PREPRESS

In the Prepress studio we manage a large variety of artwork from the industry standard Adobe Creative Suite to Microsoft Word and Publisher.

We have a large collection of both Apple and PC platforms operated by our friendly Prepress team who are happy to offer help and advice on any technical queries you may have.

Here we also produce hard copy proofs, original artwork, posters and large format displays.

Origination

We operate both 27" Imacs and PCs with all the latest software from InDesign to Acrobat Professional, Enfocus Pitstop and QuarkXpress. Our workflow incorporates Heidelberg's Prinect Cockpit which includes preflight checks and a secure archive system for all our clients' artwork both past and present.

Services such as typesetting, proofreading and altering customer supplied artwork can also be performed.

Proofing

Artwork preflight checks are done as standard along with either a PDF proof or hard copy proof.  For hard copy proofs, unlike many of our competitors, we aim to produce more than just flat sheets. We handcraft printed proofs to look like the finished article where possible providing
a much better visual representation.
