Experience is what matters when your are choosing a new printer for your next magazine printing. We know this is your single most expensive aspect of your magazine production. Deal with a family run company that cares. You want a great price, but without quality it just won't cut it!
Every step in our magazine production is geared towards efficiency and quality. Our digital proofs and folded imposition proofs are just a small example of what Tri-Tech provides to make your next magazine printing easy.
Tri-Tech (Canada) Inc has the experience and expertise you demand in a magazine printer.
Tri-Tech's beginnings date back to the mid 70's. (1974) From our early days of converting artboards into film for stripping. Through to our expansion in Computerized typesetting in 1980 with the then state of the art Computerized Compugraphic Typesetting.
Years later we were one of the first imaging onto our first film imagesetter.
The stepping stone of our pre-press department was a Heidelberg Lino 330.
We have always bought the best of available equipment. This is where quality starts. Our services back then covered the entire spectrum from Paste-up through to film stripping, proofing and print production.
All of this old equipment is long gone. Everything is now produced using CTP. Direct to Plate as it is well known today. Our years of experience with pre-press in years past helps our future.
Our Heidelberg platesetter is configured for our Komori Press, as the plates are punched to our Komori press pin specs at the time of imaging and not after. This ensures the best possible registration when the plates are later loaded on press. The human hand punching plates offline, can't possibly do this as accurately.
This is where automation is the key to better pricing and better quality.
Expanding and growing your magazine
- Saddle Stitched (S/C - Self Cover) or Perfect Bound formats?
One of the biggest fears we have heard from magazine publishers
is the changing from saddle stitched S/c (Self Cover) to a perfect bound magazine,
once your page count exceeds 96 pages.
(after 96 pages we recommend perfect bound, at 96 it's your option)
Going to a Perfect Bound prior to reaching 96 pages
will only add to your cost and make the chances of you growing your
magazine that much more difficult. Magazines that stand the test of time
are magazines that make money with at least 40-50% ad content.
Your magazine should grow or shrink in direct relation to the number of ads sold!
Make the jump to Perfect Bound, when the advertising demands it with paid advertising!
When you are ready to make the jump there is nothing you need to alter on your end
other than create a file for the spine. Guiding you through that process is very simple.
We look after adjusting the spine width and doing the calculations required for a perfect spine!.
Where others simply go by previous magazine spine widths.
At Tri-Tech we physically measure the stock on our floor.
This we have found is the most accurate way.
The results confirm it with spines that are perfect!
So, if you are looking to expand your magazine and making the jump to a perfect bound format.
Relax, and Develop a comfort level with Tri-Tech for your next
Saddle Stitched or Perfect Bound magazines.

"Develop a comfort level with Tri-Tech"
Having your magazine printed at Tri-Tech really is this easy.
It all starts with 7 simple steps.
1)Let us know you have a magazine to be printed.
Send us any e-mail or give us a call.
Lorraine or Doug would be more than happy to assist you.
2)We will obtain from you all the required information for your next magazine. Number of pages, page size, quantities. Type of Binding Perfect Bound or S/c Saddle Stitched, and Trim Size. We will also obtain Payment details and your company info or credit card information. Visa, MasterCard or PayPal
3)Send us your files on CD, or through our FTPsite.
As soon as an account is established a custom user ID and personal password will be setup on our FTPsite for your. It will be yourcompany_ftp with a password of your choice. You will have your own personal directory/folder to upload or download files or changes. Our server is available 24hours a day for your convenience. With an 8meg service uploads are fast and efficient.
4)Color accurate Digital proofs, and a Booked Proof will be shipped to you for approval. Both proofs together ensure accuracy. The digital proofs for color and the booked proof to verify layout and crossovers. Our clients have commented they are better than most in the industry. They are always color adjusted by our own in-house designed color correction chart.
5)Proofs are then sent back to Tri-Tech with changes indicated. This now becomes our on press and bindery guide.
6)Changes will then be proofed through e-mail with our electronic proofs. These proofs contain the identical information that will be sent to our plate setter. The resolution will be adjusted to 150dpi and converted to RGB to ensure rapid communication and ease of use. What good is an electronic proof if it ties up your e-mail. Our proofs are in a Jpeg format that can be viewed right in your e-mail inbox. How is that for ease and comfort?
Remote printouts are a snap as well.
7)Once final approval is complete, printing will commence. All we require is an e-mail stating, we are good to go to print.
Once we have final approval, your magazine is basically done. Leave everything to us. We will be on top of production from start to finish. Each and every member of our staff will know about your magazine and where it is through the entire printing cycle.
