CD-Designer label creation software is also included with the PrismPlus! This software allows you to import graphics and text. Features include serialization, bar codes, and data merging capabilities. However, you don't need to be limited to the tools provided because the printer works well with such industry-standard software as Adobe® Illustrator®, Adobe® Photoshop®, Macromedia® FreeHand®, QuarkExpress®, and CorelDRAW®. Graphic designers can compose labels using the software of their choice.
One unique aspect of the PrismPlus! when used in a suitable Rimage system, is its Perfect Print feature. Perfect Print enables you to print variable data such as names and account numbers on a disc that has already been silk-screened.
An optical sensor in the Rimage transporter detects a small index mark that is silk-screened in the index ring along with your silk-screened design. The transporter then rotates the disc to the correct orientation so your customized printing will always be aligned with your original silk-screened artwork.
