From work order to the finished product

We are simply different and it is unquestionable. Our clients know that they will get what they want.

From the moment you place an order, our mission is the ultimate end product and a satisfied customer.
High tech equipment and first-class printing organization are factors that give us an advantage over competition.

On this website you can learn more about production processes in Kerschoffset, and you will gain a basic overview of the process of creation of cutting-edge publications, even if you are not a graphic expert.

The first phase: to work order

Calculation> Cost Estimate>  Resources Management > Work Order>  Manager (facility)

Calculation

In the first phase, estimator processes the clients products query. This complex procedure reveals cost of production, the required amount of raw materials and the time required for implementation.

Resources Management

Information obtained by calculations are basis of resource management. We find out how much paper we have in stock, how much should be ordered, when and which production resources are available (equipment and personnel) and what will be the final price of the product. Only after such processing we can issue a production work order.

Work Order

According to the work order data  production managers can define certain phases and manage the process, with a special focus on the continuity of all phases.

Second stage: production

Production is traditionally divided into three main parts: the prepress, printing and finishing.
Prepress> Printing Panel> Print> Imprinted Sheet.> Finishing, Warehouse> Product

Prepress

It is understood as a part of the production process which results with the printing plates - aluminum media covered with photosensitive and paint receptive substances placed on the cylinder printing press.
Thanks to the introduction of CTP (Computer to Plate) device for direct "print" to the procedure of illuminating the printing plates in our manufacturing process, we have substantially reduced the time and cost of production, while significantly improving the quality (due to the direct transfer of content to the printing plates).

Printing

The process of printing on modern machines as used in Kerschoffset, can reach speed of up to 15,000 sheets per hour and at the same time in 1 to 5 colors - depending on demand. It is important to maintain accurate predefined conditions in such a thriving printing process. In order to achieve quality printing in accordance with the requirements of the profession and the market, we use accurate electronic method in determining and measuring the appropriate color coating and their mutual, micrometer precise alignment.

Finishing

After drying the paint, which depend on the type of paint, paper and applying method, printed sheets are mechanically and thermally processed to the required size and shape. The combination of processing has almost infinite number, so it is impossible to list them all. We can only say that we are able to produce top quality  material weather we talk simple ones or those creative, demanding complicated treatment.

Third phase: distribution

At this stage, after careful quality control, the product is packaged in bundles and distributed by our delivery vehicles or by some other agreed means.
