Pre Press & Proofing

The process of printing goes far beyond the proper placement of ink on paper, and Printing Concepts prides itself on its state of the art pre-press and proofing capabilities.

“We know the world is continually evolving technologically and we do everything we can do to keep one step ahead so we are be able to answer our customers’ questions before they have the chance to ask them. We work hand-in-hand with our customers’ art departments and agencies. If a customer has an idea with no graphic or layout support, we can help there as well,” said Jim Colvin, Creative Director at Printing Concepts.

Printing Concepts establishes a timeline based on customer needs in order to ensure timely delivery.
