Personalized bill printing digital process

With the continuous promotion of digital printing technology in China and the gradual development of scale, ticket printing companies have increasingly focused on personalized billing and invoice business in recent years. Digital printing is the focus of investment introduction when introducing equipment. From pre-press digital proofing to CTP plate making, from variable data printing equipment to digital workflows, ERP management software, all this has transformed printing from original manual labor to digital and networked modern production.

Zhuhai Hongshan Ticket Printing Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Hongshan ticket), as a printing factory for local taxation tickets in Guangdong Province, has a successful experience in the printing of personalized direct mail bills in the face of the province’s business volume.

In March 2005, the Hongshan ticket has successfully completed the printing and direct mail service of the annual personal tax payment certificate in some areas of Guangdong Province. The business requirement is to print 2 million personal income tax payments within a short period of time. Proof of the bill, and delivery. Printing requirements are: positive and negative four-color + positive and negative variable data printing. These are one-time online operations, and the user information is highly confidential.
Another very typical example is: The Zhuhai Haiquan Bay project invested by the Hong Kong China Travel Group, which has nearly 4 billion, was officially put into operation in 2006. The printing of the tickets for the Haiquan Bay scenic spot was selected by the Hongshan ticket. Some attractions tickets use a folded type of continuous ticket and print bar code form, in addition to each invoice has a different and continuous invoice number, there is a random data bar code, the only correspondence between the two. When tourists enter the scenic spot, the staff only needs to read the ticket with a code reader and perform one-to-one verification with the data in the database. The counterfeiter can't forge it at all without knowing the database. With these complicated printing processes, we believe that digital anti-counterfeiting is the safest and most reliable, while the cost is relatively low.

Take Haiquan Bay tickets as an example below to introduce the digitized workflow of personalized bill printing.
The first is that after receiving the order, we carefully analyzed the product requirements put forward by the customer: This kind of ticket is a computer ticket, so it uses a folding continuous packaging method, with four colors in front and two colors in reverse, and the need to print on the reverse side. Barcode and invoice number, invoice number are usually printed with anti-counterfeiting ink and special numbering machine. In order to make the anti-counterfeiting effect of the invoice better, we propose to match the invoice number with the random bar code on the basis of the customer's request. Up, then the uniqueness of the invoice can not only be authenticated by a random bar code, but also by checking the corresponding invoice number, increasing the difficulty of fraud. We promise to provide the database file while providing the invoice. This service not only saves the customer the cost of finding a software company to make a database, but also brings convenience to the printing factory. We can generate a database based on different typos and make-up plans to improve the production efficiency.
In order to allow customers to see the effect of the product in the shortest possible time, we use Epson Stylus Pro 9600 to achieve digital proofing, adjust the ICC curve before digital proofing, and the sample draft after color management is closer to the printing effect of our narrow web machine. After the client finalizes the sample, production can be arranged.
The relevant requirements of the customer are entered into the ERP order system. At the same time, the salesman will check whether there is such material stored in the warehouse through the ERP system, and roughly estimate whether the inventory quantity meets the demand. If the warehouse confirms that there is no such material, timely Contact the purchasing department to order. After these tasks are completed, the order will be recycled to the process and planning group of the production department.

After receiving the order, the Process and Planning Group will consider the production conditions of the workshop equipment according to the color number on the sample draft and the need for the printing of variable data. This is a double-sided continuous folding invoice, which must be considered on the device: the front four colors + the reverse one color + the reverse side printing variable information. According to the production volume of business, arranging Martini six-color rotary printing machine, this production line in addition to six sets of ordinary offset printing units, there are two sets of silk screen printing units and two sets of multi-function units, as long as the installation of the appropriate size of the number of playing cards Each group of offset printing presses has the function of numbering; at the same time, there is a group of Kodak printing stations (as shown in Figure 1). In the case that printing equipment is not commonly used at ordinary times, the nozzles can be moved elsewhere. Such short-delivery ticket business should arrange maximum size printing as far as the equipment allows, and at the same time, make printing according to the number of prints, and the maximum print width of the Martini concept-NT printer is At 520mm, Kodak print equipment can print up to 18 inches, and all fixed and variable information can be printed online at once. This kind of equipment is undoubtedly the most suitable for these large-volume products with relatively tight delivery time. After selecting the appropriate typesetting method and production process flow, the production and construction list will be generated in the ERP system. During the subsequent entire production process, the production and construction list will run through every link.

