Planning

At ASG your four color printing always begins with you. We’ll meet with you to discuss and finalize the details of your project. Which paper is appropriate? What product will work best?

We invest in advanced digital technology, printing equipment and talented people with one thought in mind: winning, planning, printing, folding, die cutting and delivering your work.

We invite you to discover how our experience and expertise can bring your idea to life.

Prepress

The process begins here.

We live in a digital world, and ASG is a leader in the world of digital prepress. Our state-of-the-art prepress department has the tools and the talent to process your print-ready files, or create your idea from that cocktail napkin concept.

Proofing

Printing is all about the dot.

The proofing process is the time to check them all… color, text, pagination, alignment… these are just some of the important factors in the process. While the client is ultimately responsible for detecting errors, ASG is there to assist in determining if changes need to be made.

Production

At ASG we have multiple methods to meet your printing needs. Our 40” Heidelberg Speedmaster press is a virtual workhorse. This press is capable of producing high quality, high volume printing. Our Presstek DI digital press produces the same high quality printing but for shorter runs and quicker turnaround times. Whether a 200 page book or a two part form, ASG can print everything for you.

In addition to our impressive list of equipment, our pressmen have over 100 years of combined experience, so you know your project is in good hands.

Trimming and Die-cutting

The attention to detail doesn’t end when the ink dries.

The process of transforming press sheets into project specific sizes is an exacting one. We trim, die-cut, perf and score with precision.

Finishing

Here’s where your idea takes “shape.”

It’s only paper ­­­– it’s only ink ­­­– until our talented bindery department completes your project. Each page is perfectly folded, collated, stitched or bound… this is where it all takes shape.

Shipping and Delivery

Your idea had you thinking outside the box.

Now, let’s get it back inside a box. ASG can deliver it across town, ship it across the country or store it in our warehouse for future distribution. After all, we have to get that idea to its final destination… your future customer.
