PAPER LIBRARY

GHP clients are always welcome to browse our paper library. Located in our interior lobby, the paper library, a unique resource, stocks swatch books from a comprehensive range of manufacturers, in three categories: coated, uncoated and specialty, displayed alphabetically by mill. In the unlikely event that the library does not have what you need, our Procurement Manager is available to consult with you and your GHP salesperson to locate the best stock for your project.

PDF EXPORT SETTINGS

For customers who wish to supply GHP with final PDF documents, we suggest a pre-production meeting with our prepress department. The best output setting to use when creating a PDF is dependent upon the production needs of a project. Options include flattened PDFs (PDF/x1a), layered or un-flattened (PDF/X4) and specialized PDF image replacement workflows.
