What is Preflight Tool?
- 1 minute to read
When you obtain pre-designed files for printing, you may want to verify that they are compatible with your printing equipment. You may also need a preflight step in your ordering process so that your customers can see if their design uses the correct color space, fits the product surface, and that all design elements are within trim lines. Aurigma has implemented the Preflight Tool to cover these use cases.
The Aurigma Preflight Tool represents a web application based on the UI Framework to validate single page and multi-page products as well as designs in both raster and vector formats. You can validate PDF, AI, JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, PSD, and EPS images. Also, this online tool allows you to auto-fix users' designs without editing them manually. After that, the Preflight Tool renders the resulting product and returns an array of URLs that link to page previews and a URL of the print-ready PDF file.
After you have installed the Preflight Tool, you can start working with this tool:
- Upload a file.
- Validate the file.
- If the file is invalid, upload another file or fix the found errors.
- Render print-ready files.
- Get links to print files.
In this section, you can learn how to configure and use this tool.
