University of Bridgetown | Prepress

The printing process is pretty complex. I went to Bridgetown this afternoon to learn a little bit about one part of the process: prepress. Every month University of Bridgetown hosts a couple events (which means they also order in lots of Elephants Delicatessen sandwiches and Diet Coke - yum). They're working on the upcoming schedule now; you'll be able to find it here.

I learned about color, transparency, creep, the pros and cons of saddle stitching, bounding boxes and RIP (As Tom at Bridgetown put it, RIP is where they put your files to rest in peace...what it really means is Raster Image Processor/Processing). It was fun. I left full and enlightened.
