Film printing… from art file to inkjet with ease and accuracy

Reimagined and redesigned. Print directly from Sep Studio™ NXT, Adobe™, Corel™ or any of your favorite graphics programs. Postscript™ is the language of graphics. Raster inkjet printers are non-postscript devices. AccuRIP™ Emerald is the necessary language translator that makes film positive printing possible and controllable. Every screen printer with a compatible Epson or Canon inkjet printer needs AccuRIP™ Emerald RIP software.

Welcome to AccuRIP™ Emerald the gem of RIP software.

AccuRIP Emerald screen printing software shines with a pixel perfect Print Proof preview. Never again worry or wonder what is coming out of your printer. With Print Proof you’ll know before you click the print button. See every film “exactly” as it will print. Print Proof displays a high resolution proof exactly as it will be printed or saved to a file.

See every crisp halftone, deep dense solid area and sharp edge spot color before printing. Not a small misleading FPO (for position only) preview, this is the print data displayed in full print quality!

All Black Ink™

In 2007 Freehand introduced to the screen print industry All Black Ink printing to better control ink cartridge-based printers. Matched with Freehand’s Dmax™ black dye ink screen printers gained economic and technical advantages.

In 2021 Freehand again leads the field in taking advantage of the new style chip and cartridge-less printers known as Eco and Mega, by Epson and Canon. Fill a larger ink tank with Dmax black dye. Some printer models can hold hundreds of milliliters of ink!

Reimagined and redesigned, users will no longer struggle with cartridge microchips that fail, chip resetters, or slowdowns associated with filling multiple cartridges at random times. Large capacity ink tanks deliver a better experience.

Our most eco-friendly solution, Freehand again reduced the plastic, microchip, and battery footprint. Supporting tank style printers is another giant step toward a greener solution.

Both packages include Freehand’s ABI (All Black Ink feature) at no additional cost. Check the Certified Printer list for printer models that take advantage of this great feature.

Downtime is Gone Forever!

Let’s face it, computer hardware failure is a big problem and it seems to happen at the worst time. Getting your screen printing software reinstalled and activated should not add downtime to an already stressful situation. Freehand makes it easy.

With iLok online cloud control manager you can activate/deactivate/move a software license at anytime. No more need to submit support tickets or install trials. You are in total control 24/7.

Each software license allows a cloud and ilok USB dongle activation on separate computers. That’s 2 simultaneous activations to prevent downtime while ensuring and expanding production.

iLok® dongles are low cost and readily available online from sources like Amazon.
