Along with the latest technology and software and equipment, Williams & Heintz Map Corp. is still capable of editing, proofing, and printing from film. The man-hours involved, to edit and update a film job, can be much less than the thousands of man-hours required to digitize a whole new map.

This is why, unlike the rest of the commercial printing industry, we as map printers, have held onto the cameras to provide this service to our customers: film output from files up to 47″ x 63″ is still available in addition to standard CTP. We can even combine digital correction copy with film based layers.
