Here is a complete list of prepress services at Stoughton. These services include:
Stoughton Printing Co. provides free “Pre-Flight” services before costly proofs and printing plates are generated. We examine client supplied files to determine that graphics are laid out to the proper specification, dieline, or template. We also confirm that all fonts and graphics have been provided and are properly linked. If any of these items are missing or are incorrect, we notify the client before we proceed. Customer alterations and corrective measures can be done upon request in a timely manner for a reasonable charge.
To minimize issues on press, Stoughton Printing Co. provides two proofing stages:
• Adobe Acrobat PDF “soft proofs” are e-mailed to the client for Preliminary Approval. These PDF proofs are not for color accuracy, but are best suited for checking content. It is the client’s responsibility to review the PDF and e-mail back either changes or approval for the output of full-size digital color proofs.
• Full-sized digital color proofs are generated and submitted to the client for Final Approval. Our digital proofing system is color calibrated to our press equipment. Its output provides an accurate representation of the final printed piece. Again, it is the client’s responsibility to review the proof content and color. Once approved, the project will be outputted to printing plates and printing.
Clients can also schedule a Press Check to view a project on press before it prints. Stoughton Printing Co. grants clients 30 minutes of press okay time, but additional charges will accrue thereafter. Please call or e-mail us for details.
