Intro to Prepress Online

We've brought the Intro to Prepress Workshop online with a series of eight live sessions!

New to printing? Designing for print? This workshop* is geared towards graphic designers and graphic artists that are either working as prepress operators or designing for print.

Starting off with a live-streamed press run, you will learn the basics of flexographic printing, press setup and more. Print samples will be shipped to you for analysis in the following session. For the remainder of the workshop, get hands-on with the tools available in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop needed to prepare artwork for printing. After making adjustments to the art, we will go back on press to see the result of good prepress work by printing YOUR files. These press sheets will be shipped to you for review in the final live session.

*Access to Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop is required!
