Preps Imposition Software

The Preps software is a prepress tool that you use to create press run layouts for bound-work impositions, ganged flat work, and step-and-repeat work. You can work on the fly in an interactive workspace, use stored templates for frequently repeated layouts, and print the production output to common file formats. It also supports varying degrees of workflow automation.

Hi guys, I work for a printing company, primarily focused on label production, and also general flat paper based commercial printing. We use Adobe CC applications for our pre-press production software, and are looking at assessing the best imposition solutions for going from artwork to plates for process jobs or pdfs for digital jobs. Preps is the imposition tool of choice in the commercial printing industry, providing the flexibility needed to build a workflow that suits your unique requirements.
