contract proofing to match content and color on press. That includes commercial printers and publication printers. We provide SWOP (Web press standard) and Gracol (Sheet fed press standard)  for any type of press and any type of paper (coated, uncoated, board etc.)  We use state of the art equipment and GMG color management software to simulate the press gain, the shade of white of the paper, the way PMS colors will translate into 4 color process or the way they will look on paper as spot colors.  After completion the color strip printed on the proof is scanned and the system checks the values comparing them to the standard required. Then it generates an acceptance label with the scanned values. We affix the label on the back of the proof for printer reference and reassurance of standard.  In additional to magazine full page and double spread proofs we can produce proofs up to 60 inches wide and 81 inches long, large enough for any offset press. For a more economical option we also offer Fuji Pictro Proofs, which are SWOP standard proofs
