Ad Prep Service Options at MGTL

Media Graphics provides many pre-press and ad prep service services. For a solution tailored to your specific needs, please contact us for a free consultation.

Contract proofing only: Upload the same file(s) intended for your publication or vendor through the "Send A File" function on this web site. When ordering a Kodak Digital Matchproof specify the line screen and bright white, off-white, or simulated newsprint base. This service is an economical way to provide SWOP halftone proofs to your publication or vendor for clients who are experienced with preparing final print-ready files.

Proofing and verification: Upload your files through the "Send A File" function on this web site. Provide the name of the vendor or publication and the insertion or print date. We will verify size, ink density, etc. through SRDS and/or by calling the publication or vendor. If you already have a spec sheet or vendor contact information please include it with your file upload. If your file does not meet the specifications we will alert you to the problems before proofing and provide an estimate for MGTL to make the changes. There is a nominal charge for the verification process.

Full-service ad prep: We can scan, retouch, color correct, assemble, size and prepare materials to your publication or vendor's requirements. MGTL offers a variety of pre-press proofing options plus press proofs and reprints and can supply these file formats: PDF/X-1a, TiffIt, .EPS, .TIFF, .PSD or native files in InDesign, QuarkXPress, Illustrator or InDesign. Please contact us for additional information or an estimate.

Production: The MGTL production studio can build ads or collateral pieces for any print process. Starting with your design and a raw text file we will create, format and typographically refine production files in InDesign, Illustrator or QuarkXPress. Our studio services provide a cost-effective way to augment your production capabilities during peak periods.
