There are plenty of printers to choose from in the area… what sets Lee Printing apart from the rest is the attention to detail and the customer service. It’s a great feeling to do business with a company that is local, family owned, creative, technically competent and all-around nice to work with. The experience in the industry is another reason why I choose Lee Printing. They not only provide me with solutions to printing problems, they also have a firm grip on the future. They have, on more than one occasion, provided me with suggestions on how to keep my collateral current and effective!

Color Correction

 

Your computer monitor does not have the richness in color that your final printed product will have. Because this printing process is a full color printing operation, your files and images will at some point need to be converted to CMYK from RGB. It’s best if you do the conversion so you can see the initial color adjustment of the file. This can easily be accomplished with a design program such as PhotoShop.

 

 

Colored text

 

Colored text is fine to use for font sizes 12pt or higher. Anything smaller can result in distorted text that will be difficult to read.

 

Digital Photographs

 

If you are using digital photos from a camera, set your camera to take shots at a high pixel resolution number so that your JPG can be altered in size without any problems in terms of color and sharpness. It’s a good idea to use a program like PhotoShop to ensure that the images have a resolution setting of 300dpi.

 

 

Scanned Images

 

If you’re scanning images from photographs, scan them using a resolution of 300dpi. Scan your images at the size you’re going to use them so the images retain their detail and color balance. You can also save your images in either TIF or EPS format, preserving the color and sharpness of your images.

 

 

Web Images

 

We don’t suggest that you use images from the web. Most have low resolutions and will not add to your design.

Lee Printing Company, Established in 1889

 

 

An Overview of Lee Printing Company.

 

William J. Lesperance grew up in Detroit and was the second oldest of 4 brothers. He sold newspapers to raise enough money to move out of his childhood home at the young age of 16, the year was 1945. Selling “extra” newspapers on the corner gave him the opportunity to take notice of “ink on paper”. To coin an old printing phrase “ink started to run in his veins”. With that interest he enrolled in the International Typographical Union of North America where he graduated in 1950.

Soon after graduation Bill was employed as a typesetter at Northwestern Printing in Detroit. He later was married to Beverly, moved to Macomb County and raised 3 children. While working one day he received a call from his wife Bev that their oldest son was sick and needed medical attention. Bill approached his foreman to leave early and a stern “no” was the response. That incident was the catalyst that started his quest to own a printing business; not only to provide for his family, but also create a work environment that would encourage a family atmosphere. Family health was on the forefront of his mind.

Bill had the opportunity to purchase Lee Printing Company located in Mount Clemens in 1964. The company survived the 1967 riots and the gas crunch of the 70’s. In 1976 the landlord informed him that he needed to move his business due to the demolition of the building he presently occupied. Even with the high interest rates of the late 70’s, Bill purchased land and built a new building that we presently occupy today. The early 90’s brought desktop publishing to mainstream and Bill dove in headfirst. Purchasing a slew of Apple Computers we grew our graphics side of the business. The late 90’s took a turn for the worse — William Lesperance passed away August 30, 1998 at the age of 68 of pancreatic cancer. He was diagnosed and passed within 2 months.

Beverly who was Vice President took over the business until it was sold to her son Keith in 2006. Keith was 7 years old when his father purchased the business. His first job at age 11 was working Saturdays for .50 cents an hour washing floors and cleaning equipment. Keith took to printing like his father and has been working full time since November 1977. Keith’s son Ryan came on board in 2000; three generations in the same business over a 48-year period of time. We truly are a family owned business and one that hopes to serve our customers for many years to come.

Bleeds, what are they

 

Bleed is a term for any color or image that goes right to the edge of the paper. What happens is that the picture or other graphic extends 1/8" (.125") beyond the edge of the page and that excess image or color is then cut off as a part of the finishing process.

Text or images that are not meant to be trimmed off the edge of your final printed piece must be 1/8"-1/4" (.125"-.25") from the edge of your layout (also known as safety area). Items placed 1/8" (.125") or closer are in danger of being trimmed off.
