Design & Pre-press
Using Adobe InDesign, PhotoShop, and Illustrator, we design hundreds of pieces. The trend is to design layouts that are being shared digitally as pdfs – but most layouts are still printed. We have been involved with digital page layout and file preparation since the beginning of the ‘desktop publishing’ revolution in 1987. We have grown with the industry and software, but have always put an emphasis on value to our clients. We know how to prepare the files so that they print properly.

Paul Raybould – 30 years of digital innovation/design
I started a digital marketing and business communication firm in 1987 on a Macintosh computer. In addition to providing digitally designed flyers, brochures, newsletters and presentations, I loved being on the ‘bleeding edge’ of technology. What was learned was applied to my own business, but there were opportunities to teach, mentor, and consult regularly to transition companies to time-and-money saving digital workflows.
In 1989 I brought digitally produced film for a 44-page catalog to Dean Somers at PrintArt. This was the first time they received film from a digital source. He could not guarantee the results. I later took part in a ComputerLand business expo where Dean and Lou Barone saw my demonstration of typesetting and decided to computerize.
