Pre-Press Studio

Our studio is at the forefront of technology, handling all types of files to produce the client’s proofs. All our colour proofs are colour profiled to the printing presses so that clients can approve their proofs with confidence. Printing plates are produced using the latest computer to plate technology that ensures ultra sharp images and smooth tint work. The studio uses a pre-flight checking system that eliminates file glitches and differences between the digital proofs seen by the client and their printed jobs.

Out client’s print files and then stored and backed up to secure Removable Hard Drives and off-site servers for a minimum of three years. Reprints or file updates and easily processed with minimum fuss to the client.

All PC and Mac software packages are used and updated to the latest version to keep up with the latest file formats used by our clients. We are fully conversant with transfer of data via all upload software and FTP sites using fast upload Broadband. Additionally, we offer all clients full asset and data management storage on our secure server.

Because we produce high-resolution proofs using the latest digital colour proofing units, there are no materials to throw away if your designer or advertising company have made a typographical error or bad choice of colour. We will do the corrections as part of the inclusive price quoted – so no one needs to get ‘fired’ for being human!
