With a highly visual graphical user interface, FreeFlow Express to Print helps perform job ticketing and prepress functions with a simple click, drag and drop method. Tabs, covers, chapter starts and watermarks are easily added by clicking and dragging to the desired location within a document. The screen will immediately show a graphic representation of each page within the job ensuring it is submitted and printed exactly as desired.
Traditionally, sophisticated workflow capabilities have been designed to address highly complex, high volume print needs and have been too costly to implement into smaller production environments. Express to Print, however, is affordably priced and tailored specifically for entry-level digital print operations by automating common prepress functions and reducing steps required to program print jobs such as business cards, brochures, postcards, books and manuals. With standard and complex tasks now easier to complete, Express to Print opens new revenue opportunities by enabling more jobs to be printed.
FreeFlow Express to Print brings affordability as well as increased productivity to the light production space with integrated predefined templates for trouble-free prepress and file preparation. When jobs are inserted into a template no operator intervention is required and the file is automatically prepared and prepress is complete. More than 70 templates will enable complex tasks such as imposition, page numbering, Bates numbering, bar codes, watermarks and finishing. In addition, FreeFlow Express to Print facilitates template customization for customers interested in creating their own unique workflow templates.FreeFlow Express to Print can be installed in minutes without the need for a server or complicated programming, allowing customers to use the tool immediately.
