  Traditional Pre-Press
Camera, stripping and proofing are important steps in the production of your job. Although a great number of our jobs are now processed digitally, the graphics camera is still busy. The photo to the left is our Acti 20"x24" horizontal camera with a range of 23% to 300%. Film is processed with our Kodamatic 710 automatic processor.
  Stripping, Plating and Burning
Our pre-press equipment also includes three precision stripping tables, three precision punches, two plate makers, and a plate processor. The Silvermaster platemaker creates paper plates for short to medium runs and is ideal for camera ready artwork. No negatives, stripping or metal plates required. Dan is creating a paper plate using the Slivermaster platemaker.

What is Camera ready artwork?
Camera Ready Artwork is a clean black and white laser print of the job that will be duplicated. NO SCREENS or Photos, only solid text and images. Please call to verify if your job can be produced from Camera Ready Artwork.
