CT&D #54. Saving Money in Print Production

How does preflighting save money in the production process?

Preflighting, or the process of checking for digital errors in a job seemingly ready for print, saves money by informing a designer or editor what to change and what to keep in regards to correct and incorrect use of type, color, images, alignment and resolution (among many areas of publication construction).

Preflighting is sort of like the print preview option we see in word documents; without it, a print job can be very costly as errors not detected will force a designer or editor to reprint their work (and use up a lot of toner / ink and paper in the process) until the document is up to professional standards.
