  • How do I view .ppf files?

    I'm in the unique position of trying to generate PPF files for a press I don't have. Things are going smoothly, but I'm curious as to if there is a way for me to view the preview in the PPF files I'm making. Any help would be appreciated.

    i saw something a while ago that exported the ppf values to and excel spreadsheet type file, cant remember what it was, it took some googling.

      It was over on the PPF boards, can't recall which section though. I wonder if you can install InkPro without a license.

      I'm not sure what you're going to be able to "preview" exactly however.

        Thanks for your help. Really what I was looking for was a way to view the preview my system was generating for the PPF.

            PPF files are generally generated by an MIS, an imposition or a CIP3 solution. This file is used to setup your ink parameters on a CIP3 / CIP4 console.

            We offer a solution that reads PPF files and can also generate a report to setup ink keys and presses.

            If you have questions, contact me via email.

                Have a look at Excourse PressPerCent Information

                We've been using it for a couple of years now. Works as advertised.

                InfoTrends reported that interviews with more than 100 print customers demonstrated an appetite and willingness to pay premiums of 24% to 89% for special effects, over CMYK-only printing. They also indicated embellishment could apply to a significant portion of their work. Embellishment options can include hot foil stamping, spot gloss UV, embossing, debossing, letterpress, diecut shapes, lamination, duplex, triplex, gold foil, silver foil, copper foil, white foil, black foil, clear foil, etching, and laser cutting techniques.
