Carbonless, two parts alike


Posted: 25 April 2012

Using "Quote Bookprice" or Carbonless, spec 3-part, top copy is an Order Form but parts 2 and 3 are a Delivery Note (alike). Only 2 plate changes. As far as I can tell, "Bookprice" costs a makeready for each individual part. Am I missing something?

I worked on this but it seems MF will always put 2 plates even if the copy is the same. I do not think it is a big deal on most jobs. Will test more but just do not see a way at this time.

While plates and makeready are a non-issue with Digital, the way to accommodate your specs with Offset is by either

Subtracting the cost of one plate and makeready from a "bookprice" type estimate or order;
Creating first a My Prepress item as shown, then a My Postpress item for collating, and adding both to a precollated carbonless set.
