Quality Control for the Print Workflow
Preflighting catches errors before they turn into high costs. So, a reliable preflight solution becomes a necessity in today’s high-volume prepress operations. Without preflight software, printing errors could affect customer loyalty, your brand, and your organization’s income, in a negative way.

It is also helpful to be able to share the print job folder with team members, vendors and customers. FlightCheck can collect files to package fonts, images, and other files into one folder for sharing.
