How it works
PrintUI uses a highly scalable and secure web-hosted (SaaS) solution for a managed web-to-print workflow. It uses a full Adobe online InDesign workflow for template creation and management. This is coupled with PrintUIs online InDesign-based server as the composition engine for generating a wide range of branded materials. These include brochures, data sheets, signage, ads, and more.
An authorized brand designer, using Adobe InDesign with a PrintUI plugin, easily creates templates. Once uploaded, authorized marketing consumers and sales personnel create customized versions of each piece, using an online editing and preview environment. Brand-critical elements are safely locked in position, as are font choices and available images. Users may easily create what they need, and submit each piece for approval, without risking the companys visual brand identity. PrintUI easily integrates with Digital Asset Management (DAM) and other essential business systems.
