Create print estimates quickly and easily on a large variety of products: small format, large format, paper goods and screen printing.
VG7 puts at your disposal an advanced calculator, which compares any type of technology (digital and offset), to offer you an optimal solution, both in terms of economics, costs and revenues, and on a technical level, improving the yield according to your needs. The Print Configurator can be adapted to the business model of your company, thanks to a wide range of processes. It is also possible to set different types of calculation for each economic component of the estimate (linear, cursor, incremental, hourly,…).
With the Print Configurator you can manage printing machines, materials and waste, finishing and binding processes. You will have the possibility to use the advanced budgeting settings, for example for Pantone Colours, Paints, Hard Cover, Defined Yield, etc.
The types of products that can be estimated in the Print Configurator are:
Products at a list price without dynamic calculation due to the combination of different components and printing processes. Total price is calculated simply by multiplying unit price per quantity.
Multi-page articles such as books, magazines and brochures with different types of binding and eventual presence of shelf marks or other additional components such as inserts, cardboard covers, dust jackets or endpapers.
Single-page, single-sheet items, such as business cards, postcards, flyers, posters or leaflets, printed either with digital or offset technology, using paper sheets or rolls.
Products made using roll to roll and flatbed machines per square or linear meter, such as billboards, stickers, window decals, pre-spaced stickers, banners, textiles, flags, panels, canvas paintings and direct printing on rigid materials.
Pre-packaged overprintable envelopes for offset or digital machines, with the possibility of subsequent finishing after printing.
Multipage items where the same graphic is repeated on all pages. They can be made using different types of paper and can contain additional components such as cardboard or calendar base.
Articles with multiple components, coupled materials, dashboard and lining, die-cuts and other finishes such as boxes, shop displays, window signs, etc.
Products made using both rolls or sheets with the calculation of square and linear meters, frames and machine sheets. They can be used on glass, plastic, paper or fabric and can include different finishes such as die-cutting or hot stamping.
Products printed with techniques that include pad printing, screen printing or digital printing, such as customized clothing, gadget, merchandise and other items that can be personalized.
Customizable gadget and merchandising products can be sold by manully creating the price lists, or by integrating the management system with suppliers in order to import models, prices and stocks.
Customizable clothing can be sold by manully creating the price lists, or by integrating the management system with suppliers in order to import models, prices and stocks.
Some examples of services are graphic design, file verification, software installation, professional interventions of various kinds, ecc. They can either have a fixed price or be estimated specifically for a single customer.
VG7 platform allows you to find the calculation types best suited for the different products according to computation methods.
The price of each product can be determined in three ways:
Defining a fixed or quantity-tiered price for a configured product.
A fixed price is set for each combination of product variants in a CSV file.
The price is calculated by summing the single cost items defined in the Print Configurator.
The software, based on the parameterization of the processing phases and the economic components, compares different technologies (for example digital and offset printing) in order to determine the most economically advantageous and efficient solution for the product creation. At the end of the estimate calculation, the system offers more results, combining machines, materials, yield orientations and processes. This allows the operator to evaluate multiple possibilities both from a technical and economic point of view.
In the Print Configurator it is possible to establish criteria for discounts or mark-ups on the sales price, depending on the customer or the economic component of the individual estimate. This is the case for loyal customers or customers acquired during an event, who therefore benefit from special discounts.
