eProofer Online Proofing [Kodak Insite]

Online proofing has established itself as a secure and extremely efficient tool in affording clients extended lead times for file submissions as well as offering immediate proof approval, depending on the job complexity.

Content Conversion

Our high speed document scanning allows for hardcopies of printed material to be scanned to PDF format. We specialise in the scanning and reproduction of printed hardcopy, whereby we scan and clean up text and covers to high print standards. This includes text clean up, straightening, imprint updates and colour separations (where necessary).

 

If editable text is required for revisions, we employ optical character recognition software [OCR] to produce editable Word documents. This is especially valuable when original electronic material is untraceable and all you have is hardcopy.

Typesetting

Using our powerful content formatting system we generate final layout and print ready documents from supplied hardcopy, electronic manuscripts and client databases. Our specialty in this area is handling huge volumes of text and data in producing directories, law journals and government documents with embedded footnotes, indexing and referencing included.

 

The benefit to the client is exact repeatability of the project style and formatting. Revisions to content can be carried out on the original source documents and databases, therefore saving a vast amount of time and cost in recreating or updating entire projects.

Proof Reading

We offer a reading service with vast experience in the industry across various product formats. In addition to checking spelling, grammar and punctuation, we focus on confirming line-ups, back-ups, live area uniformity, indents, margins and numerous other print layout consistencies are met; thus offering customers peace of mind before going to print.
