GRACoL and FOGRA29L, industry standards

Enjoy the most advanced technology in digital proofs. GMG ColorProof Proofing Software, Epson 9900 Printer and Xrite Spectroproofer Spectrophotometer: the state of the art for certified proof production. Standard GRACoL for coated and uncoated papers and standard FOGRA29L for offset papers and ecological papers such as Enviro100. Our proofs make it possible to judge colors as they will be printed on press. We also offer virtual PDF proofs. This proof offers the same benefits as our physical proofs (you will see trapping and overprints). It is easily transmitted over the Internet. The correctness of the colors will depend on the screens but when the time is short, this type of proof can be very useful!

Imposing on a press sheet

In order to reproduce a given document at the lowest possible cost, more than one page at a time is usually printed on a press sheet. We will regroup these pages taking into account several parameters: the format of the document, the printing, the number of colors, the presence or the absence of bleed, the paper used, the type of finishing or binding, the format of the press, and finally the image that must be reproduced. Depending on the particularities of the document and the specificities of the reproduction mode, the imposition will be made accordingly. An imposed form will therefore include several pages aligned in an apparent disorder, for the reader. It is at folding and assembling that the pages will return to their reading order.
