Prepress

Superior preparation: how Phoenix keeps its colors flying

We have streamlined our pre-press production process with a workflow that provides seamless processing of your files, including pre-flighting trapping and imposition. Our pre-press color-management system, (and the expert technicians in our dedicated in-house Ink Lab) assure the quality and accuracy of our colors — and yours — actually storing every client’s exclusive profiles across manufacturing platforms, to guarantee consistency with your specifications.

With digital proofs, pre-press adjustments can be faster, more convenient (and less expensive). And final proofs will reflect exactly what you can expect to see on press.

Yet despite the most advanced technology, we believe that superior preparation starts with human skill. For every job you entrust to us, a Phoenix team member will share a proposed plan of action through our operation and personally verify the project’s integrity before sending it to press.

Long-time customers attest: It isn’t simply outstanding technology that sets Phoenix apart — but the way we partner with our clients, that helps them feel comfortable and informed at every stage.
