A new trapping engine

A new trapping engine

Manually trapping packaging artwork can take hours and requires highly skilled professionals.

The new trapper in DeskPack 20 handles highly complex packaging designs. DeskPack can trap files fully automatically. Exceptions can be saved and will be used after a change is made to the file, so there’s no need to retrap the whole file.

  • Trap jobs 80% faster!
  • Fully automated trapping
  • Fully customizable

Connection to ‘native PDF’ workflows

DeskPack 20 allows users to export PDF+ files to native PDF workflows on the Automation Engine. Native PDF is the standard for most print files in packaging.

A key feature of this is the support for ‘Processing Steps’. Processing Steps is an ISO standard that ensures that assets are delivered in a standardized, structured way.
