Pre Press Software for
Preflighting (FlightCheck)

Considerations for selecting pre press software, such as FlightCheck for preflighting, when shopping for printing solutions:

Choosing printing solutions can be stressful. A preflight solution is essential for small printing companies and for large commercial printers. When you buy a pre press software for preflighting, you want to be sure it can help your prepress professionals to produce a print-ready document. Markzware’s FlightCheck is the recommended preflight solution. Following are some things you should consider before you purchase a software to preflight your files.


What is your company’s price range for pre press software that is vital to print production? Your print company’s budget should allow for appropriate preflight software that is worth its cost. Projected additional revenue, time savings, material savings, return on investment, etc. should justify the small cost. It may help to mention the costs (lost time, materials, effort, money, etc.) of not having the right software for preflighting.


The application you choose should suit your company’s and your customer’s proofing needs. You want it to accommodate the goals of your business, rather than be a poor fit that wastes money. What does your target audience want? With the app, will you provide half-scanned documents with mistakes or professional-looking print documents that had a thorough check? This video demonstration shows how FlightCheck can help:

The pre press software you buy for print quality control should be effective. You want to be sure it can do a proper job of preflighting your print documents. This could determine whether your document can go to press or whether you need a different quality check method.


For the sake of production on a tight schedule, you’ll want a preflight solution that is quick. A manual quality check is more time-consuming, not to mention fatiguing. It also risks the costs of overlooking potential file problems. You need pre press software that helps you to make your deadlines.


The more documents you produce, the bigger the potential for return on investment (ROI). Resulting increases in revenue should help you to measure the ROI. Note: To help you determine ROI, the formula for ROI is (return – investment) / investment.
Does the preflight solution save you time and speed up production?
Does it save you additional labor or save you extra painstaking effort?
Does it save materials that would have been wasted if errors were not caught?
Did it save you from having to make more press runs or do more quality checks?
Did the final document impress your customer, help to retain that customer, and help to build your brand?


Which document items can the pre press software check? Does your company need it to check for colors used, ink density, bleed, low image resolution, or other specific details? How deep is the software’s preflighting process? With its many in-depth checkpoints, FlightCheck is the thorough preflight software.

Will the preflight software package your files for you? With today’s workflow collaboration, you’ll want to be able to package fonts and other files into a folder. This single folder can then be shared with other team members in your print workflow.


The software should provide useful preflighting capabilities to your print workflow. It should be a help to your business and not a hindrance. The more helpful the preflight solution is, the more value it can deliver. Does the software have many helpful features? Will it warn you of the most possible print errors, so that you can fix them before press time?


Not every preflight solution is reliable. The pre press software you buy for print quality control should be dependable. Of the printing solutions to consider, which is the U.S. patented, popular and well-established preflight solution?


Which Preflight Solution to Choose

Different preflight solutions have pros and cons. Proof of the ideal solution will be in the preflighting process itself and in the print results.
