Description

With over 20 years of experience both behind a squeegee and behind the computer screen we have ample experience to separate your artwork into the most efficient and production friendly separations possible. We can accurately read your file and take the guess work out of which separation process will give you the best results. We have numerous separation tools and tricks at our disposal that will translate into more predictable results, faster press setup time and brighter more colorful prints. And the best part is when you work with us, we work with you, yes we do all the separations. We do not outsource any part of the separation process. Any and all separations and art revisions are done by us, any needs or concerns you have won't be lost in translation. Also equally as importantly, is that we will never use or share your files or information with anyone.

How To Get Started:

  • Pick the type of separation you would like us to do and add it to your cart. We offer basic, basic with halftones, complex and complex +. You can read more about each separation below. or if you are not sure please email us the design at: info@filmdirectonline.com
  • In the notes section please let us know how you would like it separated, ie; Simulated process, true process, spot color etc... If you're not sure, no problem we will contact you before we move forward. Also let us know if you need the files halftoned and what angle and frequency you need.
  • Once we receive the file please allow 24 to 48 hrs turn around. If you don't hear from us that we means we have everything we need to get started. otherwise we will contact you with any questions.
  • When the separations are complete you will receive a link to download the files along with instructions and color call outs, sequence, and suggested mesh count.

We're now offering four types of color separation services, basic spot color, basic+ half tones,  complex and complex+. What's the difference?

    Bryan at Film Direct saves my ass again

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Sep 2017

    Film Direct supplies us with working 6 color simulated process separations that consistently result in happy customers. Which is pretty awesome considering we're usually printing at 2am to meet tomorrow's deadlines, with little time to make adjustments. With turn times getting shorter, it's great to have help we can rely on. Thanks!

    Outstanding level of service...

    Posted by Ray West on 11th Sep 2013

    This kind of multi-color printing is new to me, so I had a lot of questions. Luckily, Bryan was very patient and very helpful. He took the time to get my artwork to the perfect state! I definitely use this service again!
