John Jones, having been with us for over 30 years, has experience in many departments at the McDonough Democrat. Currently working in the stripping department, John is in charge of getting your job from prepress to the presses. He looks over every job to make sure it is correct and ready to go before sending it on to the press room, preventing potentially costly errors further down the production line.
The McDonough Democrat, Inc., with a complete Graphic Design department, has the capability of designing your project from scratch, or using your existing files to produce your printed product.
Our creative staff has years of experience in graphic design. Brochures, direct mail pieces, newsletters, posters, letterheads, business cards, calendars, pocket folders, magazines, soft cover books, hard cover books... we've done it all.
Our stripping department is in a transition phase. We are currently making the switch from traditional film stripping to an all new CTP (computer-to-plate) system. CTP is the latest technology to get your files from computer directly onto the printing plate, eliminating the need for making films, and ensuring your printed piece is of the utmost quality.
