That way you increase your efficiency when generating print data while you improve the quality of those at the same time. The software allows flawless and precise working. With the Commercial Print Extension you can benefit from cost and time savings as well as a high production stability.
Let the Commercial Print Extension work for you – automatic and precise:
Automatic artwork trimming to cutting die elements for production: The “trim cutting to die” function saves you time consuming manual cropping in a separate editor.
Automated creation of varnish masks: The function "Create varnish masks" creates a specific color for all printed areas for varnish finishing.
Automated creation of white masks: The “Create white masks” function avoids all manual tasks involved in underlaying a white mask when printing on transparent materials.
Automated intelligent bleed generation: This function adds bleed to the print data on the basis of the PDF trim box or a free-form cutting die shape.

PDF-Trapping: An additional layer to the original file is generated, which allows the customer to validate the trapping result as needed and, if required, to make manual adjustments.
Extract spot colors from PDF files: Cut lines or white masks can be removed for printing and simultaneously, separate files only with spot colors can be created for further processing, e.g. by the cutter.
