WHAT IS A RIP?
If you just want to send data to your printer, you can use the driver that came with it. But, if you want to get the quality out of the printer you were hoping for when you bought it, you need RIP software. A RIP will quickly pay for itself in time and media savings.
Why do I need a RIP?
Some large format printers provide some sort of printer driver or rudimentary onboard RIP to convert image file data into a form that your printer can understand. However, most users need more than this in order to achieve anything close to optimal results from their printer. The advantages of a professional RIP fall into two categories: Color and Workflow.
