Industry Trained

Way back in 1990, after having spent 5 years at Art College, OND, HND and MA qualified in Graphic Design and illustration I then moved into the world of print and pre-press.

It was back in the early 90s where I learnt all about colour management, plate making, film scanning, imagesetters and drum scanning and was trained by Fuji, Heidelberg, ICG on High End Drum Scanners and maintenance.

As the Pre-Press Industry died with the onset on Mac Computers, Computer to Plate Technology and Digital Cameras the print companies stopped using Scanning equipment and all repro companies went bust. I began to save these large industrial scanners from which I had been using for all these years from an early grave and started to put them to use for my own work.

Currently I am one of the only High End dedicated Scanning Service Providers with a full Repro and Print Production Background in the UK with a solid 30 year background in art, design, scanning and print.

Industrial Scanning

We own the largest collection of Professional Fuji Scanners still in use today in the UK. With a combined DPI of over 35,000.

We have been involved in the professional Design, Reprographics and Print Industry for over 28 years and still heavily involved with print companies today offering specialist services as well as graphic / web design, high quality printing and 3D printing.

We are not one these companies that have bought a scanner to scan our families slides and then decided to offer a scanning service to supplement the pension.

We are not photographers that have bought a scanner to scan their film and then offer the service to other photographers, when you give Karmaan a scanning project you have 30 years industry strength scanning expertise, we know exactly what size files you will require for ANY given output whether it’s for Giclee Printing, Vinyl Banner, Fine Art Printing or simply home inkjet prints / photo prints.

We have been using High End Professional Scanners on an everyday basis costing £160,000+ since the early 90s so we have acquired an exceptional knowledge of what good scans look like. We haven't just bought a Nikon Consumer Coolscan and started a scanning business, or offer a film Developing service and Image to disk at the same time, these are low quality services that we know you will not want.

We are not self taught in scanning and colour management but trained by Fuji, ICG, Heidelberg, Highwater, Kodak and Screen on systems costing upwards over £200,000

Matt was studio manager in charge of the UKs largest Heidelberg Speedmaster colour printing company churning out millions of Compact Disc covers and inner booklets for EMI and Virgin.

All the scanners are maintained by Matt, who has extensive knowledge on all his machines.
