We were wide format printers once. We knew our workflows could improve, and so could our colour management. But when the manufacturer-owned RIPs weren’t delivering the goods, we decided to write the right software ourselves.
As printers ourselves, we know where the problems really are…
PrintFactory is 100% independent and privately owned.
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.
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). Our algorithms deliver high-quality consistent colour, anywhere, every time, first time, by device-linking any number of printers across multi-platform networks …and that attention to colour is our speciality.
We wrote 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.
