    PitStop Pro 19 Delivers the Tools Users Asked For

    PitStop Pro 19 Delivers the Tools Users Asked For
    The PDF editing platform we know as PitStop Pro has become a ubiquitous industry standard since it was introduced in 1993, embedded in the commercial printing industry like a star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame. As the dominant preflight product, PitStop provides deep quality control and editing for PDF printing workflows. Over the decades, Enfocus has continued to develop new functionality, moving steadily toward more and more automation. Each...

    Follow the Money with an Automated Workflow

    By Noel Ward, Editor@Large, PrintPlanet.com


    What is time worth?

    This means your time or that of your CSRs, prepress technicians, press and finishing equipment operators, and even the people in shipping. What is their time worth, and how do you translate those hours into payroll, the dollars you keep in your operating account, and profitability?

    Mounting competitive pressures and customer expectations for fast turnarounds and competitive prices rising...

    What You Missed

    By Noel Ward, Editor@Large


    If you have medium- to large-size Ricoh presses and printers and didn’t go—and you probably did get an invitation—you missed an opportunity to learn how to make your operation more efficient and profitable.

    I’m talking about Ricoh Interact 2019, held June 5th and 6th in Denver, the second full-scale version of the company’s customer-oriented event that was all about making one’s business work better and not about prying money out of...

  • A Duplo Upgrade As A Weapon Against Commoditization

    A Duplo Upgrade As A Weapon Against Commoditization

    Few observers of the commercial print industry have missed the fact that the industry now changes at hyper speed, even as it continues to consolidate. These days, most of these technology innovations fall under the aegis of automation, as efficiency becomes ever more critical to competitiveness. For better or worse, the machines keep getting smarter and taking on more of the workload as skilled operators become harder to find.

    Change is generally good – especially when it improves...

  • Green Light For Green Button Laminators at the 2019 BindRite Conference

    Green Light For Green Button Laminators at the 2019 BindRite Conference

    Al Boese, Executive Director and longtime spirit guide of the BindRite Dealers Association, prefers the term “Green Button Technology” to automation.

    “It tells a better story,” explains Boese. Al likes stories and he is good at telling them. As a longtime player in the post print segment, Boese has enjoyed a front row seat as digital technology transformed finishing and laminating equipment.

    “In my mind, GBT originated in photocopying in the early 1970’s and...

  • Learn to do Something That Can Kill You

    Learn to do Something That Can Kill You

    by Noel Ward, Editor @ Large

    Unlike many industry events there was no sense of déjà vu when coming to the third edition of Xeikon’s Café in North America. Every one of these events has been an improvement from the one before and the level of value keeps increasing. Why anyone who has or is considering a Xeikon digital press or ThermoflexX plate maker would not be at this event is mystifying. It’s one of the poster children for how vendor-sponsored events should be run.

  • The Space Between: RISO Nails the “Business InkJet” Niche

    The Space Between: RISO Nails the “Business InkJet” Niche

    by Sean O’Leary

    The transition from electrostatic/toner printers to inkjet printing continues apace, with few observers doubting that inkjet platforms will prevail in the long term. The latest generation of production inkjet presses from Xerox, KM, and Ricoh are faster than toner-based (EP) machines and generally cost less per page for the same job. As for the color accuracy question, once the accountants and customers take a good look at total benefits, it turns out that inkjet color...

    Print MIS: Can You Follow the Money?

    By Noel Ward, Editor@Large

    In the average week (as if there is such a thing!) how many different jobs and projects are on your plate? If yours is like many shops these days, your work in process may span offset, digital, and large format work, along with direct mail, data management, maybe some fulfillment, and even mobile communications. The deadlines are relentless, the pressure builds and the frustration mounts, at least some of the time. And then your lead sales guy comes in with...
