If you need help, don’t wait. Contact a prepress professional directly with our quick form.
Prepress is activity performed at the print shop to ready, or prepare, your artwork or files for accurate printing. This applies to a digital print job as well as standard offset printing, although the tasks for each can differ.
Kenwel Printers staffs an in-house prepress department with experienced professionals representing a balance of the technical and artistic. From development of copy and advertising print campaigns and newsletters; to use and maintenance of robust digital software to prepare or create client projects for digital print or copy; to creation of printing plates for offset printing, our pre-press department is there to assist and make sure your print project is the best it can be.
Our team interacts effectively with customers in a friendly and patient manner, as well as communicates accurately to our press professionals. And because they have a wide range of knowledge, we frequently call upon them to assist with sales or operations activities. In short, they are part of your team when you bring your project to Kenwel.
Our goal is always to help you get your project completed on time, on budget and to exceed your expectations in knowledge and customer service. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Mistakes in layout and design account for 80% of prepress costs when a file goes to a commercial print shop. A graphic designer can easily improve the odds by knowing the best design practices to avoid these errors. Designing for Print is a blog that gives you our best prepress tips by topic.
We’ve developed a set of Design Templates to share our knowledge and assistance with our current and prospective customers. These Design Templates provide how-to guidance for common digital projects and they frequently provide a downloadable PDF template that you can incorporate as a layer in your design to help you with page layout.