The production and construction slips were delivered to pre-printing at the earliest, and the new work order can also be browsed in the ERP system before printing. Prepress is the first link of printing. It is necessary to put the manuscript according to the imposition requirements of the work order. Usually this operation is implemented in the Preps imposition software. The imposition of the invoice is simpler than that of the books and periodicals. Usually head-to-toe imposition is fine, but it needs to add some special marks, such as punching holes for positioning, cutting lines and register lines. After completing these tasks, you will make a big blue print, which is very important at the ticket factory. Before the printing plate is ready, the printing press can adjust the loading number according to the blue print, saving a lot of preparation time. After the plate is sent to the printing press, it can usually be produced quickly. In the same time as the fixed text and information layout, the variable data typesetting is carried out at the same time. The company R&D center staff, under the cooperation of the process personnel, generates the database files of the customer requirements. After the customer passes the test, the database can be processed. Typography and layout. Data processing flow chart shown in Figure 2.

The first step is Datainput, which is data import. Usually the data is separated by commas or expressed in fixed-length form. After importing data from the database, you can define the name for each field to facilitate the import of the correct fields in the layout.

The second step is the process of data conversion. Fields that perform special operations need to be modified in order to complete subsequent operations or outputs. GMC's C++-based Print-net software defaults to importing data fields that are of a string type. These fields are converted to floating-point or date-type data according to different needs. For example, the usual invoice number is 8-bit Gothic Arabic numerals, and the data conversion module can complete these basic conversions.

The next step is to typeset the data. In order to more accurately correspond to fixed picture and text information, a low-resolution, fixed-text picture insert data layout page is usually exported, and then the data fields are positioned, so that the data typesetting becomes very convenient. Add a barcode to the page and associate it with the variable data in the database so that each invoice has a one-to-one invoice number and a random barcode.
The imposition of variable data can be arranged in multiple small versions during page layout, or can be implemented by using a module N-Upper in the software. The function of this module is equivalent to the Preps software used in the imposition of fixed text information. Multi-row, multi-column imposition schemes can be easily implemented here. If the layout is completed when the page layout, the data file is more complex, special circumstances of the imposition needs to use this method.

The third step is Output, which is the output. This is the last process of data processing. The layout of the page is a single small version of the layout, the output size is the size of each large page, from another perspective is every One print head prints one print area. After the preview inspection data is correct, Kodak print ijp format file can be generated, and Ijpds Proofer can preview the soft proofing effect after RIP. In order to check whether the database file we made is correct, we also need to print the first few data blue prints of the layout. At this time, we can use ordinary A4 paper to print. Experience has shown that this process of variable data blue print inspection is very important to avoid data errors and save expensive on-machine testing costs. If one side needs two nozzles to work at the same time, the two nozzles print different contents, and the blue sample will also tell the printer staff where the nozzles are placed. Figure 3 shows the preview of the variable data graphic layout.

After the data check is correct, the final print file can be transmitted to the printer through the network. At this time, the preparation of the printing press is basically ready. After the normal production, all the printing processes are on-line at one go: one-color printing on the back, four-color printing on the front, and printing on the back with variable data, and then online collection. In the case of high-speed operation, the product is immediately placed in the box after printing, and the customer information is kept at a very high density. Because the product is folded and continuous, there is no post-print loss. If the printing of fixed graphics and variable data is done like a personal income tax bill, post-press processing is also required, so every product that is lost after printing must be prepared properly. Records, and feedback to data processing personnel in a timely manner. When the loss is large, the data needs to be reprocessed according to the above data processing flow and printed on the machine; if the number is small, ordinary printing equipment can be used for printing. Products with variable information on the front and back side must ensure one-to-one correspondence between front and back information when making up the print.

From the production management system to the digital prepress and digital printing, the Hongshan ticket equipment has accumulated the most advanced technology in the printing field. In order to achieve the goal of first-class equipment, advanced technology, and advanced management, Hongshan ticket not only introduces advanced equipment, but also gives priority to the training of professional and technical personnel.

Because these personalized products were completed on time, in good quality, and in limited quantities, the Hongshan ticket was highly praised by customers in this field. As the leader of the national ticketing industry, the Hongshan ticket will continue to expand the application of digital printing to all provincial tickets. field. We firmly believe that: the development trend of the printing of bills will inevitably change from the printing materials anti-counterfeiting to the database information security, then the spring of digital printing will first come in the field of tickets!
