FlightCheck is pre press software by Markzware for preflighting to ensure print quality control. This preflight solution has been used by Neil Jendon, technology supervisor at New Control in Chicago, Illinois, for over seven years. Jendon shares his experience with this print quality tool and other Markzware products:
As a long-time FlightCheck preflight software user, Jendon says FlightCheck is “Very good! It saves us a lot of grief in the long run. It’s just that many fewer conversations I have with print vendors. It’s been really buttoned up and our problems seem to get solved pretty quickly, so I’m happy with it.”
Jendon continues, “A lot of our agencies switched officially to InDesign and a lot of our clients are insisting on InDesign. But, inevitably, we run into the lowest-bidding print vendor only accepts Quark documents or can’t take PDF. So, we’ve used both the Quark to InDesign and InDesign to Quark, and I’ve even actually used it to fix files that were corrupted … opening it in InDesign and then converting it back into Quark or vice versa. So, it’s been handy.” Jendon adds that he would definitely recommend FlightCheck, Q2ID and ID2Q to others.
