We were wide format printers once. We knew our workflows could improve, and so could our color management. But when the manufacturer-owned RIPs and ‘big’ RIPs weren’t delivering the goods, we decided to write the right software ourselves.
PrintFactory is 100% independent. We think for ourselves, and that means we’ll always think the way you do. You wanted software that could turn your team into better printers ~ profile-ninjas ~ and bring you bigger profits from day one? Okay. That’s what we did.
You could say we wrote some time-saving software. PrintFactory is workflow software that handles repetitive tasks using networked apps, smart tools, and XML instructions to speed things up (instead of PDF processing, which slows things down). But that’s quite a mouthful. You might say our algorithms deliver higher-quality consistent color, anywhere, every single time, first time, by device-linking any number of printers across multi-platform networks …and that attention to color is our speciality. But that’s still too much for a Tweet.
We did write PrintFactory’s more advanced features with large, lights-out production and specialist printers in mind. Textiles. Ceramics. That kind of thing. But we also created features and wizards to solve some of the toughest challenges faced by every wide format printer today.
As printers ourselves, we know where the problems really are…
