- After adding an electronic job ticket to your project, the project goes into pre-flight, where the file integrity is checked and any problems are fixed.
- Next, it goes to pre-press. Pre-press is where retouching, page assembly, proofing, and scanning happens before the project goes to press. Using their Epson contract color proofs, they are able to match the colors on the proof to the press, so that the full effect of the project is colorful, and exactly like the proof. They are transferred to a digital file.
- Digital plate setting is the next step. Plates are made swiftly, and accurately, to make sure that you get your printed items on time, without losing any of the precision. Using their digital printing press, the digital file is ripped and exposed to the plate material. This gives SpringDot more control over the sharpness and quality of images.
- Finishing - Once the project is completed, it is archived and cataloged for quick retrieval.
