Staccato® Screening

A new printing experience awaits you with Staccato®. Photographic reproduction in print has been hampered for many years by the methods used to create an optical illusion of continuous tone. With the digital age of print preparation came a more effective technology, known as FM screening or stochastic screening. At Arkansas Graphics, we have taken that technology one stage further by employing Kodak’s Staccato® software.

This third generation of photo reproduction software provides Arkansas Graphics with all the tools needed to accurately and effectively reproduce high definition images.

With Staccato® software, images will leap from the page and look as close to real photographs as print can produce.
