Fields of application
The production processes leading to the final printed document need to be as efficient and reliable as possible, especially when handling specialised documents in multiple languages and versions. axaio MadeToPrint is the ideal gate keeper and offers streamlined and faultless production with standardised file naming, adding info bars, handling language layers and finally providing a fully imposed ready to print file. Needless to say that this adds a tremendous efficiency increase, and considerable time and cost savings. MadeToPrint can easily be integrated in any production automation solution. A configurator for Enfocus Switch enables an easy configuration of the entire workflow.
For creative agencies
Creative and production teams often struggle with insufficient or unfriendly document output procedures inside industry leading publishing tools. In comes the axaio MadeToPrint, the intelligent printing and exporting add-on to Adobe® InDesign/InCopy/QuarkXPress/Illustrators. It relieves designers for all technicalities of preparing files for print. It solves output flaws, misprints, issues with layers, etc… by extending, enhancing, checking and streamlining all output processes. Production managers can create output jobsets once, making them available to all users, to get identical output from every workstation with one mouse click.
For packaging design and prepress teams
Today, Adobe Illustrator remains the tool of choice for the creation of packaging designs. At the same time, PDF is gaining popularity as the file format of choice for file exchange and review. With MadeToPrint for Illustrator, axaio provides a solution to automate PDF output from Illustrator with all the advantages such as cost savings and reduced errors.
MadeToPrint for Adobe Illustrator is the perfect tool to automate the creation of different packaging versions, standardise file naming and increase output consistency. Once an output specification is set up in a MadeToPrint JobSet all files processed with that JobSet will consistently fit the same specification. It also allows you to extract all kinds of versions from the same master file, different language versions, low resolution for customer approval, a technical specification version for making the die cuts and more. Packaging designers and pre-press professionals are now able to create PDF files from Illustrator, without having to worry whether complex layer structures are correctly handled, or whether naming conventions and other production specifications are set correctly.
