Prepress and Premedia Services-Our Process Workflow

Digital Prepress Solutions

General Workflow for Pre-press/Pre-flight Checks

 We ensure that the file resolution is 300 DPI or more.
 We ensure that all images are at least 300dpi (to avoid pixelation).
 We ensure that all images are in CMYK (unless otherwise intended).
 We work with CMYK and/or Pantone color swatches for optimal outcomes.
 We use spot colors, metallics, and other special colors if specified when using an offset printing press to handle these special colors.
 We select the image(s) in InDesign or Illustrator and choose "Embed" in the Links palette.
 In Photoshop, we flatten the final artwork or make sure the images are placed as embedded and not linked (in the CC version).
 We export the entire file as a high-resolution image (300 dpi or higher. Formats supported include .tiff, .jpeg, etc).
 Margins - We ensure that important elements like text stay within the specified margins and don't come too close to the edge to mitigate the possibility of them getting cut off.
 Bleed - If an artwork goes all the way to the edge of the page, we extend it past the artboard to prevent a white border from appearing when trimmed to size.
 Crop Marks - We provide crop marks to some printers as a guide to where to trim the paper to the finalized size.
