The CTS Graphic Design and Production department is another creative hub, working with our clients to bring their marketing strategy to life on the tradeshow floor. The graphic design department is Mac-based, using the most current design software available. For client convenience, and to facilitate rapid transfer of graphic proofs, CTS maintains an internet-based FTP site, on which each client is assigned a username and password. This permits protected, rapid communication of incoming files from the client or layouts and concepts from graphic design for the client to visually approve.
CTS can store and retrieve information on CD-ROM, DVD, 100M and 250M Zip, 3.5” floppy disks, 1G and 2G jazz disks, 44M and 88M SyQuest drives.
