Extends the Life of a Printer

By controlling how your printer uses inks you can remain productive even when the print head needs maintenance. All Black Ink™ delivers the flexibility and economy you want and need when running a production business.

An inkjet head will break down over time. When portions of the print head no longer clean properly or break down completely most people will discard the printer at that point, enduring added unnecessary business cost. You can use the All Black Ink™ feature to BYPASS those portions of the print head (nozzles) eliminating streaking and continue to produce clean sharp films.

How does sharing an ABI license between AccuRIP™ and Sep Studio™ 4 work?

Every software license from Freehand (AccuRIP™ Ruby and Spot Process™ Separation Studio™ 4) come with a full first year use of All Black Ink™. Once that expires purchase the next year ABI license then enter that code into any Advanced License software for another year of use. If your free ABI licenses expire at different times due to different activation dates you can enter the ABI code into the second software at anytime during the life of the license. The second software picks up and uses the remaining time in sync with the first software. When the ABI license expires you can activate and sync both software using a NEW ABI code. This way you will never be without the use of ABI and a license never goes to waste.

* * The exception to this are Premium Licensed software. These licenses operate 1 year with a “codeless” ABI license built in, there is nothing to share with or from a Premium software license. Sharing ABI codes apply only the perpetual Advanced licenses (AccuRIP™ Ruby and Spot Process™ Separation Studio™ 4) that accept external ABI license codes.
