    Quark Memorial Service

    I don't think we owe Quark respect any more than any other brand in the marketplace. If a manufacturer doesn't keep up with marketplace demands, the buying public will choose a better product. This is subjective, of course, but it seems there is a consensus here; Quark has fallen behind...

    Running Prinect on a Windows 7 box

    Hey, all. I have a prepress PC workstation that I need to upgrade, and Heidelberg's official line is that Prepress Manager and Signa will not be compatible with Windows 7 until an end-of-year update is available. Unofficially, they say that it may or may not work in Windows XP compatibility...

    suprasetter feedback

    Our Suprasetter 74 with full automation was installed in February 2007, and we have had very few problems. The speed of the machine is what we expected with two lasers, and if we want more, we'll pay for more. In its current configuration, it stays WAY ahead of the presses. In our experience...

    No training short cuts that I'm aware of. I'd recommend the Heidelberg training.

    X-rite ATD 28" for sale

    It is an ATD sheetfed. We used it on a Heildelberg Speedmaster 74 before we bought Heildelberg's Image Control, which is a closed loop system. We bought the ATD new in late '05 and used it for about two years before it was replaced with Image Control. It has been in storage since, but I did hook...

    X-rite ATD 28" for sale

    Yes, it is. It has been tested and is in working condition, but it has not been re-certified by X-Rite. I've discounted the price as a result. Please email me with questions. Thanks, Jim

    Trueflow's Flatworker - What sort of full automation does it have?

    Being a Heidelberg Signastation guy, and having never used TrueFlow or Flatworker, I'm curious what sort of full automation Trueflow's Flatworker offers. I've heard several people mention it's automated capabilities, so I'm be interested in some details. Thanks in advance.

    2-sided proofing

    Re: 2-sided proofing Sorry. I'm not familiar with that error. Have you called Techsage? Even if they charge you for support, you'll probably save money on labor in the long term, once it's running unattended again. We upgraded from a Spinjet 1050 to a Spinjet 5500 last year and the difference...

    Who has the best all-around package for web-to-print?

    Greetings. I like the functionality of sites like 4over.com with online proofs and form based quotes. Does anyone know what package they have? Who has the best all around package for web-to-print?

    LCD monitor

    Re: LCD monitor We have a few Dell LCDs that were bundled with our Printready installation, and the lighting is VERY uneven on all of them. Even the Dell 20" Ultrasharp is not consistently lit, but we use it with an extended desktop for Palettes and impositioning so it's not a big deal...

    Tips and Tricks - A tip for better looking Grayscale images

    Re: Tips and Tricks - A tip for better looking Grayscale images Yes. It is an older trick, but I thought I'd post it after a discussion about duotones in another thread suggested simply converting CMYK > Grayscale. I wonder if anyone else would like to see a Tips and Tricks discussion here at...

    Tips and Tricks - A tip for better looking Grayscale images

    Re: Tips and Tricks - A tip for better looking Grayscale images You're right. I should have made that more clear. You have to click on the Lightness Channel to select it, and when you do THEN go to Image > Mode > Grayscale. This method deletes the A and B channels and changes the image to...

    Tips and Tricks - A tip for better looking Grayscale images

    Here's a cool trick to get (usually) better looking and printing grayscale images from CMYK or RGB images. This works best on darker images when you're concerned about losing detail in mids and shadows. It involves extracting the Lightness layer from a LAB color image, which is often a better...
