PROCESS

platesProcessing of Litho Plates

Good Old Printing provides exclusively, a litho printing service. As our clients are exceptionally security conscious, we produce our own litho plates in house for each print.
We ensure thorough proofing and testing of each plate prior to the commencement of the print-run, to ensure optimal accuracy and the timely delivery of the print order to our client.

background mainColor Management

Accurate Color Management is imperative to maintaining brand integrity and this is therefore a key element of our print production process. To ensure that we provide our clients with an accurate and consistent color representation, our printer color profiles are accurately calibrated to international print standards. This ensures that we are able to print the correct intended color for our clients, regardless of the print machine being used. In addition, our color management process ensures that the printed color is consistent from one print-run to the next.

checkingIn-line Print Proofing

During the print-run, we check the quality of the printed sheets at selected intervals. These checks are benchmarked against our signed-off print-proof and re-checked for accuracy and precision. Accuracy often relates to the copy on either the folded carton box or the package insert. We will ensure that each letter is printed perfectly and that there are no spelling errors or misprints. In terms of precision, we check that sizing, orientation and the placement of the print on each sheet is standard to ensure consistent quality throughout the batch.
