Streamline your large format printing workflow - Esko

Large format printing

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.



i-cut suite (software) preflight

Preflighting

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.


Cutting paths made easy

Forget about going into Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator to create cutting paths. The i-cut cutting software module “i-cut Layout” offers a one stop solution for creating and cleaning cutting paths.


Automatic bleed generation

Sometimes, false registration creates annoying white lines between the cutting contour and the graphics. i-cut Layout comes with an automatic bleed generation tool.


Nesting

Nest any job 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.

Add grommet marks

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.


Tiling of grand format print jobs

i-cut Layout is perfect for oversized jobs and billboards. Irregular tiles can be defined for special applications: exhibition booth corners, wall coverings, store displays, car stickers...


Perfect registration

Often with other methods, slight distortions between printed graphics and contour cut may cause unacceptable results.

i-cut Vision Pro works together with the i-cut software. It registers the actual dimensions and positions on the printed result. Then, finishing is adapted to the shape of the graphics.
