Technical Information

We sometimes find ourselves talking print-shop jibberish to our clients, and wonder how you make heads or tails of what we are saying. The purpose of this page is to give a better explanation of the products we carry, as well as the types of files that we prefer to deal with. Is there something missing from this page? Let us know, and we'll be sure to add it in.
