How It’s Printed: Brochures | Online Printing by

PrintPlace specializes in high-quality, quick turn 100% offset brochure printing. From the moment your order is sent to press. A team of qualified printing experts begin producing your order. First, our art technicians review your job for several aspects, such as size, embedded fonts, resolution, and bleeds. Once your artwork passes this review, your job is passed on to prepress. The prepress technician’s job is to assemble orders for maximum printing efficiency. Yours, as well as multiple customer’s jobs, are grouped together for properties, such as paper stop, size, quantities and processing options. Several customers’ orders are placed into a single group for greatest efficiency. Once assembled, the jobs are sent to plating. Here the plate maker sends each job to a thermal infrared imaging machine. Aluminum plates containing an infrared sensitive emulsion load into the plate setter where it wraps around the imaging drum. The drum spins at a dizzying 1,000 RPM’s as an infrared laser exposes an image onto the plate. From there, the now-exposed aluminum plate moves to the processor. A four-step treatment is applied: developer chemical, water, buffing and gumming for further scratch protection. A plate for each color in the CMYK profile are printed for transfer to the press. PrintPlace utilizes three Komori offset printing presses for all of our printing. Maxed out, the Komori press can print a stunning 16,000 sheets per hour. The pressman takes the aluminum plates and hangs them on ink units of each corresponding color. Clean sheets are fed from the back of the machine. A series of conveyors and rollers rapidly shoot each sheet under cyan, magenta, yellow and black ink units. The rollers evenly distribute ink to the plates, which offsets the ink to a blanket roller that in turn applies ink to the paper. Coated sheets are then fed through our aqueous coating unit and run across heating elements for drying. Every few hundred sheets, the pressman pulls the sheet for analysis. He scans a color bar along the bottom edge for color accuracy. Visual inspection is also needed needed to check for highest quality. After printing, the sheets move to the cutter. A large industrial cutting machine slices up to 1,000 sheets. Each job is then separated for transfer to their particular finishing processes. From there, your brochures are fed into a scoring and folding machine. A conveyor allows for continuous loading of jobs for maximum efficiency. After the worker activates the machine, each brochure shoots towards the folder plates where up to four folds are applied along with necessary scoring. The result; a high quality, quick turn brochure ready to ship to your door. Log onto today, to get your project started. Or call us at 877-405-3949.
