Your Files Are Processed though State-of-the-Art Software and Equipment

prepress4All files are converted to either EPS or PDF and rasterized through our state-of-the-art Rampage RIP System, trapped and output to our FUJI Javelin 2400 dpi Computer to Platesetter. Plates are then developed and processed (shown at right) and readied for the press. Our in-house prepress experts preflight your files, review layouts for proper bleeds, measurements, placement of elements, and impose pages into signatures if necessary.

Need a brochure or catalog reprinted? No problem - we back-up and store your electronic files and printing plates for up to two years!

Your Choice of Proofs

What type of proof do you need? Grit can provide you with soft proofs (PDF) or hard proofs - matchprint-quality color proofs and digital color bluelines which are imposed, folded, trimmed and stitched. Hard copy proofs are usually created and sent back to you the very same day we receive your files! Have a tight deadline? We will gladly e-mail you a PDF proof for even faster content approval!
