In the Prepress department your design is transformed into carefully structured files to ensure the best possible printed results. Prepress work is essential to iron out any problems with your files so there will be no problems on the presses. Prepress is a skilled trade that calls for extensive industry knowledge and considerable IT troubleshooting skill. Good prepress services underpin the success of many a print job.

Most material that is supplied for print requires substantial reworking in the prepress department before it is suitable for final output to plate. It is the task of Prepress to spot and eliminate any hidden problems in a print job before it gets to the press.

Prepress and the Environment

Use of film and photographic chemicals within our prepress department has been eliminated by the introduction of Computer to Plate Technology. 100% of all metal plates used are collected and recycled. All prepress proofs supplied to clients for print authorization are chemical free digital proofs. We have joined Planet Ark in their quest to recycle printer cartridges and consumables and save these components from entering landfill. We also ensure smaller areas of consumption within prepress are also monitored, such as silver recovery from old film, separating of aluminium cans for donation and recycling of redundant IT equipment.
