Desktop Publishing

Desktop publishing (also known as DTP) combines a personal computer and WYSIWYG page - layout software to create publications for large - scale publishing or local, small - scale multifunction output and distribution. The term is also commonly used to describe page - layout skills. However, these skills and kinds of software are not limited to paper and book publishing. The same skills and software are often used to create graphics for point-of-sale displays, promotional items, trade - show exhibits, retail package designs and outdoor signs.

Our desktop publishers are experts in all of the major software platforms for graphic design, pagination and web development. In addition to our in-house staff, we partner with professional desktop publishers from around the world to ensure that your project is effectively localized to your target audience.
