The Pre-press studio is equipped with the very latest front-end Apple Mac and PC workstations, all with calibrated monitors and running up to date versions of industry standard page layout, pdf editing and graphic applications.
Pre-press production begins with a pre-flight scan, this examines the supplied pdfs checking for potential production errors. Our highly skilled team of reprographic technicians identify and resolve most issues found within these files. They have the expertise to edit pdfs and generate industry standard print optimized pdfs from original source files.
Data accepted via: Online file Transfers systems, FTP, EQUIOS, email up to 20MB, DVD or CD.
For clients who need to upload and approve pdfs out of hours, we have the Advent 24-7 Online Print Shop. This upload preflight and approval portal gives you the tools as a client, to check colour percentages, see plate separations, compare revised pages, check pagination via the digital book proof page turner and download ripped pdfs. This HTML5 driven system enables complete flexibility and freedom to upload and approve anywhere on any device. Visit the Client Area page on this website to access this facility.
Our PDF workflow system automatically generates “ripped” pdf proofs - these can be emailed to the client or viewed and approved via EQUIOS online.
We can also produce high resolution FOGRA certified digital proofs. The proofing devices Advent use are colour managed to enable a colour accurate reproduction on coated or uncoated surfaces.
In addition to this, we can supply proofs to simulate gloss or matt laminations that may be applied to the final printed product.
We are happy to supply colour conversion profiles and are always willing to advise you on the very best way to set up artwork prior to print.
We're able to scan original photographs producing superior digital images.
