It definitely lives up to its promise to provide high-quality double-sided proofing. And, because the Preproofer comes with DI-Plot bitmap-proofing software, we were able to easily integrate the product into our prepress workflow.” With a wide variety of output formats, the Preproofer models can be aligned to create prints in formats rivaling most configurations of offset presses and post-press equipment used in the printing industry. This latest version of the Preproofer solution affords today’s printer a whole new range of highly-attractive application areas.

“Colonial Printing is a top-notch operation and we are delighted to be working with them,” said William Fabiano, Director of Technology, CMYK Distributors. “The installation of Digital Information’s new Preproofer at Colonial represents a significant milestone for Digital Information.
