Print Prepress Check: Preflighting Helps Printers Save and Think Green

Markzware develops FlightCheck, the patented software for preflighting to check documents during prepress for print quality control. Since Markzware develops this preflighting solution for print media, design and publishing, we noticed an article titled, “Lowering Your Company’s Environmental Impact with Smart Printing Solutions”. It highlights how printers can save when printing. Its suggestion to think green may help any advertising agency, corporation or marketing company, which should be preflighting.

‘Climate change is becoming more apparent than ever, which is prompting many businesses to seriously re-evaluate the way that they use energy. One of the best ways for a business to save energy is to print with the environment in mind.’

It is fantastic to see more and more print-buyers taking responsibility for their own digital creations in prepress destined for the printer. Using FlightCheck for preflighting is a no-brainer, however some may be surprised to learn that many do not perform a quality assurance check on the native or final press-PDF file before sending. FlightCheck can check both the open or native source files, as well as the resulting PDF.

It is even more encouraging to see printers save time and money, while they think green, which is great for the environment. FlightCheck prevents printing waste. If a bad digital layout or brochure from prepress goes to print with problems, you have to print it over again, which costs time, money and materials, such as inks, solvents and, of course, paper. Naturally, the printer’s prepress or repro department should also be using FlightCheck before it gets that far.
