Pre-Press Services

An integral part of our print process, Federal Direct’s Pre-Press department helps your staff with the planning and organization of your campaign or project.

  • Our operators utilize state-of-the-art digital color-management and imposition software as part of our Computer-to-plate (CTP) workflow for print production.
  • Client file Pre-Flighting is employed to ensure all necessary elements are received prior to beginning the job
  • We employ a full-time Proofreader, providing assurance that your work will be free of errors

Digital Press-Proofs

The phrase WYSIWYG – What You See Is What You Get – is now a commonplace acronym. Originally referring to user-interfaces in IT applications, it also describes Federal Direct’s precise Press Proof matching system.

  • Federal’s digital proofing system is press-calibrated & certified to ensure super accurate and dependable color reproduction from proof to print.
  • We use the same artwork files to generate both the proof and printed piece. This guarantees that your approved proof will exactly match the printed piece that we produce.

Creative Services

Whether you need adjustments to existing art or full creative development, Federal Direct’s team of talented graphic artists and designers are available to assist. We can add to an existing creative effort, or help develop it from scratch. Take advantage of our experienced Print & Form Engineering staff to develop unique custom print pieces to increase response.

Collaborative Proofing System

Coordinating multiple proof approvals requiring several sign-offs can be a difficult and costly process. Federal Direct’s On-Line Proofing system is an excellent tool to effectively manage the proofing workflow required for complex projects or campaigns. With various authorization levels and capabilities, the system can be tailored to suit your particular client support structure.
