PRE-MEDIA

Pre-Media, rather than Prepress, defines the extended capabilities and resources that we provide our clients, including data management, campaign management, creative direction, and e-mail marketing just to name a few. Pre-Media is the modern term for a progressive printing company like DOME.

Our Pre-Media department utilizes some of the best in class technologies and has developed exclusive workflows to help our clients automate their process. No matter how simple or complex your product is, our skilled technicians have the tools and knowledge to design and execute flawlessly. Because we understand the value of your data, security and reliability are a high priority and is embedded into all of our systems and practices.

DIGITAL PREPRESS AND IMPOSITION

Pre-Media is important to both design and printing. Our department is full of experts who will prepare your files for imposition, plating and proofing. With access to both PCs and Macs and access to the latest design software, our goal is to prepare your file correctly for print.

DOME offers a variety of proofing methods. Our DOME Project Proofer system is a secure online digital proofing solution. You’ll be able to see high resolution proofs no matter where you are. The system provides a variety of tools to review your project and make notes for corrections. For physical color proofs, our Epson proofers deliver color accurate prints. Our dedicated sales team always works closely with the pre-media department to ensure that you know exactly what is going on with your project.

Data Processing is part of our pre-media and print solution process. DOME is a Certified Full Service Mailer with USPS Certified CASS & NCOA and Postal Presort processes. We are capable with complex data analysis and integrated campaign management like for PURL campaigns and mail tracking. DOME can help with mail list acquisition and house file maintenance, while providing money saving quality Merge/Purge and Data appending.

Variable Data

The more relevant a direct mail piece is to the individual, the more successful it will be. Variable data printing allows you to do just that with personalized text and imagery. DOME’s Pre-Media department uses top of the line variable data programing to make even the most complex project run seamlessly through production.

Take your campaign one step further and add in cross media elements like personalized landing pages (PURLs) and emails. Create stronger messaging that builds brand awareness, customer loyalty, and most importantly, increases your response rate.
