How does Postpress work?


Posted: 22 Dec 2005 03:32 pm


I am having trouble getting my head around the postpress section. In the Configure section with setup, price and Minimum ... I understand, but then the Quantity and per set I do not understand. Help please. Also from some of the posts by Craig and Hal I assume you two are pilots (or soon to be pilots) ... I am a private pilot as well. Maybe that is why we are drawn to Morning Flight?

Not a pilot here, although I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night. I think this one is for Hal, I don't see the per set unless you are in the My Postpress section. In that case, let's say you added an additional postpress for padding and you wanted to charge $1.00 (nice to dream) per pad you'll want to check the per set box, that way it would add $1.00 per pad and not $1.00 per the number of sheets.

As for Quantity, the only place where I see that is when I am making a quote, it would tell me how many pads (back to that again) I am going to have, based on my finished size and press sheet size.

Hal, please feel free to shoot me down if I'm wrong!

Hi Daryl,

Craig nailed this one. Looks like he's getting ready for his Gold Wings. And no, Craig, Holiday Inn's don't count towards your sky miles. As for the pilot thing, I used to be, courtesy of the U.S. Army. Haven't held a stick in some years. Still love flying, though. Bet that'll let the cat out of the bag on how I arrived at the name "Morning Flight."

Best wishes to all for the holidays!

Thanks guys, I get it now, I was looking for something more difficult. I was trying to do wrap-around covers for NCR invoices and got confused with the term sets. (I was thinking of NCR sets instead of sets in a book). Have a Great Holiday!
