At the Pre-Press stage of production, our artwork and production teams oversee all that needs to happen before your job goes to print.
We take your digital files and ensure that they are error-free and suitable for printing. Although we don’t proof-read your work, there are a number of things that we need to check to ensure that the file will print correctly and as you intended.
Once our production and design team are happy with the files we then digitally impose them, which basically means setting them up to print at the optimum quality in the correct orientation on the required paper stock.
We will then either send a digital proof copy back to you to double check that you're happy proceed to print, or you can have a hard-copy proof printed and delivered to you (or you can call in to collect it and discuss any issues with us).
Once you've given us the final go-ahead, the files are either sent directly to the press in the case of digital printing or, in the case of litho printing, the necessary printing plates are made up from the files ready for print.
