In digital printing, prepress refers to the processes and tasks taking place before the actual printing of the design. It involves preparing and optimizing the digital files for production, by checking the format, resolution, transparency, fonts, bleed, cut marks, nesting, and more. Overall, prepress plays a critical role in ensuring the quality and consistency of the final output.
