I am looking for some advice on print servers.

We have multiple computers (about 8 PC's and 5 Macs) printing directly to two large format (42") plotters.
This scenario is not ideal, and causes a lot of 'hiccups' in our work flow. What would it take to set up a print server to manage print jobs on these plotters?

Both are HP

Hi Greg,

We have been using ONYX Postershop for several years now with 2 HP plotters. I am impressed with the RIP and the ease of use.

I used the ONYX Production House a few years back and was quite happy with it.
I figured there might be a new kid on the block in preflight software.

I'll read up on postershop. Thanks for the tip
