The prepress segment covers different methods and processes of preparation of printing products (preparation of data, layout, image editing, color management, impositioning etc.), for production of artwork masters (PDF-file) or printing plates dependent on the respective following printing process.
- Digital proof (half tone proof)
- Digital screening proof (dot proof)
- Artwork master (film, stencil, plate)
- Preparation of screened data (separated 1-bit data)
ColorGATE addresses versatile prepress processes as well as different printing processes and systems (screen printing press, film printers, CTS system, offset press) with powerful software solutions that integrate together with the Productionserver 7 into a smooth workflow ensuring an excellent PDF data handling, color management and profiling. In this way, the printing process is considerably simplified and shortened. At the same time high quality products can be offered at the best possible price, independently of the printing method.
