The Three p's of PrePress


The pre-press department at J&M is set up to handle all of your file needs. Working on both PC and MAC platforms, our technicians can handle just about any file sent their way. J&M knows that in today’s computer workplace, regular software updates are critical.


Using EFI Color XF proofing software and two Epson printers, J&M is able to give our customers hard proofs that are color calibrated to our press specification.  Our stripping is done electronically with Preps and our trapping and final output is ripped with Rampage giving us extra control and accuracy on every project.


The next step in the preproduction phase is plating.  When your job has been approved it is then output with Direct-to-Plate technology using an AGFA plate processor.  This advanced process increases productivity while keeping J&M very competitive on pricing.  Direct-to-plate also has the advantage of providing first generation dot resulting in no dot gain on the plate and allowing us to maintain our high standards on press.

If you have any questions about setting your file up for production don’t hesitate to contact us.  Our friendly pre-press team will gladly help you out with PDF setting, CMYK vs RGB images, bleeds and any other questions that may arise.  For quick reference you can refer to our convenient PrePress Tips section my clicking here.
