Adobe UK has announced that it is shipping PressReady, a printing and proofing tool for desktop-colour printers.

PressReady is Adobe’s first shrink-wrapped printing solution, for creating colour prints from select desktop inkjets - using PostScript 3, PDF technology, and industry standards. A list of supported inkjets can be found on Adobe’s Web site.

The software is a host-based PostScript 3 RIP, optimized for graphic arts inkjets. It includes advanced colour management, based on ICC colour profiles, as well as tools for creating and printing colour-managed PDF files.

PressReady is available now from graphic arts channels, priced at £90.
