Some of our Megarip customers include:

 

We run seven wide-format printers, printing on a range of different media. We ran nesting tests to see whether Megarip would result in reduced media usage. Being a fine art printer, our media can be upwards of $20 per square metre. We calculated approximately 12% media savings through better nesting.

These savings will pay back the purchase price many times over.

Megarip gives us all the control that we need, while still providing a simple interface that our staff can understand. The post sales support is fantastic. We are incredibly happy that we made the switch."
