How Prepress Professionals Can Help You

Prepress is a terminology in the publishing and printing industries that is used to refer to procedures and processes that take place after the print layout has been created up until the printing is about to start. A printing plate is manufactured, in the case of Litho printing. Another process is the image carrier after which the material is made ready to be mounted on the printing press. A print file of high quality is also done after texts, photographs and images have been adjusted. In present times, either native application files or PDF are produced with the aid of applications like QuarkXPress and Adobe Creative Suites amongst others. You can find a prepress operator to assist you on a freelance basis on Guru.

Prepress experts use this process to make any corrections. Material is checked for correct text layout, visible and is spilling out of the margin. It is also here that pictures are checked to ensure that they are properly placed and of the correct size. Where there are issues with text and images, adjustments are made. The prepress process therefore gives opportunity to improve on the final printed job and achieve as close to perfection as possible. It is also during this process that the final file, known as the print file, that is used for printing the work is created. Pre-press operators are responsible for importing files into the appropriate format, setting up printing presses, produce films, plates and electronic proofs too. Hiring freelance pre-press technicians can be done on Guru.
