David Watson, President and CEO, Ultimate, “Newspaper workflow systems have typically been out of reach to smaller newspapers because of two main reasons; cost and complexity. We address these problems with a user-friendly, newspaper workflow that is first and foremost simple-to-use, and also meets the budget criteria of smaller newspaper operations.” He continues “Impostrip has long been recognized as the easiest way to make plates for commercial printers – now newspaper professionals can benefit from our industry leading knowledge and experience of making plate ready signatures”
