"It builds confidence and integrity to know that the files we are sending to our vendor and clients were checked in FlightCheck before going out the door. It's the standard in the industry for a reason."
Santa Ana, California (PRWEB) June 17, 2010
Markzware, the leading developer and inventor of preflighting today announced an upgrade to its popular preflighting solution, FlightCheck Professional for Macintosh. FlightCheck Professional v6.75 adds support for the Adobe CS5 Creative Suite. This powerful upgrade gives printers, graphic designers and publishers the ability to preflight efficiently, avoiding costly production errors.
Markzware's FlightCheck is your total prepress application used to manage printing quality control for print jobs. This solution provides both a native file and Adobe PDF preflight check and is backed by a United States Patent. FlightCheck is the essential tool for Print Shops, Creative Designers, Prepress Departments, Customer Service Reps and Graphics Professionals in the digital print, publishing and print industries. FlightCheck helps you scan and prepare PDF and other document types for commercial printing, saving you time and money by avoiding re-printing jobs.
Dave Jankowski, executive art director for Brewer Associates said, "I would recommend FlightCheck Pro to those that have a good understanding of print and even those who are beginning their careers in print advertising. I think it's vital to provide your printer with correct file formats that will help them expedite your job. I hear too many times from printers about the files they will correct and not inform designers the extra steps taken to complete the job just so they can meet a deadline. Using FlightCheck Pro can make you smarter and your printer happy."
FlightCheck preflights digital files thoroughly, performs a detailed scan, and warns you about potential printing problems. This solution provides a complete analysis of the print job highlighting potential errors, item by item, including missing fonts, incorrect colors, incorrect image resolution and much more. FlightCheck then collects all the required elements of the print job, such as images and fonts, to insure that your jobs print as expected.
David Steinberg, technical support and systems specialist at Intrigue Design said, "It builds confidence and integrity to know that the files we are sending to our vendor and clients were checked in FlightCheck before going out the door. It's the standard in the industry for a reason."
One of the key capabilities of Markzware FlightCheck Professional is its power to preflight a wide variety of file formats and image types. A partial list includes – Adobe InDesign, Adobe Acrobat PDF, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe PageMaker, Adobe FreeHand, QuarkXPress, Microsoft Office, EPS, TIFF and many more.
"Every desktop publishing application that boasts about having built-in 'flight-checking' capabilities compares itself to Markzware's FlightCheck; the program that sets the standard. So far, nothing even comes close," said Michael Shaw, MaUsE President, Editor, MaUSE DoubleClick.
