Commercial Printing Overview
We combine state-of-the-art technology with professional craftsmanship to offer our clients fine quality commercial printing at a cost-competitive price. Whether you utilize our in-house creative design service or provide us with a print-ready file, you'll be pleased with the quality, price, on-time delivery, and personal attention your print project receives from start to finish.
The Image Group has invested in cutting edge prepress technology to save you time and money while ensuring your satisfaction with the end result of your printed piece. Pre-flight checks avoid costly delays by ensuring the successful output of your files. When time is critical, ripped PDF proofs streamline the process for an efficient, cost-saving option. Our direct-to-plate technology transfers computer files directly to the plate for a more cost-efficient process that preserves lithographic quality. It's also more environmentally friendly than film based printing.
Our commercial printing division specializes in fine quality offset sheet-fed printing along with a full service bindery. Our state-of-the-art conventional and waterless printing presses can handle your most demanding multi-color or single color printing projects. We utilize waterless technology to achieve better print quality including improved color consistency and saturation, detail reproduction, and overall sharpness of printed images. We also offer aqueous coating that protects your printed piece with an attractive, durable coating.
Commercial Printing - Start to Finish!
The Image Group is committed to ensuring your satisfaction with the end results and final cost of your printed projects. Although planning a printed project may seem overwhelming, we'll walk you through the entire process to make sure your goals, deadlines, and budget requirements are met.
Step 1: Project Planning
Think through your project. Decide the purpose of your printed piece and your budget. Determine your intended audience, content message, photos and artwork needed, number of pages, print quantity, and deadlines.
Step 2: Receive A Detailed Quote
Meet with your Image Group account manager. Share with him/her the information that you decided upon in Step 1. He/she can provide you with cost-saving ideas and suggestions to help you achieve your desired results in the most cost-effective manner. Your Image Group account manager will then provide you with a detailed quote and expected delivery date.
Step 3: The Design Process
Review the quote to make sure you understand the price and specifications. Your Image Group account manager will thoroughly explain any questions. Once you sign the quote, we're ready to begin. Gather all the information and materials needed to create your printed piece including photos, artwork, files, and content information. If you're utilizing our creative design services, our graphic designers will provide you with a concept design for your approval. Your Image Group account manager will work with you to make any changes and to finalize the design. If providing us with a print-ready file, our prepress department will run a pre-flight check to make sure your file is in order and ready to go.
Step 4: Prepress & Printing
Once the design and content are finalized or the pre-flight check is completed, you will be provided with a color proof or ripped PDF for final approval. Once approved, your print project is sent to the press for printing, then onto the bindery for final finishing and delivery.
