Preparation of the printing form

<<Printing services
Printing creates substantial part of our business. To our clients we offer printing by a great number of technologies available on today's market. Development of these printing technologies is unbelievably fast. Thanks to these new technologies quickly increases also the quality of printing.

And today, the client is not interested any more, what technology will be used to produce his order. Important is that it will be produced very fast and in required quality and that is what we are after years of development and gaining of experience able to deliver.

Time distribution of for example book production is in these days as follows:
– 60 % author's preparation (writing, securing photographs)
– 10 % design and composition, technical processing of images
and production of shelf dummy
– 25 % repeated proofing
– 5 % preparation of printing form and book production itself, for example 2000 pieces>>

<<Process for the preparation of printing forms
Abstract:This invention relates to an improvement in the process for the preparation of printing forms or metallic etchings from electrophotographic or electrographic reproduction materials composed of a support with a photoconductive or high-ohmic layer thereon, by charging and image-wise exposure, or by image-wise charging, development of the electrostatic image with a finely-divided toner, fixing, and removal of the layer in the image-free areas by means of a decoating solution, the improvement comprising developing the electrostatic image with a developer which reacts at least superficially with the image areas at room temperature, thereby simultaneously effecting development and resistance to the decoating solution, or developing the electrostatic image with a developer which reacts with the decoating solution and thereby deactivates it in the image areas>>
