  • What does "camera ready" mean?

    I assume it means a layout file that is ready to be printed, such as a pdf.

    But we all know what assuming does...

    it is hard copy - a printed sample - for spot color work.

    If you have a document that is black and red, it prints the separations at high enough quality that the negs and plates for the job can be made from the prints.

    Edit: They would either be photographed or scanned for reproduction.

    The camera we had at the print shop where I used to work couldn't photograph screens.

            Now people up here use "camera ready" to mean their files are all set to rip.
            So NOT!!!

                "Ready" doesn't pertain to files either does it? Last time I really saw a camera ready file was prolly the last time I saw a PMT!

                            Since we do mainly small run spot color stuff we still get camera ready art including old PMT's . Usually this stuff comes from customers who are e-tarded, use non GD programs or from business owners that demand we return their artwork. Occasionally we will get in some ancient artwork with tons of overlays and non photo blue lines nicely rubber cemented on a piece of board. I can only imagine what a pain in the ass it would be to make corrections to something like that.
                            Some advice is profound, some is clever. The above post is a good example of both.
