Print's special know-how
Print's new digital production system is based on the pdf file format. All
documents received from clients are converted to pdf files, in case their
format is something different. Their validity is checked with either Heidelberg–Creon
Prinergy or Scitex Brisque software, and the pages are imposed.
The imposed signatures are then imaged directly on the printing surface:
for offset, they are imaged onto a printing plate with Creon VLF
platesetter, and for gravure, they are imaged onto a printing cylinder
with Scitex LOGO – Hell Helioglischograph engraving machine.
is also one among the first in Europe to digitise the job management. With
Heidelberg-Creon Prinergy, the management data for every job can be
carried along together with the files. Thanks to Prinergy, the pages are
taken as true, checked and normalised pdf files up to the end of the
process, and all the necessary information about proofing, colour
separation, trapping and printing is included in the files. This helps to
ensure for instance that a tabloid newspaper printed on newsprint will not
– even accidentally – be printed with 80 lines/cm screening ruling, as
when printing an art publication on coated paper.
routinely uses automatic colour management. Printer drivers (ppd files)
and ICC profiles can be downloaded from our download
page. Thus our clients can use them also in their own proofings or
even in colour separation calculations, when needed.
has also advanced and versatile data communication facilities. Fast
network connections and several ISDN-based data transfer protocols help
when transferring large job materials, electronic proofs and even
high-resolution images quickly and flexibly between our clients and us.
