It's fast, simple and effective!
DM/Standards is Right For Your Business - Binary Graphics has worked
hard to create file preparation guidelines worthy of being called a standard.
DM/Standards is valid for both Windows and Macintosh users and covers
all professional illustration, imaging and layout software programs. It
provides guidelines for all types of publications from business cards
to catalogs and packaging. It is suitable for all types of printing from
simple one or two color work all the way to CMYK+PMS.
You Can Customize DM/Standards! - While Binary Graphics makes sure
the guidelines are kept current, subscribers can easily edit the guidelines
to match their production environment and workflow. Even the splash page
can be customized to match the rest of the printers website.
You Don't Have Time For Problem Files! -
With today's tight deadlines, there's no time to fix problems so printers
need to eliminate them before they get to prepress. With DM/Standards,
customers learn how to prepare their files and their jobs fly though prepress.
Getting it right the first time means less wasted time and money and more
productivity and profits!
You Can Make More Accurate Prepress Estimates - Printers have a
problem estimating prepress when they have to guess about the files the
customer will submit. With DM/Standards, printers can make safe assumptions
about incoming materials which makes estimation much easier and more accurate.
Binary Graphics recommends making estimates contingent on the customer
following the guidelines in DM/Standards.
Sometimes You Have to Be Tough! - Unbilled re-work is a profit
robbing problem for printers. Nobody likes to charge to fix customer mistakes
but sometimes you have to. The problem is that if the printer didn't tell
the customer what do to in the first place, they can't really charge to
fix problems the customer didn't understand. With DM/Standards as the
basis on which prepress pricing is quoted, the printer has the option
to charge when they have to do significant work to correct customer mistakes.
People Like Doing Business with Experts - People respect authority
and want to be associated with professionals who know what they're doing.
Printers who subscribe to DM/Standards have a definite edge over their
competitors. They come across as more knowledgeable and that's the sort
of business designers want to work with!
We Make Sure You Get All the Credit! - Rather than take the printers
customers off their website, DM/Standards appears in a separate popup.
That, along with the clean look of DM/Standards and the fact the printer
can customize both the content and splash page means their customers see
it as coming from the printer, not Binary Graphics. We wouldn't have it
any other way!
You'll Save Time and Money with DM/Standards! - When a printer
subscribes to DM/Standards they take a significant step towards increased
prepress productivity and profitability. By eliminating problem files,
they get more work done in less time, their prepress department runs more
smoothly, their customers are more satisfied and there are fewer missed
