iQueue Imposition / Templating:

Now you can quickly impose digital files with single or multiple pages using iQueue Imposition. Set the desired media (plate) size, margins, number of columns and rows. You may also rotate templates, add crop marks, or use the nudge feature to move templates left/right, or up/down. iQueue operators can choose to use one of iQueue’s standard imposition templates, or create and save custom templates that can be used again, and again.
