How JobReady Works

Windows | Macintosh

Using JobReady is simple and straightforward. Once the software is installed on your computer, all you have to do is hit Print from your favorite page layout program (just like you would if you were printing a hard copy proof for yourself). Choose the printer called Cordes Printing, Inc. from list of available options. A dialog like the one to the right will appear, providing an instant proof of your order. It will then walk you through the steps needed to place your order on our website. When you're done, the dialog will close, and you can get back to work. In the meantime, we'll receive your print-ready PDF file with all of the fonts, images, and graphics already in place.
