prepress
With the introduction of better software and equipment what was once the responsibility of a whole department of people is now down to one or two designers. Scary don't you think?
So we make sure that this last stage of production before it hits the press is still given the upmost attention. This is essentially the final proofing stage prior to an expensive mistake if something crucial is overlooked.
If you are suppling files we suggest you look over our Prepress Check List and Suppling Artwork file as it could help you avoid both time delays or additional costs.
When planning your job we are more then happy to answer any of your prepress queries. We can also supply standard sizes, die forms, how to setup files for particular processes and more, so don't hesitate to call and ask for someone in the
Talbot Press art studio.
