Description Digital Prepress includes all facets of a project from concept to print. Knowing how all of these processes fit together and how each step effects the next is essential for the graphic communicator. It is not only important to know how to use the computer applications to create a project for print, it is also important to know that what you have created is capable of being printed. This requires knowledge of the printing processes and materials and the impact they have on what is being created on the computer. This course is based upon the offset lithographic printing process and the digital prepress process that it uses. It utilizes Macintosh computers and the programs used in the graphics industry today.
