    Because we take on so many small jobs for so many different clients, we need to have a process where things can just be streamlined and happen on their own as much as possible. And it has kind of come together overtime and evolved. Catherine Dentino, Co-Owner of Fireball Printing

    Scalable is something that we really need at this moment. It helps us to scale with the company and the amount of orders. The nice thing about (Ultimate Impostrip) Scalable is that we can upscale or downscale at will. We can change our plans. We can send a quick email and have twice the processing power available to our impositions, so we can keep up with the peak-season, but also have a stable flow in the off-seasons. Chris de Jonge, Head of IT

  • boone-graphics

    We often don’t touch any of the jobs that are imposed. The jobs come through, workflow picks it up, automates it through imposition, outputs it for the operator, operator releases, operator then takes it to finishing and it’s already set-up, it’s already embedded, it already has the production code. The machine scans the code and runs the job. Dave Tanner, VP of Operations

    After we first configured Ultimate Impostrip®, it’s just been chugging along quite happily. We’ve not really had to tinker with it much since them. It’s been working well! We’re going to be shaking up our prepress automation quite substantially in the future. I feel Ultimate Impostrip® is going to play a pivotal role in this. Dan Alderman, Workflow Manager

    We at Lightning Press are very happy with the Impostrip product. We’ve been using it with every order for over 20 years. We would not be able to function without it. We are unlike typical commercial printers, as we are a short run book printer. We have been able to adjust Impostrip’s hot folders to our needs to make the most efficient/economical use of each sheet of paper. I would recommend any printer to test drive Impostrip!

    The production of the new products runs through a workflow based on Enfocus Switch, Ultimate Impostrip® and Ultimate Bindery®. The sheets are imposed using Ultimate Impostrip®, which has the speed required for the high throughput at MyPoster. The solution streamlines every aspect of the imposition workflow with versatile tools. At MyPoster, each job is imposed individually, gang forms are not used. Ultimate Impostrip® also creates a file in LayCrimp format. This is a standardized output format for further processing. Ingo Mannherz, Technical Product Manager at MyPoster

  • sg360-testimonial

    The best thing about Ultimate Impostrip® is that it will pretty much handle any imposition we throw at it. I mean we've utilized a lot of things as far as Dutch cuts, custom marks and things of that nature, but it's just the amount of files that it's actually able to chuck on and able to get out in a fraction of the time that we were doing it before. It seems to end up getting easier and easier. The new release has a lot more functionalities than the previous one. It's been wonderful. John Zawisza, Director of Digital Operations at SG360

    Ultimate Impostrip® is very easy to use. The team was up to speed on it in no time, which was great because at the time the team was also learning the KM-1, and I thought; ‘Oh is this going to be too much?’ But really, it was a super easy transition to using Ultimate Impostrip®. We’ve taken it one step further by introducing ‘hot folders’. We are able to upload the files and it’s fully automated right to the KM-1, and we couldn’t do that without Ultimate Impostrip®. Audrey Jamieson, President of Marketing Kitchen. Markham (ON), Canada

    To be quite honest, you know Impostrip basically came at the right time at the right place so to say, because of the vision bolding this true book of one solution we didn’t have so much time going to the market and look for what other applications are available. And the company we work with locally has given quite a lot of advice and has been very forthcoming and helping us set up exactly what we have today.

  • We chose Ultimate Impostrip® because it can impose for our production needs including all our offset and 4 color press and at the same time it can impose for our Nexpress and our Xerox printers. We absolutely needed a one source solution; we did not want software for offset and a separate one for digital. What is important for us also is that Impostrip is updated timely and Ultimate technical support department is amazing Tony Seaman, director of Graphics Services, University of Mississippi
