"ONYX PrepEdge Pro software has been beautiful for setting up our banners and vehicle wraps," explains Scott Manwaring, Manager of Digital Print Services, Rainbow Sign & Banner, St George, Utah. "We took on a lot of banner and wrap jobs in the last couple of weeks and ONYX PrepEdge Pro software worked perfectly. I quickly removed bleed lines the customers had added, along with some bad clipping masks. It's easily saved us eight hours of time. Before using ONYX PrepEdge Pro software, we spent a lot of time on paneled jobs going back and forth making small changes between Illustrator software and our RIPs. ONYX PrepEdge Pro software just cuts out so many steps. Once a job is ready, we submit it once and we're done. With ONYX PrepEdge Pro software in our workflow we can cut days of lead-time off of our biggest jobs."
"Nothing needs to be done through Illustrator software anymore," describes Richard Nuhn, Manager of NC Pestill's Hamilton, Ontario, grand format production location. "On banners, we get unbelievable time savings with ONYX PrepEdge Pro software. For example, we produced two 2-foot by 10-foot banners that took us 22 minutes to prepare using Illustrator software. With ONYX PrepEdge Pro software, we produced them both in less than five minutes. Those job preparation savings add up. What used to be a weeks-worth of job prep time using Illustrator software, we can now do in a day using ONYX PrepEdge Pro software. More importantly for us, job preparation isn't a bottleneck so we can do today's work today."
