Any editorial product starts with an idea that has to be defined, outlined, developed and checked. At Editec Packaging Services we receive this initial idea from the customer and work with it so that it materializes as a clearly defined product. This is the organization and planning stage.
We look for specialists, we form teams and we order work plans.
The idea is clear and we know what its technical characteristics will be. We have the basic editorial elements to construct the graphic design and set the first pages, still with sketches and dummy text, which will serve as a model for developing the project.
The generation of content begins. At Editec we write the texts or we revise the work of the authors, we correct the style of the original texts, we request and look for illustrations, we revise sketches, we arrange photographic sessions, we plan drawings and maps. We demand the most from all our collaborators: the excellence of the result depends on the good coordination of the team.
With all the original materials chosen and revised, and in accordance with the graphic project, this is the time to structure them and distribute them on the page in order for the visual elements and the content to reinforce one another. In this way, the end product, whether it is a book, a partwork or a magazine, takes shape.
Correction and going to press
Once the pages have been set, we review the result, adjust texts and correct the colour proofs and the possible spelling or typographical errors; we check the navigation of the multimedia products and we fine-tune the formal aspects and the finish, always looking for the best result, without forgetting the schedule and the printing dates agreed on with the customer.
Printing or publication
Once the product is complete, we create the high-resolution PDFs and send them to the printers or we publish them online. Checking the ozalid proofs will be our last quality control procedure.
At Editec we also do new versions of any editorial product, whether translations, adaptations, updates or changes of format.
