Description: Prepress technicians and workers prepare materials for printing presses. They do typesetting, design page layouts, take photographs, and make printing plates. With personal computers, customers can now show workers how they want their printed material to look. Prepress workers have different titles depending on their jobs. Most work at video monitors, and some work with harmful chemicals.
