Powerful prepress capabilities make it easy.

FreeFlow Makeready is a robust prepress tool that streamlines labor-intensive operations. Using "what you see is what you get" (WYSIWYG) page programming, drag-and-drop document assembly, and late-stage editing features, it helps you prepare even the most complex documents for digital printing easily and efficiently. It gives you the ability to combine electronic and paper documents to create a unique file and print stream - and the flexibility to use FreeFlow Makeready with many industry-leading scanners.



FreeFlow Makeready is compatible with any TWAIN-compliant scanner. And if your print engine has an embedded scanner, you can bring jobs back into FreeFlow Makeready - or retrieve them from the print server. You can even automatically retrieve processed jobs from the print server or import existing Adobe® PDF files.



FreeFlow Makeready's WYSIWYG interface lets you preview your PDFs on-screen before you print a page. Integrated Adobe® image-editing capabilities let you handle late-stage edit requests quickly and easily.
Prepress features such as an "Electronic Light Table" ensure page-to-page and front-to-back registration accuracy, saving you time and preventing costly errors when going to print. You can easily combine hardcopy and electronic documents; add, delete, or move and rotate pages; and add tabs and tab annotations (including automated tab creation using the bookmarks already within your PDF).

Wide selection of printers. One consistent workflow. FreeFlow Makeready supports windows printing and enables WYSIWYG print submission to FUJIFILM Business Innovation digital colour and monochrome printers, featuring the widest selection in the industry. You can even save job tickets to unify job submission for your FUJIFILM Business Innovation printers, simplifying your reprint processes.
