Contact us about this consultant
G7 Expert. Color Management Guru! Prepress and Printing Expert. Certified by many industry leading manufacturers such as GMG, CGS, EFI, Xitron, AGFA, Kodak, Best Color, Ryobi, Idealliance, and many more. I started my own company "Elevated Color, LLC" in March of 2008. We provide Field Service for the printing industry as well as produce Museum Quality Giclee' Prints and Vinyl Banners. Currently in my 29th year in prepress and printing technologies, I spent 19 years doing prepress work including old school typesetting, camera work, pasteup, dot etching, strippping, etc. With the advent of digital prepress, I was fortunate to work with progressive companies that kept up with leading edge technologies. I eventually gravitated toward color management over 20 years ago while employed as a Crossfield 630 scanner operator and Scitex Prisma operator. I've worked in every prepress environment and capacity imagineable including staff management. My most recent experience was working for xpedx/International Paper for the past 9 years as the "Applications Specialist" covering the Rocky Mountain Region from Montana to New Mexico. Based in Denver, Colorado, I have travelled the USA as an installer/trainer of prepress software, hardware and color management systems. I have advanced knowledge and experience in all areas of prepress, printing and color management including pressroom analysis and G7 expert certification. Too much experience to list it all here, so shoot me an email with questions pertaining to your environment. I just may have the tools to help ya!
