Number One Reason for Delays in Print Turnaround Time
The number one reason your print order can be delayed is do to errors in producing print-ready files.
All commercial printers are searching for the holy grail of PDF files; PDF X-3 , PDF X-4.
A PDF X file is ready to RIP (raster image processing). The RIP is the computer/software that reads, interprets and renders your images onto printing plates. If there are issues with submitted files, the RIP will error out and the print job will be stopped. That’s when you receive the “phone call”.
HiDefColor.com will be installing an AutoRIP feature online shortly. This will be a FREE, simple way to preflight your files before placing an order with us.
Any errors will be noted so they can be repaired before you incur any charges for sending new files.
