Preparing, Producing and Delivering Full Service Printing Solutions

If you need anything printed, we’ve got you covered: preflight, image assembly, prepress quality control, paper, press capabilities, press quality control, finishing, shipment, fulfillment and/or mailing (including personalization). If you prefer your information produced in digital media, our solutions will meet those needs, too.

We understand the important role that collateral plays in the success of your business, and that’s why we teamed up as a preferred marketing partner with Richards Graphic Communications, Inc., a trusted and established leader in the printing industry. Together, we serve clients throughout the United States, Canada, Central and South America, Europe and Asia.

The following is an outline of the various preflight steps performed when we receive your files to ensure everything is OK before production starts.

  1. Files are first checked to ensure they are virus free
  2. Text and images are checked for proper placement according to the specifications
  3. Type fonts used in the file are checked next
  4. Photos are checked for proper resolution and placement
  5. PMS and process colors used in the file are compared with the specifications
  6. Transparency and gradients are checked and flattened for imaging
  7. PDF proofs are e-mailed to you; OR
  8. Digital color proofs are sent to you for final approval

  1. Retouching of photographs for color balance and tone reproduction
  2. Special effects
  3. Image manipulation and assembly
  4. Electronic RIP and trapping
  5. Electronic page imposition
  6. Digital color proofing
