As a boy, art and technology always fascinated Patrick. It’s no wonder this one-time typesetter recognized the absence of a fail-safe preflight tool to ensure consistent print quality during the graphic arts design and prepress process.
Patrick Marchese is the founder of Markzware and fuel behind it, as the preflight technology pioneer who markets FlightCheck to a publishing industry that appreciates the value of finely scrutinizing digital files prior to output.
Today, with an arsenal of creative publishing software tools, Markzware, originally established in 1989, is the highly recognized and utilized name in preflighting and holder of U.S. Patent # 5,963,641. The company’s flagship product, the industry standard preflight solution FlightCheck, is used by prepress managers and graphic designers worldwide.
Ron, the Chief Engineer of Markzware, has over 20 years experience in software development. He is the main programmer behind FlightCheck. Making further use of his talents and attention to detail, Ron also happens to be a master classical guitarist with his handmade Ramirez concert guitar.
Ron, along with Patrick, share the same vision: to provide the prepress and printing industries with powerful tools and utilities that will assist in reaching the goal of perfect digital print output.
