No question: Web to Print is one of the hottest topics around. It's no wonder then that workflow and color management specialist ColorGATE is presenting its own W2P solution for large-format printing at this year's FESPA Digital Europe (booth C20/Hall A4). What's really sensation about this, however, is the price: the basic fee for the CG Web to Print ASP version amounts to an unbelievable EUR 199 a month, with transaction costs of a maximum of 5 percent, depending on order volume. That's hard to believe - after all, other Web-to-Print systems can cost EUR 25,000 and more in annual licensing fees. ColorGATE Managing Director Thomas Kirschner comments: "With our very fairly priced Pay-per-Print model, we want to give every interesting print services provider the opportunity of taking advantage of the top-class range of functions offered by CG Web to Print for more efficient business processes right from the beginning."
The new standard for LFP standard products
Posters, banners, displays, roll-ups, canvas prints: CG Web to Print enables the production of all popular LFP products in outstanding quality - and ensures the print services provider quicker and more profitable business, thanks to perfectly coordinated, highly automated work processes from quoting right on up to invoicing.
The basic version already makes it possible for open shops to be set up for the "digital walk-in customers" in the Business-to-Consumer sector (B2C) parallel to closed shops for the B2B sector. The appearance of the shops can be designed to look exactly like the customer's own corporate design.
Unrivaled around the world: 12 million images available at a mouse click
A module that provides a link to image databases can be added to CG Web to Print as an option. This gives the end user a very convenient way to select his or her favorite image from the virtually inexhaustible resources of Fotolia, an internationally active stock photo agency, and send it directly to CG Web to Print to have it printed as a poster or a canvas print. "Access to 12 million high-quality images available at a mouse click - that is something that no other W2P software can currently offer," says ColorGATE boss Kirschner with conviction.
And of course, CG Web to Print is perfectly compatible with any other popular RIP software.
CG Web to Print Unlimited - the online shop with unlimited possibilities
In the CG Web to Print Unlimited premium version, there are no limitations in terms of data volume or product spectrum. The integrated, powerful PDF editor makes it possible to easily process individualized large-format print products - without having to learn how to use any complicated graphics software. Thanks to the templates already stored, the print data produced always reflects the customer's own corporate design. And it's just as easy and uncomplicated to use CG Web to Print Unlimited to design, order and fully automatically produce such print jobs as brochures, catalogs and business stationery.
