Conventional Printing Prepress Services
Chromagraphics began as a prepress house and that expertise with color and prepress technology had carried over when we entered into the printing business over 20 years ago. Through the entire evolution of desktop publishing until today we have stayed at the forefront of prepress prowess in the region. We accept the widest range of files from clients in the area. Chromagraphics utilizes dual workflows for MAC and PC initiated application files and also has an automated pdf workflow. It is important for us to stay up to date with all of the latest software on both platforms and carry the expertise to troubleshoot and correct your submitted files within all of them. We offer press fingerprinted contract proofs as well as low-resolution digital Dyluxes for our conventional printing projects.
Digital Prepress Services
As digital printing has overlapped within our prepress area, we have become experts in complex variable content printing and can offer our expertise to you so you’ll get the most bang for your buck with your next variable content printing job.It’s fairly easy to setup even for very complex variable digital content. The most important first step is to make sure your data file is consistent with its structure and integrity. You also want to make sure your data file has column headers and those column header names are carried over and consistently named within your InDesign document where the variable content will be dynamically imported in. Finally, on more complex variable content projects that have several or many versions of copy, graphics or content that those differences are setup in different layers and those layer names are contained in a column within your data file. If those simple steps are followed you can create the most complex variable printing job that your mind can imagine. It’s really a piece of cake!
