You have invested in a large format printing press, but some jobs require more prepress work than others. Getting a PDF preflighted, or dividing images in irregular tiles, or getting the most out of your material by nesting jobs intelligently, it all takes more time than it should.
i-cut Suite is a collection of software that streamlines your complete grand format printing prepress. Stop wasting time getting things done in Adobe Illustrator, the i-cut Suite modules help you work much faster without sacrificing quality.
PDF preflighting saves time and solves problems before it’s too late. Don’t waste time figuring out why certain PDF won’t print, just preflight them and fix it.
Forget about going into Adobe® Photoshop® or Illustrator® to create cutting paths. The cutting software module “i-cut Layout” offers a one stop solution for creating and cleaning cutting paths.
Sometimes, false registration creates annoying white lines between the cutting contour and the graphics. i-cut Layout comes with an automatic bleed generation tool.
Nest files in the most economical way: rectangular, true shapes, double side jobs… An optimized nesting layout saves substrate and reduces production time. This is especially useful when working with grand format printing materials. It also helps you keep track of your material stock.
Manually adding marks (grommet marks, filename...) takes time and may introduce errors. i-cut Layout takes your large format printing jobs add adds grommets marks automatically.
