Prepress

The first step in our production workflow is the processing of your files in our prepress department. Our highly-skilled technicians have a combined 45 years of experience in getting it right. Your files are processed in our state-of-the-art Rampage RIP array, paginated and electronically stripped using Kodak's PREPS software, then output to two different proofers. Our Tekgraph Doubleproof unit produces high-speed duplex proofs, equivalent to what used to be called Bluelines, to allow you to check for pagination and element backup. Our Epson Stylus Pro 9800 Contract Proofer is color-profiled to produce color proofs that accurately represent the color range produced by our Process Color offset presses, so that you can be sure there are no surprises when your job is printed. Once your proofs are approved, they're output to aluminum printing plates, using our Fuji Luxel v9600 platesetter. This machine uses twin Ultraviolet Lasers to image your job with speed and pinpoint accuracy. The job is then entrusted to the capable hands of our Press Department.
