Digital Pre-press

We have numerous work stations ready to work with any design program and that are cross-linked with equipment to process plates directly from the computer, eliminating the use of film and making the process ten times more efficient. Furthermore, clients may send their materials through a broadband connection to our servers with a capacity to transmit information at 2 MB per second.

Computer to Plate (CTP)

At Offset Multicolor we obtain the highest quality in the creation of plates with our four CTP CREO machines through which we reproduce documents with text, images or special effects between 80 and 300 lines and stochastic screening in 10, 20, 30 and 40 microns.

This system allows us to obtain excellent prints with the following benefits:
  • Zero dot gain on plates
  • A maximum of 2% dot gain on prints with high quality paper
  • Since all our presses have automatic ink levels which prevent variations, we can achieve 100% excellence in color registration
  • 100% excellence with regards to purity in the print and dot reproduction
Furthermore, to ensure optimal chromatic quality, we can convert RGB images into a CMYKGO format using Hexachrome software for prints that require six inks.

To guarantee the best color selection, we use the ORIS Digital Proofing System for Canon printers, adapting to SWOP proofing specifications and standards.

All our work stations have software which allow for color correction and image retouching at 40,000 megapixels.

Reception of materials

Our clients may send their materials physically in the form of positives and/or magnetic devices or electronically through our servers that have the capacity to transmit information at 2 MB per second.
