Product Details

FastRIP is a “Postscript” printer driver for your Epson inkjet. The FastRIP driver's job is to convert and control the image and then send it to the Epson printer.

Screen printers need halftones to simulate tones for realistic images. Color inkjet output does not use half-tones and the inkjet manufacturers have not designed that function into their software. Typically, an Image Processing language called Adobe Postscript is used to create halftone dots. There are also different versions of Postscript (like the standard Epson Postscript RIP) that won't shape halftones, but acurately reproduce Pantone Color, not create halftone dots because they expect to reproduce your picture directly on the photo paper, not make positives.

What is FastRIP™?
FastRIP™ is a PostScript interpreter called a Raster Image Processor or RIP. Without PostScript it is impossible to print high-quality halftone dots on a "non-PostScript" inkjet printer such as an Epson 2200 or 4000. Even if your printer has PostScript, it may not be able to print halftone dots because PostScript is often just used to calibrate and balance colors on an inkjet. The Epson "RIP" does not print halftone dots! FastRIP™ does!

And, FastRIP™ tells the inkjet printer to lay down a much denser deposit of black ink. You will think you are looking at imagesetter quality output. And... the halftone dots are carefully calibrated so if you specify a 50% dot you get a 50% dot on the film!

Easy To Use
With FastRIP™ you print directly from Adobe® Photoshop®, Illustrator®, Corel™ Draw, Freehand or FastFilms™. There are no additional steps and no confusing commands or "hot folders." Just press the print button as you normally would. You specify the halftone line count and angle just like you always do. And, when you burn screens from clear film with crisp, sharp, black images that are as dense as imagesetter output, you will find your screens expose MUCH better. No more playing with exposure times like you do with laser output. Your halftone dots are a thing of beauty!
