Paper

We print all work on E surface paper which has a fine grain pebble texture. This gives your prints a professional look and feel, showing minimal finger printing.

Guide Prints

For best reprint color, please enclose a guide print and indicate this on the order envelope. If one is not available, please let us know generally how you would like your prints color and density. For standard color and density, guide prints may be left on file. Remakes for color will not be accepted unless a guide was included with the original order. We use your print as a guide print to match unless noted on your order envelope. If indicated, we will match your print for an additional 100% of the print cost, when possible. This service is only available when supplying a proof of the same negative being ordered.

Remakes

In the case of a remake, include the following in a new order envelope: the original envelope, glassine, negative and prints in the condition they were received. We must have this important information in order to reproduce your remake within 48 hours. Remakes at no charge must be returned within 30 days of the invoice date with all pertinent information included. Once an order is invoiced the information for that order is held for 30 days. After that time any remakes will be charged and scheduled as new orders. Remakes returned within the time period but not having all the information will be held until it is provided. For remakes due to shipping damage, call the Customer Service department for the correct procedures.

Digital File Requirements   

Because digital photography is in its infancy and Toco Color Imaging is an experienced digital photo lab, we offer simple guidelines for submission of your digital photographs. Toco can print from files in tiff or jpg format. It is strongly suggested that you keep the original file and send us a copy. Larger file sizes yield better quality prints. If you want to print larger than an 8x10, the tiff should be over 20 megs in size. Oftentimes customers will shoot a jpg and will then make changes to the file, saving it one or more times over. This is not an acceptable practice. Jpg files are compressed files for space storage and emailing, but they are not intended to be an editable format. It is most important that you do not edit a jpg image unless you save it in tiff format first. We have noticed flat, blown out color, random color blotches and jagged edges from jpgs that have been saved one or more times.

To match our system, set your Photoshop® color settings RGB working space as sRGB. When saving a tiff file, save it 8 bit, rgb or grayscale, without LZW compression. If you are working in a Macintosh® or Linux® environment, make sure to save the file extension at the end (.tiff, .jpg) as we work in a Windows® environment and we might not be able to figure out how to open your files! Also, do not use any symbols such as a tilde (~) slash (/ or \), pound mark (#), parentheses or question mark in the file name or the name of the CD or we won’t be able to read them. Files should not be more than 31 characters including extension. If you work in Photoshop®, Corel®, The Gimp® or any other raster-based programs, send only flattened tiff or jpg images to us. This will save room in your media and speed up output times.

Inquire about having your monitor calibrated to match our system. Lab policy is to always strive for good skin tones unless we are told otherwise. Toco accepts digital images via email, FTP, CD-Rom, floppy disks, compact flash, and smart media. There is a $5.00 media charge to open digital files.
