    Default Prepress Salaries

    I was just wondering what the average prepress specialist salary is?
    I am not asking anyone to disclose their salary
    I am just trying to get a general idea

    Salaries are very much location dependent. You might try looking at some of the job search sites like: Salary & Employee Benefits Articles - Salaries & Wages | Monster.com

    I've always believed that in the Dallas-Metroplex area, salaries range from $17-$25 for "general" prepress operators - more if you can color correct images, are efficient at Preps, etc. Gone are the day of $30+/hour jobs - the mergers and acquisitions of print shops, along with "less print, more web" have seen to that!

    This depends on if you are looking to work for someone else or work for yourself, in either case the sky's the limit on this, if you get a job at a high end publisher in New York or if you are really good and work for yourself. On the other end, if you work for a quick printer you can expect $10 to $20 an hour.

    Look at the author's face - gray and almost bold... However, smiles like he's indeed fine.
