Dot Generation Prepress

DOT GENERATION – PREPRESS & DESIGN

Any sharp looking printed piece starts with a good design and well constructed files. It’s always better to avoid problems than to resolve them later – especially when it comes to printing.

Our expert graphic technicians examine every file for potential issues related to: size, resolution, color, die-lines and fonts, and make recommendations if improvements are needed. We support a myriad of applications and print from many file formats that others cannot.

The state-of-the-art technology in our pre-press department allows for seamless integration between your files and the press room. Our technicians go the extra mile, assessing and carrying out whatever changes are needed to make your job problem-free, while communicating regularly on the progress of your project. If you need a project designed from scratch, our creative teams stands ready to turn your ideas into good looking printed pieces.

Dot Generation - Offset Printing

DOT GENERATION – OFFSET PRINTING

Do your printed materials have intricate details that require high image quality, do you need to print a large run for a big customer base, are the overall dimensions of your printed piece too large for a digital press? If so then offset printing might present the most benefits for your project. This traditional ink on paper method of printing is most cost-efficient for long runs and offers a higher degree of quality. While digital printing might have the option for variable data, offset printing is the most flexible method of printing if you are looking to use in-line or off-line finishes and coatings such as varnish, UV or aqueous.

If you have a project that needs high quality color printing where matching spot colors is important, you might also want to look into this method. While digital presses produce colors using a four-color matching process and can often do a good job of getting close to spot colors, offset presses can print using the Pantone® Matching System to provide you with a more accurate color match and can also use metallic inks.

  • Great for large quantities
  • Larger sheet sizes than digital
  • Allows for coatings
  • Can print Pantone colors and metallic inks
  • High image quality
