Imposition, one of the fundamental tools of commercial-quality printing, is lacking in growing numbers of new digital and quick print installations, as well as with designers. To help novice printers and designers produce high quality materials faster and with much less waste, Dynagram is breaking tradition with a powerful $400 category offering bound to raise eyebrows among industry pundits and the competition. The new product, inpO2 Wizard, includes features common to high-end imposition solutions.
"Why," asks CEO Francois Guerard, "if we are now able to give people technology and a price that will make them successful, must we hold back because of old industry habits that are outdated and greedy? We need to encourage new business owners, investors, and students of design and printing to avail themselves of the best products, to keep publishing alive and progressive in these changing times."
Perceptions about complexity and price are eliminated
When people new to publishing production look at imposition, they frequently dismiss the best-of-breed products specifically engineered for high quality publishing because they perceive them to be complex and expensive.
"Growing numbers of shops, inplants, and designers are being held back, and many don't even know why," says Guerard, an industry veteran whose publishing technology businesses include world- famous imposition leader, Dynagram.
Dynagram provides a feature-rich answer to the problem in the all new inpO2 Wizard, which brings easy to create PDF imposition layouts to Adobe Acrobat Pro. It is designed for digital printers, quick printers and designers who need quick and easy, yet complete, imposition layouts.
inpO2 Wizard based on powerful and proven inpO2 application
Based on the powerful and proven inpO2 4.0 for Acrobat, a full featured PDF imposition solution, the inpO2 Wizard application offers a complete set of imposition tools for creating imposition layouts of just about any size or length. Imposition styles include saddle stitch, perfect bound, advanced step and repeat, cut and stack, and N-Up. Utilizing the Wizard interface within Acrobat, users can create anything from simple printer spreads for digital printing, to more complex folded layouts with press and sheet marks such as slug lines and side guides for offset printing.
"We've been seeing an increase in requirements for an entry level imposition product for digital and entry level offset," says Guerard. "The new inpO2 Wizard is designed to address the needs of these markets by providing many powerful features, with a simple to use interface at a great price point."
With the inpO2 Wizard, users can impose any PDF document, of any length, based on different layout styles and selecting from a library of layouts -- onto just about any sheet size with required press and sheet marks needed. Marks supported include crop, trim, center and corner marks, along with side guides and text marks. In addition, the step and repeat jobs can be simple multiple up of a single page, or multiple jobs can be step and repeated in rows or columns for easy finishing.
