EstiMate Software Unveils Flatbed Digital Print Pricing Plug-In

EstiMate Software's new Flatbed Digital Print Pricing Plug-In addresses all the specifics for properly pricing flatbed digital prints.

Online PR News – 15-October-2009 – – EstiMate Software, provider of pricing software to the sign industry, has just released a brand-new pricing plug-in for flatbed digital printing. This new plug-in addresses the complicated issues involved with flatbed print pricing such as material waste calculations and the speed differential between different printers.

"This plug-in has been a long time in the making," says Mark Smith, company president. "Our users have been asking for a complement to our wide format digital print pricing plug-in that takes into account the specific differences between flatbed printing and wide format printing. We believe with this plug-in we've managed to hit it out of the park."

By using 'best fit' nesting logic, this new plug-in figures out the best strategy for nesting prints onto a substrate and accurately calculates the material waste involved.

As in all of EstiMate's plug-ins, the Flatbed Digital Print Pricing Plug-In takes into account all the specifics of the job, such as the printer, print mode, ink, surface preparation, RIP time, cutting, and laminating.

This new plug-in will even allow the user to adjust how they charge for scrap, and charge differently for waste material than for materials actually printed and used in the job.
