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 documents, 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.
