What is Kodak Preps?

an industry leading imposition software that can be used as a standalone application, or part of an advanced workflow

How many Preps licenses does GCM have in total?

60


What type of Preps license does GCM have?

a "floating" license for its integration with Prinergy

What does Agfa Apogee use as its imposition engine?

Preps


What does Prinergy Connect and Evo use as their imposition engine?

Preps

Preps can do ____________, ______________ and _________________ jobs.

book signatures, flatwork and ganged jobs

Define Preps Template

- Templates contain collections of generic, reusable signatures for imposing Preps jobs


- When you select and apply a signature from a template to a job, Preps flows the job's pages through the sigs framework to produce imposed output


- you can create, store and reuse templates


- Templates define important things like marks, sheet size, impositions and binding styles


Define Preps Signature

- A press sheet with an imposition style, folding pattern and imposition set up


- Sigs are added to Preps jobs for creating your imposition file


- Multiple sigs can be contained with a preps template

Define Preps Imposition

- An imposition "container" is added to each Preps signature that holds your instructions about how and where the pages are to be placed on the press sheet


- Impositions define the # of pages in the signature, the final page size, and the head orientation of the pages


- Also define the placement and offset of pages, as well as gutters and centre mark info

Define Preps Job

- A file that is staging ground for the final imposition


it make contain content files (PDFs, blank placeholders), and imposed signatures


- This can be the entire product, or even more than 1 product


Can be a collection of multiple templates

Preps Interface: Products

Preps Interface: Products

- Products > Parts > Sections


- Shows parts of the product (usually talking about a book)


- can have more than 1 part

Preps Interface: Files

Preps Interface: Files

- Content PDFs - as a standalone or as a placeholder


- Would be used as a workflow option


- You can drag and drop individual pages from PDF into imposition

Preps Interface: Properties

- Changes based on what you have selected


- all the information you need for the job

What is Front Lip also called?

Low folio

What is Back Lip also called?

High Folio

What are the important things to consider when creating digital imposition?

- getting the pages in the right order


- enough trim for multiple passes


- double bleeds (sometimes)


- trim & fold marks


- gutters and spacing


- paper gripper, colour bar and lip allowances


- press marks

In Preps, there are marks that can be added to the imposition outside the trim area called _____________.

Smart Marks

What are examples of Smart Marks?

- Dupmarks


- Text Marks


- Line Marks


- Registration Marks


- Collation Marks


- Crop Marks


- Fold Marks

What are the purpose of Crop Marks?

- Marks that show where to cut
- Outside of the press sheet
- Can tell Preps not to put marks when they will interfere


- Marks that show where to cut


- Outside of the press sheet


- Can tell Preps not to put marks when they will interfere


What is the purpose of a QC Bar?

- Quality Control Bar
- Helps you with more than just colour..
- tells you solid CMYK
- Overprints
- tints of each colour (calc dot gain)
- Slurr target
- Usually at tail edge of press sheet

- Quality Control Bar


- Helps you with more than just colour..


- tells you solid CMYK


- Overprints


- tints of each colour (calc dot gain)


- Slurr target


- Usually at tail edge of press sheet


What is the purpose of a Registration Mark?

to verify press registration between units

to verify press registration between units

What is the purpose of the side guide/bounce mark?

- Indicates positioning of the side guide on press
- printed right on the edge of the press sheet
- sheet can bounce around, side to side, up & down
if the sheet moves a little the guide will move

- Indicates positioning of the side guide on press


- printed right on the edge of the press sheet


- sheet can bounce around, side to side, up & down


if the sheet moves a little the guide will move


What is the purpose of the Plate Control Strip?

- to verify calibration and output of the plate prior to printing
- goes on the plate
- different tint values to check for consistency

- to verify calibration and output of the plate prior to printing


- goes on the plate


- different tint values to check for consistency


What is the purpose of Text Marks?

- Used to convey information about the job


- can be static or variable

What is static text?

static text is input at the same time the electronic imposition is created and does not change

What is variable text?

- Variable text used predefined variables to represent certain text that will be extracted from the job at the time of output


- Variable text reduces errors because even if the job info changes, the text mark will stay current


EX. $Colour, $Sig, $Side

Outputting from Preps

- Up to this point there is no difference on how Preps is set up with regards to using it as a standalone product or as a part of a "workflow"


- the biggest difference between the 2 ways is:


a) Standalone tool, the output is to a device, or to a PostScript of PDF File


b) As part of a workflow, the output is JDF, or Adobe Job Ticket

Printing to a device, PostScript, or PDF file will create a final file of the imposed pages that can be processed by a ___________ or ____________.

RIP, device

For Prinergy we need to create a _____________________________ (4) to use with the RIP

Unpopulated Adobe Job Ticket

What does a populated Adobe Job ticket have that an unpopulated one doesnt?

has pages assigned, while an unpopulated AJT doesnt have any files or pages assigned to the imposition

What two files do you need to keep together and not change their file name when you output to an AJT?

.pjtf and .ps files
