Colour means everything to us!

Based in Shoreditch, London, Rhapsody has teams of highly trained colour retouchers with years of experience in product swatch matching. Every image that is supplied to us is reviewed, converted, masked and colour swatch matched with a heavy level of QC throughout. Together with scalable staff numbers and incredibly smart online and technical workflows, no project is too small or too large for us to handle.
