DESIGN that ensure the consistency and accuracy of the supplied media (films/files/plates). Additionally, the prepress provider produces a contract proof calibrated to accurately predict the printed result. The prepress provider must provide the printer the ability to objectively confirm the accuracy of the prepress work and the printing process. This can be accomplished through the use of agreed-upon control targets. Printer: The printer is responsible for consistently reproducing the graphic design to the satisfaction of the customer (CPC). They utilize and document the process controls necessary to ensure that accuracy and consistency are achieved. They work with the other parties and suppliers to define the capability of the printing process. The printer provides the designer with accurate and timely information regarding process capabilities at the beginning of the design phase to facilitate the creation of a printable design. CREATION MANIPULATION MASS PRODUCTION Mason 1.2: Product Development Responsibilities: In short, the designer creates the image, the prepress provider manipultes the image, and the printer mass produces the image. All members of the supply chain must work together utilizing FIRST to achieve a desireable outcome. 1.3 Assumptions In order to keep the content focused and pertinent, the following assumptions were made when creating these guidelines: The audience consists of professional users who are working with current versions of software and hardware. Designers who expect their work to efficiently move through the production workflow should be working with current versions of software and hardware proven to work with downstream processes. Certain programs and manufacturers are mentioned; however, FIRST recognizes these are not the only solutions. The audience is familiar with electronic design terminology and workflow in a digital environment. If you are not familiar with electronic design terminology and/or digital workflows, visit www.flexography.org for more information. Technology continues to change rapidly. To help address this issue, additional training and support documentation will be updated and available at www.flexography.org.
