To celebrate the launch of the new EFI eXpress Photo RIP software, Velmex Distribution the UK distributor for Canon large format printers & EFI software products, are giving away this professional software free with all Canon 44” & 60” printers. The promotion will run in conjunction with the current Canon Star buy offer.
Velmex Distribution, the specialist distributor of Canon large format printers and EFI RIP software, has announced this week any Canon 44” or 60” large format printers purchased from them will receive a free copy of EFI’s new eXpress Photo RIP software. The promotion will run in conjunction with Canon’s ‘Star Buy’ offer. Launched in October this year, it offers the 44” Image PROGRAF iPF8100 and production iPF8000s at £3995(including stand). Any customers looking for a smaller 17” or 24” printer can add EFI Photo eXpress software to their order for £99. The regular retail price of EFI Photo eXpress is £560 and the postscript version has a retail price of £700.
The software is available for both Mac and PC; it includes a number of key features aimed at ensuring high quality, easily managed output.
The software is full of intuitive functions; it improves media utilisation with nesting, saving on time and media wastage; it automatically configures photos, (single and multi-image templates) and creates contact sheets. A bespoke feature allows users to create a ‘Collection’ of custom standard sizes, perfect for photo book printing. Tasks are achieved faster with the ‘Quick Set’ function, giving users the ability to preset and select quickly, options they use regularly; such as poster printing, photo printing or proofing. The full RGB workflow provides 16 bit for the highest quality output. All regular file formats are support: TIFF, JPEG, BMP, and PSD (customers can add postscript (PDF) at an additional charge). Latest media changes are easily managed with an online profile download. Customers can be kept up to date with new features by regular online software updates.
Mark Keeley, Managing Director of Velmex Distribution said, “EFI’s Photo eXpress is perfect for those looking to move to a 44” or 60” printer. This RIP is very easy to operate and provides plenty of tools to make larger format photo printing more cost effective and simpler. The savings offered on this combined bundle makes the decision to move to 44” or 60”printing more affordable than ever before.” Offers are available whilst stocks last.
