What is prepress?

Prepress is a term used in the commercial printing industry that involves the process of creating a print layout to the final printing. The digital prepress accepts electronic information and turns it into an output suitable for your printing needs.

How it works

Solo Printing combines a fully electronic G7 Master Certified Workflow with high speed digital prepress, digital proofing and direct-to-plate imaging. Our teams of trained prepress technicians are experienced in all desktop publishing software, ensuring that the project you envision will be the product we deliver.

Prepress Printing Basics

The prepress phase of the print process begins once the files have been submitted to the printer. A high-quality printed piece takes more than just stunning artwork and design layout. What most print buyers don’t know is, what you see on a computer screen is not necessarily what ends up being translated to paper. This is why a highly trained and experienced prepress department is vital to the printing process. Our prepress team is available 24 hours to assist you with any design issues and answer questions. We take a proactive stance in making your job right.
