    Trapping Software, any advice?

    Power Trapper maybe a lot more powerful than Instant Trapper, totally understand that however the price tag that comes with it is not nice, we have been quoted at nearly £6000 for the Esko Power Trapper and that by any standard is alot of money. We are not a big printers so i am looking at a...

    Trapping Software, any advice?

    CMYK prints the same on every printer!!!

    Many thanks for your advice Dov, So your saying that when i go to print our documents from Illustrator, we should export them via the PDF/x-4 option rather than than print it to a postscript separated file and then distill it under whatever settings we want? I have been told that printing our...

    Still using manual trapping?

    Many thanks Bill, I am liking the look of the Power Trapper i have to say, this would save so much time considering we use illustrator so much, it seems very flexible and editable, manual trapping can take so long and this seems to do it in seconds. Have you ever used it? How difficult is it...

Will look into the Heidelberg plug-in (PDF...
