Preflighting with FlightCheck software by Markzware to check files for print quality assurance is an important step during prepress. FlightCheck is the patented software for preflighting to catch possible printing errors, before you print. Markzware educates on preflighting to avoid print media mistakes in digital files, as mentioned in this print industry article:
“There have been many changes and developments within the print industry over the last 10 years, but there’s one area that’s stubbornly refusing to change: file errors.
According to preflight solutions providers Markzware and Enfocus, the most common errors to emerge from preflight checks are the same ones that have been occurring for years. Issues like missing fonts, low-res images, unlinked graphics and inadequate bleeds all keep cropping up in surveys of common file issues.”
