While reading about the web-to-print market, it seemed to me that the graphic design world tries to avoid preflighting their documents. FlightCheck is the patented preflight solution from Markzware. It makes document management easier and more efficient for print quality control.
FlightCheck is pre press software to thoroughly check files for potential printing problems. Then, these files can be corrected, so they will be print-ready before document output. This saves time, money and unnecessary labor, as well as reprints.
As developer of FlightCheck, Markzware saw this mention of Brand Station. It is an online solution from WoodWing, known for InCopy and InDesign plug-in systems:
The Web-to-Print process involves a brand owner, designers and brand users. Designers create templates according to the corporate design. The brand owner approves the templates and provides them via the Web to a controlled group of brand users (e.g. the subsidiaries). These users can access the templates through their Web browser and generate high-quality, print-ready files without needing an in-depth knowledge of print production. Brand users cannot change the design; they can only customize the templates with their own information. A brand owner can request an optional approval step for every document. Finally, Brand Station delivers the print-ready files to the brand user in various file formats, including JPG, PDF or EPS; more formats can be added easily.
Corporations may consider this to standardize their graphic media for print-ready content. Yet, print quality assurance does not just happen by itself in print media.
FlightCheck scans documents in several file types and provides detailed reports of printing issues. To be sure that your documents are print ready, be sure to use FlightCheck. See more printing solutions on the Markzware Products page.
