    Retired now

    After 45 years in prepress, I am now officially retired due to health issues. It has been a fun ride all of these years, and watching how prepress has changed so much, when I was first a platemaker at age 17. Being involved with PrintPlanet has been a high point in my prepress days, and I will...

    Prinergy Evo will not start

    When I go start our Prinergy Evo server, the screen says: "Prinergy Evo is starting". Then it just hangs there, and does not go beyond that point. Usually it will say how many server processes are running (30 of 30). At one point it finally said: Prinergy Evo is running. However no clients can...

    We use the Kodak Matchprint proofing system with our Epson 7890 inkjet. The black is printing using all colors, and is much too dark. On a recent job there was a block that had a 60 percent black tint. On the proof it came out looking like solid black. We has to assure the client that the job...

    Kodak Matchprint proofing paper

    We have the Kodak Matchprint Inkjet Proofing System, which uses Kodak semi-matte proofing paper, Kodak part number SM240P. Since we can no longer use Xpedx as our Kodak dealer, we had to switch to a different supplier. That supplier is telling us that Kodak no longer makes or sells it's...

    Epson 7600 paper feeding problem

    We used to do all of our imposition/content proofing on a Agfa Sherpa inkjet proofer, but finally the print head has died. Now we are using our old Epson 7600 printer for imposition/content proofing (we used to use it for contract color proofing). The problem we are having is that we have to...

    Imposition proofing paper

    We have an AgfaJet Sherpa 2 inkjet proofer that we use for our imposition proofs. This is not for color contract proofs since the quality is quite low. It is just to show the final imposed proof, folded and cut. Currently we are using Accent Opaque paper for our imposition proofs. The quality is...

    VDP software: What is out there, and what are recommendations?

    We have been doing more and more VDP, using either InDesign's merge script, or doing the merging in MS Word. Both are slow and bring the machines down to a crawl at times. We print on a Xerox 700 digital color press with a Fiery RIP with Command WorkStation 5 for our color work, and print on a...

    Printing to Nexus from Snow Leopard

    We just installed 2 new Macs with Snow Leopard 10.6.8. Slowly things are starting to work, but when we print to Nexus from InDesign CS 5.5, each separation shows up as a page in Nexus. This is using our raster workflow. When we print using our vector-to-raster workflow, the pages shows up...

    Fonts and Snow Leopard 10.6.8

    We just installed 2 new Macs, running Snow Leopard. We updated to 10.6.8 without doing any testing on 10.6.4. We have now found that all of our job fonts are corrupt, and are zero K in size. We check the fonts on our job server, and they show up as zero K on the new Macs, but the same fonts on...

    Will Preps 6 work with our Nexus workflow? We have a slightly older version of Nexus (8.4), and place the Nexus low-res Link EPS files into Preps (version 5) for imposition. My understanding is that Preps 6 will only accept PDF files. -Sev
