Extensis Launches PrintReady for Preparing and Sending Perfect Print Jobs
|Seybold Conference & Expo, San Francisco, Calif. – September 10, 2002 – Extensis today introduced PrintReady, a powerful, web-based system for preflighting, collecting and submitting files for printed output. PrintReady, based on Extensis’ award-winning Preflight Online technology, is a new family of products that dramatically simplifies preflighting making it a seamless part of the file submission process. Extensis can be located at the Seybold Conference and Expo at booth number 701.
The product line includes a product for designers and small workgroups (priced below $400), and two enhanced packages aimed at service providers, large printers and publishers. All three PrintReady packages are available for purchase immediately from the Extensis website at http://cde.extensis.com/printready.
PrintReady is a complete quality control/file delivery solution that provides designers, publishers and printers with the perfect solution for preparing, collecting and sending print-ready files. Less expensive and easier to use than traditional preflighting software, PrintReady catches potential problems, such as embedded fonts and missing images, before files are submitted to a printer, saving users time and money.
“When designers hear the word preflighting they generally think ?root canal’ because until now, it’s been a tedious and painful process,” said Joseph Schorr, senior product manager for PrintReady. “PrintReady totally changes this. It turns preflighting into a seamless part of the file submission process, explains potential problems in plain language, and delivers print jobs directly to their destination.”
PrintReady also offers a significant advantage for service providers, who wish to provide preflighting capabilities to their clients. Instead of buying and installing software for each customer, a service provider can buy one PrintReady Service Provider Edition account, customize the branding, and deliver preflighting to every customer – for less than $2,000. In addition, administration of the account is completely centralized, enabling a service provider can set up inspection profiles that are applied on every users desktop – with nothing to manually install or configure.
The PrintReady family of products includes:
