Services Overview

    Pre-Press

    Upon receiving your order, Southwest Offset Printing initiates a thorough process to prepare your product for printing. Here in our 100% digital prepress department, your files are checked and double-checked to ensure that they contain all of the elements necessary for a successful print run. Elements checked during this stage include proper formatting, fonts, image resolution, image color, margins, and bleeds. Once you approve your product proof, the project is ready to proceed to our brand new (as of Jan 2017) and state-of-the-art Kodak chemical-free platemaking devices. The plates come out of these machines onto the conveyor belt and are automatically bent and lined up according to which press they will be going to. Before leaving prepress they will be checked one last time to ensure all content on the plates is correct.

    Press

    Our award-winning press crews operate on the best machines in the business. In our heatset division, where we produce all of our coated paper jobs (we can also run 50#, 60#, and 70# offset stocks on these presses), we utilize Goss M-600 presses. These presses come with every bell and whistle available to ensure the best, consistent quality and high throughput. We are well equipped to handle a wide range of demanding 4-color print jobs and jobs needing PMS colors, varnish, and UV applications. Click the link below to learn more!

    The newspaper division at SOP is easily the best in California. The “openweb” presses in this division have 48-units each (12 towers and 18 webs) allowing us to print large page counts, loaded with beautiful color, and print it fast. They use camera systems to monitor and control color and registration, and are operated by printing industry journeymen, many with 20+ years experience. Click the link below to learn more!
