Prepress Capabilities

 

GHP provides full prepress services from loose color separations to fully imposed plates.

 

Digital Photography

Using state-of-the-art equipment, our digital photography studio captures images of unparalleled quality and consistency. Our expertise extends to creative concept photography, product photography, precise color matching, and direct digital captures of art and other material than cannot be drum-scanned.

 

High Resolution Scanning (drum and flatbed)

Using high resolution drum and flatbed scanners, GHP creates digital files from reflective art or transparencies. These files may be stored on virtually any media in virtually any file format.

 

File Modification and Image Editing

We perform modification and editing from basic size re-rendering to complex retouching and compositing. We also convert files from one format to another.

Proofing

Our front-end color management system, tuned by our professional color staff, provides the most accurate proofing available anywhere in the industry, ensuring a consistent and reliable target for on-press matching. Our ability to proof on uncoated substrates sets us apart from the competition

 

Automated Workflow

GHP’s automated, PDF-based workflow delivers enhanced speed (faster editing and proofing cycles); improved process control; exceptional flexibility; enhanced communication (multiple, simultaneous users); and output consistency and predictability.

 

Imagesetting/Platesetting

We have complete in-house platesetting capabilities. When plates are to be imaged outside, we provide files to printers that meet the requirements of virtually any CTP system. Most importantly, we provide the expertise to minimize output problems associated with pages before they are set in final format.

 

Database Publishing Services

We provide complete design, programming and keystroking of catalogs, price lists, manuals and other material—for both printing and Internet applications—using our digital presses, or database publishing tools.

 

Typography

From annual reports to product catalogs, we provide expert typesetting and proofreading services to publishers and designers.
