Prepress adjective 1: pertaining to all operations other than the preparation of the press that are required in preparing a job for printing

Probably the most important step in getting a print job right is the prepress phase. This is where most mistakes are born or eliminated. When prepress is done right, the possibility of a poorly done or incorrectly prepared job is virtually non-existent. Since a press can only output what is on a set of plates, any errors that slip past a less than vigilant prepress staff invariably winds up as a job that needs to be redone or that is otherwise compromised.
