Attention to the Details at All Hours of the Night

By Betsey Garvey on October 14, 2013

It’s not usually a good thing when your phone rings in the middle of the night, but a few weeks ago, I was getting a wake-up call every three hours. Let me explain …

We recently wrapped up the design and production of a 104-page viewbook for our client Butler University. The project was months in the making and needed to drop into prospective students’ hands by early fall. We had worked long and hard to finalize every detail, and it was a relief when we were able to hand off the files to the printer for production.

However, like any other project we send out for production, our job is not complete when the design files leave our office. We’re sticklers for perfection here, which means we work closely with our vendors until the final pieces are delivered.

So, for three days straight, every three hours, I spent my time at the printer looking closely at every sheet that came off the press. And after a few days’ rest, went back – this time to the bindery – to make sure each page was in order and the final trim of the entire book was aligned correctly.

No matter how big or small a project is, we pay attention to the details. From the beginning stages of brainstorming to the delivery of the final product, we work to find the best solution for our clients. Give us a call and we’ll work together on your next project to produce an exceptional result. And don’t worry – you can leave the press checks to us!
