Josh Dewitt & Eva Coates - Factory Design Labs - March, 2012
Thanks again for making time in your busy schedule to come meet with Josh and myself on Wednesday. We both found you to be immensely knowledgeable in color calibration. We extended your SpotOn! reports to our client yesterday in our calibration meeting and they were very impressed and found these reports to be very informative and beneficial. Thanks for setting that up for us and adding to our "ammo" to verify our calibration. Looking forward to working with you again soon. - Eva Coates - Studio Manager

“I am amazed at the variety of work Bill Owen does for his clients-from phenomenal printing on any size job, to color management, to solving IT problems that have left others in the dust and scratching their heads. Elevated Color goes above and beyond what other local and national businesses provide. There is so much behind the scenes work performed to meet his own especially high standards to get each job, impressively right.”

Details of the Recommendation: "We recently went through the G7 certification process with Bill Owen and Elevated Color. We chose Bill because of his technical knowledge and our experience with working with him in the past on setting up color management systems and calibrating our color printers. Bill as usual made the process simple and straightforward and we enjoyed the learning experience. Bill has a knack for teaching and explaining technical information in a way that is very direct and easy to grasp.

Debbie Sammons – www.allpack.com - Prepress Manager, All Packaging Company, Denver, CO - January 2010
We first hired Bill Owen from Elevated Color as a color consultant back in 2003 when we installed our first large format Ink-jet printer. Since then, Bill has been our "go to guy" for color. He has been the driving force in helping both our Prepress and Pressroom people understand and develop house density standards. Last year, we looked to Bill to help us achieve gray balance standards and implement G7 based plate curves. With Bill's "real world" knowledge of the printing process, we were able to avoid the many pitfalls associated with obtaining repeatable contract color. With his guidance and training, we are now a certified G7 master printer. I consider Bills best asset to be his ability to teach and train, explaining details in a way that are both easy to understand and implement. Bills extensive background in printing and pressroom capabilities, along with a trained eye for color really makes him the "Color Guru Guy". With this said, Bill has been a great asset to our color management program here at All Packaging Company and I highly recommend him.

My experiences with elevatedCOLOR on a number of projects over the past several years were very lucrative for me. Their attention to detail on each and every one my needs were without fail, extremely thorough, well documented, timely, and accurate. Their analysis of my color issues, and related software inconsistencies came swiftly and accurately. The cost of their services easily paid for themselves and they became my go-to-guys for keeping my proofing department top notch and on the leading edge of technology. My name is Charles (Rusty) Kitlitz and I supervised the prepress department and art production studio at The Integer Group in Lakewood, Colorado for eleven years. elevatedCOLOR kept all six of our proofing systems extremely accurate and consistent with each other while under the tightest scrutiny. – Rusty Kitlitz
