Get Better Quality with Our Pre-press Tips for Perfect Print Publishing

We have shared a few pre-press tips for perfect print publishing below to help you get better quality print work.



Enquire about the colour spectrum, bleeds, print turnaround time, layout limitations, backgrounds, image formats and over print settings to ensure that you understand how the print work should be presented for perfect print publishing.


Select the Colour Model

If the work is to be digitally printed it will not really matter what colour model you choose, but it will make a huge difference when normal offset printing is used. As such choose where you need colour and select the colour model early on in the project such as RGB, CMYK, single or spot colours.


Page Size

Though you may type your manuscript on A4 size, the actual book or report size may be A5 or A6. It is imperative to select the correct page size before printing to ensure that your page numbers actually correspond. An image may look great on A4, but if your book or report is A5 size the image may be too small for the reader. Select the right paper size beforehand.



If some of the elements must be printed on the page edge you will have to create bleeds, which are the areas where the elements go all the way to the edge of the page. This is relevant for business cards, flyers, brochures or reports. The bleeds are important, because the printers can often not print right to the edge of the paper because trimming must be done. If bleeds are not correctly done, you will end up with thin unprinted edges.
