NPC Prepress Capabilities

Newman Printing Company is committed to establishing a lasting relationship with our clients. We have a vested interest in offering the newest technology to help bring your vision to a reality.

Estimating & Project Management

Our information management system, EFI-PACE, tracks time, material and the status of each job in the shop. This information is used in its estimating program to give accurate price information for future jobs.

File Transfer

Files may be uploaded to NPC prepress department by email or via our File Upload page. There is no size limit on our email, but we prefer only files 5 Mb or smaller be sent this way. Our FTP site is accessible through our website which does not require any special software other than an up to date web browser. We also accept files on Flash Drives, CD’s and DVD’s on both PC’s and Mac’s.

Online Printing

NPC Express is our On-Line ordering and fulfillment program run on and accessed through our web site. It can be used as a catalog and for quick turn repetitive jobs requiring minor type changes.

Workflow

NPC has PDF workflow software that supports CMYK, spot color and black and white output. As with all files, the PDF and the file it is created from must be properly built, or it will not print correctly. We will be happy to provide Distiller Settings files to assist in proper PDF creation.

Our workflow software is Heidelberg’s Prinect with in RIP trapping. Imposition is done on Heidelberg’s Signa workstation.

Newman Printing Company now offers you all the advantages of Computer to Plate. Plate output is on a DS Screen 8000II plate setter on metal plates.

Proofing

NPC uses PDF files as a “soft proof” for our customers to verify color breaks and text. These proofs may not match our color “Contract Proofs” due to monitor calibration variables.

Contract proofs are made on an HPZ2100 color proofer driven by the Heidelberg Prinect RIP. Color correction is by Heidelberg Print Open using an X-Rite DTP 41 Color Spectrophotometer. Digital blacklines are made on an Impo Proof proofer.

File Storage

File storage is on server with a RAID 1 configuration. Older job files are saved to DVD for later use as needed.

We must always remember that no matter how many thousands of copies we produce on any printing job...our customer, and their customers, will look at the only one they have in their hands. Louis M. Newman, Jr.
