"The flexibility to work to
customers’ requirements
is the key to our success."

In-house DTP Department

We at Cadar have a complete PDF workflow system with supporting software for both Applemac and PC based application. Our in-house Computer to Plate section (CTP) is testimony to our on-going commitment to investment in state-of-the-art equipment and software.

Among other things, this ensures accurate initial quality checking and, because film is no longer required, we achieve first generation dot sharpness. Proofs of all jobs are printed on our Epson digital printers which are colour calibrated to our presses. Consequently they are 100% content accurate and 95% colour accurate.

Each proof is imaged post-RIP from exactly the same data file that will image the lithographic plates. So what you see on our high resolution (CGS) proofs, is what you will get in the printed job.

The flexibility to work to customers’ requirements is the key to our success. While we like to be in full control of a project, seeing the job through from conception to completion, we understand that clients prefer to handle certain elements themselves. If you want to handle your own electronic origination, we’re happy to work from a disk supplied by you and progress your job through to its conclusion.

We're serious about accuracy.
