    Variable data files as a service?

    Thanks for the info. I primarily need eCommerce print that supports complex variable data products. I'm thinking using the system to offer VDP as a service could generate additional revenue.

    Variable data files as a service?

    I'm looking to branch out on my own with w2p storefronts and variable data programming. I'm wondering if there is a market to provide VDP programming and file creation (PDF) for printers who may not be able to invest in VDP software and are missing out on jobs because of it. I'm skilled in XMPie...

    Avanti Slingshot users in Tennessee or Indiana?

    3rd Party Inks for HP Scitex FB500?

    Magenta and light magenta are very weak and salmon in hue; the black, cyan and light cyan are weak. I suspect there are no 3rd party inks available, but it's worth asking.

    How do I know what version to open with CS'ssss

    We also use Bridge to determine what the creation version is. We then create a sub-folder such as CS5, CS5.5...whatever. That way the next operator knows what to do. In some cases, we get files for the same job from different sources and have to manage the job in separate versions–lots of fun...
