The minute you say go we pre-flight your files and verify that all necessary components are present. These include linked images, fonts, finished size(s), resolution, and color separations.
Once pre-flight is successfully completed, we lay out your files for press and generate an electronic proof for you to approve.
After approval we provide a schedule and get to work transforming your digital masterpiece into the physical. This entails ordering paper, dies, plates, foil, & ink.
Depending on the specifics of your project there may be a press check scheduled. It’s a great opportunity to view your project on press just before it runs, and offers you the opportunity to dial in impression level & ink density.
Your project will then make a final pass through bindery. Finishing might include precision post-trimming, edge painting, drilling, duplexing, gilding, or even outsourcing for envelope conversion.
