The finished product of your imaging process can only be as good as the phototool used to produce it. For this reason, it is imperative that all phototooling must adhere to the highest quality standards available, and often must reflect the implementation of new standards.

New product turn-around schedules of one week or less have become commonplace in the industry. Therefore, complete phototooling must be produced and delivered within two to three days or less, even for the most complicated jobs.

Corporate Services
The Photoplot Store, a new division of the International Phototool Company (est. 1989) has, since 1999, provided its customers with the means to meet the desired goals of delivering the highest quality products on time, and reduced costs.
Product Information
