PrintSmith is setup to calculate cutting by the number of cuts, but did know that you could also set it up to calculate cutting by the number of lifts? Why would you want to do that? For a very simple reason, the PrintSmith manual tells you up front that the number of cuts is only an estimate and that it may not be accurate.
So, with the help of fellow PrintSmith user Mitch Eaton I changed our cutting charges over to cutting by lift back in 2001. I reviewed those prices this past month and I created an excel spreadsheet to help me figure those prices. You can download the excel file by clicking on the link below. In my next post I will explain how to enter the data from the excel sheet into PrintSmith.
