How graphic designers can preflight for print quality control, using Markzware’s preflight solution, FlightCheck:

How might graphic design professionals preflight print files, without pre press software? A graphic designer could do a painstaking visual check. For a preflight report, they would also have to create and organize report categories, points and details from scratch. With Markzware’s FlightCheck, graphic designers no longer have to do a visual print quality check.

With FlightCheck as your preflight tool, you get the kind of performance you’d expect from quality Markzware products. FlightCheck is a stand-alone application that can check files for printing problems, before those files go to print. It helps users to ensure that the document is print-ready and error-free.

You can check documents for file problems before press time. See how, in this FlightCheck demonstration video:
