Serious about CTP
* Should finished files be saved as PDF files by the printer? Can text be extracted?
Consider strategic plans of both printer and publisher for a lasting partnership.
* What technologies or markets is the publisher investigating for the future?
* How might these market shifts change manufacturing priorities (will turnaround time be more important than before, for example?)
* What technologies or markets is the printer investigating? Are these of interest to the publisher?
* Once it's decided to go CTP, can publisher or printer keep a log of materials and equipment used so that the two parties can track the positive and negative experiences with different brands?
* What recommendations does each have for the other? How can they help each other?
