A team of editors, writers, photographers, graphic designers, cartographers and quality control specialists leads our production operations. State-of-the-art computer hardware and software resources support the team. All publications are laid out in a 100% digital format. Upon completion, these digital files are converted using the latest technology with our in-house CTP (computer-to-plate) department where plates are generated for the presses.

Highly skilled and experienced press operators, who maintain the highest standards of print quality, run our in-house printing department. Our "sheet fed" 40" Heidelberg four-color presses set the benchmark for quality in all our publications.

Our accounting and billing department ensures that all advertising contracts are processed in a timely and accurate manner. MARCOA treats every individual sales contract, regardless of size, as an important part of our customer's sales and marketing strategy.
