Along with our award winning graphic design studio is our state of the art prepress department. Producing high quality printing requires starting with a high quality printing plate. Our plating department uses thermal computer to plate technology that can produce standard screening or the highest quality of stochastic random spot screening. The thermal plating process produces a much sharper dot that allows us to use finer line screens over other plating processes. The shape of the dot on the plate is very important in that this defines how sharp the image will print. The difference between producing a dot with thermal verse a light source is the shoulder or edge of the dot. The dot produced with a thermal source has an edge that is much more defined and sharper. What this does on press is it gives the image a more defined line where the ink and water meet producing a much sharper image.
