Working with colour can be complicated and confusing… but it doesn’t have to be! Visit our Colour Management page for the basics you need to know. Or, if you want to learn more, we also offer onsite colour seminars that go deeper into the concept and application of colour theory.

File Management with Image Planroom

Hosted by TR Trades, eProject allows you to easily manage all of your project files in one central location. Most FTP sites are not robust enough for large project files, which is why Vancouver’s architects and developers utilize our eProject software.

“Trades has been our large-format printing supplier for the past two years and has consistently met our delivery deadlines. We are very happy with their service. Carla and her entire team (from delivery, to production, to customer service) are very RESPONSIVE. They treat our orders both small and large with professionalism and urgency. Rather than blindly printing what files are submitted, they take the time to review our documents and will contact us to clarify details or to offer suggestions for improving print quality. When dealing with tight timelines, we feel fortunate to be working with Carla and her team of dedicated staff to help us deliver a quality print set for our clients.”
