Prepress - Your design in production.

No matter which packaging component is produced and which printing process is used - with our team of experienced specialists we guarantee defined and consistent printing results.

By carefully preparing the data, we develop the decisive framework conditions for a successful and repeatable print implementation of your design on different packaging types and substrates.

Köstlin Prepress Services stands for competent know-how in printing process-specific data preparation.

Colour Management

Supporting colour and print quality also includes checking and careful processing of colour standards and profiling.

For the greatest possible reliability and precision, we work with GMG OpenColor and recognised colour space standards. The most accurate spot colour simulation and binding predictions of overprinting effects are thus given.
This accompanies our team in their daily work and ensures a comprehensive colour management service.

In order to achieve the desired colour results, we carry out a wide variety of colour space elaborations. This also applies to the exact profiling, which is the basic prerequisite for a uniform and satisfactory result.

CMYK and Pantone colours


All relevant print parameters, machine profiles and substrate simulations are included in the creation of our halftone proofs.

With the help of the extensive processing of the original design data, we are able to simulate reference representations and colours in various ways. 
We offer the proofs on numerous substrates, e.g. matt or glossy film. The colour simulation is always of consistent quality.  

The integration of remote proofing systems has also proven to be effective. We offer the greatest possible flexibility and speed for fast, location-independent processing.

Pressure monitoring

We feel responsible - for your products and our work.

For us, the project does not end with the data and printing form dispatch. We are happy to accompany the process to the end with a print approval and ensure that a satisfactory and reproducible print result is achieved. 

The close and above all cooperative partnership with the producing printers is therefore the decisive factor and bridge to success. 

A subsequent pressure evaluation is also part of our service and consulting. The results are checked against the previously agreed parameters and assessed in terms of printing technology.
