With up to date software and late model computers our internal pre-press department insures that your files are properly prepared for the printing process. Fonts are checked, images optimized, links and knife sizes are confirmed. (Please note that pdfs with embedded images limit the optimizing options available to us).
When this “preflight” check is completed, your job is electronically assembled and press proofs are created.
Once you approve the proofs, printing plates, knives, foiling and embossing blocks are made and the job is sent to press
