Prepress in a digital environment

Whether you run your own printing business or you’re managing an in-house print room, as a print provider you will be highly aware that only an intelligent set-up for printing and streamlined pre-press phase will let you produce and supply impeccable print products within tight deadlines.

Make-ready: set up your printing press for the future

Professional ‘make-ready’ capabilities are at the heart of a well thought-out print set-up. Make-ready options let you react flexibly to the last-minute changes customers so often request, enhance your efficiency and help you optimise your services.

The technical benefits of using make-ready print software to ensure you can rely on a well set-up printing press are huge. The print preparation work underpinning production – from setting up your printing press through to the client signing an OK sheet – can be repetitive and unnecessarily time-consuming.

Professional make-ready software puts you in a position to make last-minute changes to print job settings seconds before the job is sent to production. With the right make-ready application, it is no problem to insert tab sheets, delete pages or add complex job processing details like booklet finishing, imposition, colour splitting or crop marks just before printing, combine different types of document, create a layout and more. Thanks to the real-time preview, you immediately see any changes made to the job.

This saves you valuable time because you no longer have to produce sample prints, and lets you deal professionally with those last-minute changes customers so often make to orders – involving the page size or number of pages, finishing settings such as booklet, binding, stitching and similar – and end-customers benefit from the more competitive prices you can offer.



So what exactly is a “make-ready” printing software, and how can it benefit your company?

Professional make-ready capabilities enhance your efficiency, and let you react flexibly to any last-minute changes customers may request. They help you and your staff streamline your print preparation, so you no longer need to waste time on the recurring tasks required to set up print jobs, can set up your print production efficiently, and cut costs by splitting jobs into colour and black-and-white.
