Many companies removed features from “high-end” imposition products, and resold the feature-handicapped version at a reduced price to address the needs of smaller print shops and print-on-demand (POD) workflows – our approach was different”. He continues “IMPress was built with small printer in mind – it is very much different than our Impostrip product, the language is different, the user interface is unique, the concept of imposing files is less daunting – it was built with the idea of introducing prepress and POD professionals to imposition, without scaring them back to imposing EPS pages in QuarkXPress – and taking all day doing it. The unique usability of IMPress has not gone unnoticed, it’s become the imposition technology behind powerhouse digital brands past and present, including AGFA’s ChromaPress, Xerox DocuColor, Xeikon digital presses and it is quickly becoming the imposition tool of choice for the flood of new print professionals who are embracing 4-up CTP solutions like the innovative HighWater Python available from GraphLine. IMPress helps keep GraphLine customer’s outputting plates quickly and efficiently, extracting the most value from their CTP investment". Tom Brancato, Director Digital Systems, GraphLine, “GraphLine expects and receives constant innovation from its product and technology partners, because GraphLine customers’ need to keep a competitive edge in a crowded print market. We’re excited about this great GraphExpo special, because it combines the technology of two great companies – and Ultimate’s IMPress product gives our customers that extra advantage that keeps them growing and profitable.
