Print Production

Media that leaves an impression

Although digital is ubiquitous, print media remains popular, persuasive and trusted. Pace paves the way with well-crafted magazines, books, brochures, manuals and printed materials across all formats. With both greater loyalty and higher recall in its favor, print media continues to capture audience attention and drive audiences to action. Little wonder our clients consistently see high returns on their investment in print.

PRINT PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT SERVICES

Pace’s print production management services operate across three levels:

Full Service

In this tier of service, Pace selects printers and paper, provides full pre-flight services, oversees color proofing, manages all aspects of printing and distribution, conducts on-site approval at printer, establishes a production schedule, estimates budget and audits and approves all production and distribution invoices.

Client Directed Services

In this tier of service, Pace’s clients select printers and paper suppliers, but Pace may still manage all other services, including paper and on-site approvals at printer, production schedules, budgets and a final audit and approval of production and distribution invoices.
