Preparing a file for printing can be tricky if you are not an experienced designer.
There are many factors that can undermine the overall effect of the intended layout. If you want to ensure there are no unwanted surprises, conducting your own step-by-step prepress examination of your design files can save you time and a batch of headaches. It can also save you a ton of money!
We have put together a checklist that outlines the key elements to look for when finalising your file for printing. These will eliminate many of the most common quality issues associated with printing.
