When a print file comes to your shop floor (from a web shop, a designer, or a customer) it is critical to make that file print-ready as fast as possible.
Accurate preflighting (controlling whether files are print-ready) is necessary for an efficient use of your equipment, it also helps to avoid expensive rejects.
Preflighting is typically time consuming and manual work. Normally, it takes between 20 and 45 minutes to get a file ready and results depend heavily on the designer’s or operator’s skills and experience.
Additionally, preflighting is typically given away as a free customer service, despite the effort it takes to get it right.
