Preflight Checklist Lists for Preparing DTP Files for Print

FlightCheck preflighting solution by Markzware has a built-in checklist. The Markzware blog showed some traffic from AG Design / AllGraphicDesign.com (Graphic Design Software Directory & Portal for Graphics Tips : Desktop Publishing Resources & Graphic Design Links) and an article they posted titled, “PREFLIGHT & PREPRESS CHECKLISTS : PREPARING DIGITAL FILES FOR PRESS & PRINTERS .” So, of course, we looked more deeply into this and found a great collection of information about preflight for graphic designers and layout artists, as well as those in the desktop publishing business, from a variety of sources.

Many were print shops, educating on how to prepare an Adobe InDesign, QuarkXPress and Microsoft Publisher DTP file, including DTP color graphic layouts, for professional print output. While others were from industry resources, such as “Starting with the end” from Chuck Green’s IdeaBook (which I get weekly in my inbox!).


With these important print quality control issues in mind, remember that Markzware FlightCheck preflighting solution can help make your preflight checklists work more automatically. Handle InDesign or Quark print collection for packaging files, while preserving quality.
