Step 1: Prepress


One of the most important functions in the process is pre-press production. This stage will ensure that all files are correctly processed in preparation for printing. This includes converting to the proper CMYK color model, finalizing the files, and creating plates for each color of the job to be run on the press.

After designing, a document comes to prepress stage. It is the process of preparing digital files for the printing press - making them ready for printing (pre > before and press > printing on a printing press). Prepress or make-ready tasks will vary depending on file complexity and printing method but some may include:


  1. Double-checking fonts
  2. Making sure graphics are in the right format
  3. Preparing camera ready artwork
  4. Creating color separations
  5. Adding crop marks
  6. Trapping (done to prevent color gaps when colors touch in a layout)
  7. Imposition (putting pages in the right order for printing)
  8. Producing prepress proofs
