Desktop Publishing Specialists
If you have ever used a computer to design and print a page in your high school paper or yearbook, then you have had some experience in desktop publishing. Not so many years ago, the prepress process (the steps to prepare a document for the printing press) involved metal casts, molten lead, light tables, knives, wax, paste, and a number of different professionals from artists to typesetters. With computer technology, these jobs are becoming more consolidated.
