Prepress

Files saved in PDF format are preferred. In some cases, sending files in their native formats can work. The prepress area supports applications commonly used in the printing industry and by the majority of its customers in such instances. Contact the prepress supervisor for information about setting up your files. This will help you avoid output problems that could cost time and money. We support the following programs:
