How to preflight prepress file types for print quality control, using Markzware’s preflight solution, FlightCheck:

If you don’t preflight your documents, printing problems could occur at press time. Graphic designers need a preflighting tool that can do a thorough check of the file types that they use. Ideally, they should be able to use one tool that can check many file types. This article will provide information on a file-checking application that can preflight desktop publishing (DTP) formats during prepress.

Markzware provides a host of printing solutions that enhance PDF and non-PDF production for print and DTP. FlightCheck is pre press software that offers extensive preflight checking and packaging capabilities.

FlightCheck finds and identifies file problems in the prepress document and provides a preflight report of the details. This allows printers to make corrections and produce a flawless document.

FlightCheck can check many file formats in prepress to ensure a high-quality print document. Watch how, in this video demonstration:
