Once you set up the parameters, tFLOW automatically creates proofs based on your templates. Create your own layout with the information you would like to appear on the proof, and tFLOW will autofill the fields as well as automatically place artwork on landscape and portrait layouts. You can also elect to add elements such as marks, trim, live area indicators, and finishing parameters. Proofs are automatically sent out for approval, and can also be downloaded as PDFs.
tFLOW puts the “pre” back into preflight. Speed up your turnaround times as files are automatically checked when they come into your shop, not after they have been sitting in folders for a day. You, your customer, and sales team will know if files are printable within a couple of minutes of receiving them. Files are not just checked, but also fixed, with options such as adding bleed or marks, flattening transparencies, converting fonts to outlines, and checking spot color integrity, to name a few.
Real-time information and updates. Stop running around and bombarding everyone with emails. tFLOW will allow you to see status updates on all of your jobs every 15 seconds. Keep track of jobs which are still waiting for approvals, missing artwork, on hold due to preflight errors, and ready to be sent to production. All without a single phone call or email.
You can automate repetitive prepress tasks. Let designers be designers—spend time on custom projects by automating the boring stuff. Life’s too short to spend the day adding grommet marks, cut paths, bleeds, fold lines, etc. tFLOW doesn’t mind, and some would say that it is way faster than anyone they have ever met!
Stop the email madness! Tired of receiving emails, and being CC’d on countless others? tFLOW allows you to collaborate in real time, making comments and annotations on the proof quick and simple. Everything about the job is visible to everyone on the team—not lost in somone’s inbox.
