Premedia Software Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of FixMyPrintFile, a new SaaS (Software as a Service) solution for preflighting and correcting digital print files. The service imports a variety of file formats and generates optimized, print-ready PDF/X output. The service is designed for small and medium size publishers and printers who need the capabilities of a high-end, high-value production solution but without the high-end costs. FixMyPrintFile utilizes a cost-effective pay-as-you-go model providing publishers and printers maximum flexibility to improve their production workflow while keeping costs at a minimum.
“Small and medium size publishers and printers have the same file issues as large publishers and printers – incorrect color spaces, 4-color black text, complex files that won’t RIP – but with fewer resources to get them fixed,” says Greg Firestone, Director of Product Development at Premedia Software. “FixMyPrintFile is a solution which provides powerful preflight and file correction capabilities but in a delivery and price model suitable for smaller companies.”
“It’s very quick and easy to use. Before we started using FixMyPrintFile, I would spend up to 20 minutes trouble-shooting a customer file, only to end up making it a TIFF file to get it through our workflow. Now I just upload the problematic files and seconds later download a corrected, print-ready PDF,” says Thomas Berrigan, Production Designer at the Daily Times Chronicle. “FixMyPrintFile has exceeded my expectations and quickly become a vital tool in our daily production.”
