3 golden tips to reduce prepress costs

A lot of time, effort and money goes into prepress processes, so naturally you want to get that final print right the first time. If you want to keep errors at bay to reduce prepress costs to an absolute minimum, you’ve come to the right address. Take these golden tips to heart, sit back and watch your prepress processes become more cost-effective than ever.

1. Preflight before you print

Why spend hours manually checking PDF files for errors when you can do it with the click of a button? Preflighting your documents with PitStop Pro keeps missing fonts, transparency issues, lack of bleed and all other kinds of file-inherent errors from ruining your prints. PitStop Pro analyses the PDF, reports errors and fixes them automatically.

2. Automate your prepress workflow

Are you spending a great deal of your time downloading jobs from your server, extracting email attachments, checking folders for newly uploaded jobs, updating clients on the status of their order, …? Stop! Switch is automation software that can do all these things for you, and more…

Did you know? Switch even allows you to integrate PitStop Server into your workflow, so that you can have incoming PDF files automatically checked for errors?

3. Help your customers help themselves

Wouldn’t it be great if your customers always submitted print-ready documents, so you wouldn’t have to get back to them to get their layouts right? Connect makes it possible! It enables you to control the creation of your customer’s PDF during upload and ensure all fonts, links et cetera are embedded correctly.
