Pre-Press Check For Your Artwork

Pepper has invested in the latest Agfa ApogeeX digital workflow system which is fully integrated into our print production processes.  This enables us to deliver a high quality, fast, efficient and accurate Pre-press service.


Pre-press work at Pepper is almost completely digital, eliminating the need for conventional film and match-prints.
It reduces pre-press production time and increases our speed and accuracy.


We are able to work with artwork in many different formats including:


  • InDesign Files
  • Photoshop Files
  • Illustrator Files
  • Quark Files

Our in-house design team pre-flight check all files we receive to identify any potential problems at this critical pre-press stage.  This helps to prevent potentially costly mistakes occurring later in the print production process.
