"Triple Triangle is a bridge that ties InDesign into our workflow in a complete way. This is obviously a huge time-saver. When the project manager gives us correct information, it remains correct three steps later and no one has to retype it."

Mechanical Cubed automates the creation and maintenance of crop marks, fold marks, and slugs. It also creates mechanicals from electronic job tickets, and populates digital asset management systems with workflow-related information for advertisements.
Maintain slugs that consistently display workflow status, approval, and preflighting information.
Add crop and fold marks that visually indicate key areas of the document. Resize the document easily.
Use excel, Filemaker, or PDF job order forms to eliminate manual data entry when setting up mechanicals.
All the information in your slug is exposed to common digital asset management systems using an Adobe standard called XMP
