Adstream and Adsend give you the ability to create advertisements that are pre and post flight-checked to ensure they pass through extensive PostScript checks.
When the file passes through the checks and is correct to Time Out specs, it is released and Time Out receives the file via Adstream or Adsend VPN.
With these checks, you are assured that any file sent this way will meet the full mechanical specifications of Time Out before the file leaves your production department.
If you are interested in either Adstream or Adsend please see www.adstream.com or www.adsend.com
