 G4 logo ABOUT

We are a color PrePress firm in Lenexa, Kansas (in the suburbs of Kansas City), specializing in high-quality process and spot-color file production for the printing industry. Our customers are primarily advertising agencies and design studios, as well as firms that have their own in-house advertising department. While our primary end product began as stripped litho film, the digital age advances, and today we have morphed into a totally computer-based group. In addition, we are routinely being called on to assist the customer in "repurposing" the digital information that has accumulated here as a result of prepress work. This could be as simple as writing out a document used for printing to an Adobe Acrobat file, or as complex as compiling all materials used for a series of catalogs for use in multi-media or Internet presentations.

We first opened our doors in February of 1984; back then, you may recall, virtually all film work was assembled by hand, and computerized drum scanners were just really beginning to claim the market. Also introduced at about the same time was the Macintosh, from Apple Computer. Today, several lifetimes later in this industry, the pairing up of Adobe Postscript and the Apple Mac has matured, and virtually everything done here is done on a Mac.

Whatever it takes, we will use the process that will get the best job done, fastest and most efficiently, to provide the customer with the best value. Because we are professionals looking to do the best job we can, and if a customer leaves our shop unhappy, nobody wins.

 G4 logo PORTFOLIO

Create a single source for all of your digital assets so anyone in your organization can find and access what they need, when they need

.

Helps Create Meaningful Organization

Easy File Upload and Storage
Quickly load files into Portfolio by either importing documents or ingesting files already located on the server.

Empowered Metadata and Tags
Allow automatic extraction of metadata and add keywords individually or in batch, which lets you find your assets more easily.

Flexible Organization
Define multiple catalogs, folders, and galleries to fit the way your organization works.

Find Assets Instantly

Predictive, Google-like Search
Find what you need in milliseconds. Enter a few search characters and Portfolio will automatically suggest a list of matching assets and display the results.

Asset Previews
Thumbnails and video snippets are automatically generated upon upload, giving you a visual way to search, preview, and find the assets you're looking for fast.

Smart Galleries
Conditional searches in Portfolio can be saved as a Smart Gallery, so when assets are tagged with specific metadata, they are automatically added to the appropriate gallery.

Share and Use Assets Intelligently

User Management
With Portfolio, users can be granted access with controlled permissions to specific catalogs, giving them the ability to access the files available to them.

Drag & Drop Access
Conveniently drag and drop files between Portfolio and your folders, desktop, and any supported application, such as Adobe InDesign and Microsoft PowerPoint.

Convert On-The-Fly
Sometimes, a lower resolution or resized version is needed. Without submitting asset requests, conversions and unnecessary back-and-forth, users can convert and download what they need, when they need it.

The catch:
You'll need an account username and password before you can use it. Give us a call!
