Design for Print

Summer Solstice Book

Design for print is what In Color has been doing longest. Since 1990 when we acquired our first Canon digital press and Iris Graphics printer, In Color has been making creative designs specifically for print. Just a couple years later, we purchased a Scitex imagesetter, with which we made hundreds of color separations monthly for international publications. Creating graphic designs that separate and print correctly requires an understanding of ink limits, trapping, bleeds, dot gain, builds, knockouts and overprints.

In Color can produce your graphic designs from start to finish, or we are happy to work directly with your in-house designers. We'll assist with the technicalities so that they can focus on their creativity.

There are plenty of creative artists who can make a design that looks great on their display; that doesn't mean it will print as intended. Most of our customers favor no-drama talent, with seasoned production experience. We ensure that designs work the first time on-press with no costly surprises. Our extensive print experience includes both lithography and serigraphy.
