Ryan is our main prepress technician. He is primarily responsible for pre-flighting and preparing all files for production. Ryan handles all customer sample requests and works with Marketing. Ryan’s favorite print files involve the use of white ink with varying levels of translucencies. “These files can be a challenge to prepress, but they produce the most visually appealing work. Faux window perf for instance is a favorite. It presents a fun challenge because you want to clearly see the design, however you also don’t want to block the driver’s visibility. It is tricky, but rewarding.”
More on Ryan: Outside of SignCenter I enjoy outdoor activities like camping or grilling, playing softball, painting, comic books, spending quality time with friends and family, watching the NFL and NBA, and drinking great IPAs.
