Process Printing, Pre-print Process, CMYK Separation
Before ink meets roller, a team of artists and engineers must eliminate design mistakes and account for all variables — even humidity. GMK Prepress commemorates that process.
CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black) inks are printers' building blocks. Hulking constructs of steel and composites, which can weigh more than 10 tons, apply those colors to paper at unbelievable speeds. One error can ruin thousands of pages.
Printing jargon has been around for thousands of years, so anachronisms abound. Prepress' designer selected a few accessible terms for his set, including "Bleed." Violence isn't involved — bleed is simply the area that will be trimmed from a page, which can also have some excess ink applied (ink bleeds after all).
GMK Prepress works as an accent piece on any creator's desk — we wouldn't be surprised at compliments from "in the know" professionals. Its versatile industry-standard colors blend with a wide range of keyboard aesthetics, which is important after hours. Printing company employees know how to party when the job is done.
