- Make sure your printer can work with Macintosh® files.
- Thoroughly review paper and ink combinations
- “Gang” collateral material (if there is room on the paper).
- It is very beneficial to watch over even a small printing job. Look for page curl, uneven inking, misalignment, etc.
- Be wary of “direct-to-plate” printing. Always ask for a “blue.”
- Only use a “quick print” shop on jobs that do not demand the highest quality (unless you have had good experiences).
- Quantity price breaks occur after the first 1,000 impressions.
- Make sure your printer makes the most of your paper size
- Most “quick print” shops are NOT set up for four-color printing.
- Many larger printing plants primarily do four-color printing.
