MadeToPrint QuarkXPress available for Quark Publishing Platform 2017

Developer of solutions for PDF creation, printing and content correction workflows for the publishing and printing markets, axaio software, has announced the availability of MadeToPrint XPress for Quark Publishing Platform 2017.

Publishing PlatformProduction processes leading to the final printed document need to be as efficient and reliable as possible, especially when handling specialized documents in multiple languages and versions. axaio MadeToPrint offers streamlined and faultless production with standardized file naming and path handling, adding info bars, handling language layers and providing an imposed file ready for digital print output. This adds a tremendous efficiency increase, and considerable time and cost savings. Additionally, MadeToPrint Auto can be integrated with different editorial systems, as for example Quark Publishing Platform, for a status-based output.

O’Sullivan Communications, a long-time MadeToPrint customer in the US, is developing a variety of multilingual products and services to meet project requirements in any industry. The company has a multilingual, multicultural in-house team of skilled professionals who provide among others layout and publishing, translations, prepress, and printing. MadeToPrint Auto for Quark Publishing Platform is a fixed part of their standardized print production workflow for many years, as it ensures a reliable and consistent output of all different document versions.

The team around Marty Yaeger, vice president — Publishing Technology of O’Sullivan Communications, relies on MadeToPrint in their daily work. “From day one, we have experienced an excellent ROI and have an all digital workflow. Accuracy and consistency of file preparation are critical to our operation, and MadeToPrint ensures both. We have enjoyed huge time-savings with the automation and handsfree operation of MadeToPrint. Time after time, it has proven to be a must-have tool that we rely on heavily. Without this tool, we would need at least one employee to perform the functions provided by MadeToPrint, and hope this person can provide the accuracy and consistency of a machine,” says Yaeger.

Pricing and availability
The new MadeToPrint Auto version is available at a cost of € 2,490, and with integration to Quark Publishing Platform at € 4,490.

A free trial version of MadeToPrint is available on the axaio website and can be used without any restrictions.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
