Free Posterjet v8.6 with Canon & Epson printers from Perfect Colours

Perfect Colours Posterjet

Wide format digital print reseller Perfect Colours has announced a promotion on the new version of Posterjet (version 8.6).  Perfect Colours’ customers will receive a free copy of the new Posterjet software when purchasing selected printers from the Epson Stylus Pro and Canon imagePROGRAF ranges.  The offer starts immediately and is valid until the end of May 2012.

Posterjet 8.6 uses the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 database engine which is ‘considerably more efficient and stable’ than the previous version SQL Express 2005.  It is fully compatible with the forthcoming Windows 8 operating system and a new Server Search feature has been added for customers with multiple Posterjet Servers.

Other features include a new integrated button to switch off printer status feedback communication for Canon iPF models.  This has been added to optimise the flow of information between Posterjet and multiple Canon printers, thus avoiding delays in printing when a particular printer is not available.  Cut marks have also been completely reengineered with improved marks for tiling jobs and simplified fitting and cut for tiled jobs with an overlap or gap.  Posterjet 8.6 now automatically adjusts the zoom in Nest Editor to fit all nest jobs into the preview, allowing users to immediately judge the result of the calculation.

Jason Burroughs, managing director of Perfect Colours, comments, “This new promotion applies to a selected range of Epson Stylus Pro and Canon imagePROGRAF printers and is designed to encourage our customers to make investment in new technology to help them increase their product offerings and ultimately their profit margins.  Posterjet is a proven RIP solution with a strong track record and gives users the potential to make savings on ink and media costs.  We are pleased to be offering the product to our customers free of charge with this promotion.”
