For more than 50 years, Schawk’s core competency has been premedia. From the earliest days of the company’s history, Schawk has managed and manipulated color in the production and premedia process to help printers and mutual clients achieve superior quality in the reproduction of designs. Today it is one of the world’s leading global prepress companies.
Our knowledge and experience with color and how it behaves under many different conditions remains the cornerstone of our business even today. We continue to advance, share and leverage our knowledge and experience in this area with leading industry business partners such as Adobe, DuPont, Esko, Kodak and others.
Global Print Management
As a global print management company, our relationship with printers and converters has always been collaborative, and this allows us to deliver image carriers that are essentially custom-built to meet the specific characteristics of a particular printing press. This ensures the best possible reproduction of designs.
While Schawk has been known primarily for its leadership in the consumer packaging arena, we have leveraged our knowledge of this, the most demanding of mediums, to meet the needs of the advertising industry and other brand touchpoints, delivering meticulously-prepared digital files in industry-standard formats to publishers worldwide. As a global premedia company, Schawk is unparalleled.
Our premedia services include:
- Mechanical Art Assembly/Production
- Print-Ready Digital Files
