PrintFab is now Mountain Lion compatible… at last.
After several months waiting, i find the update… is a paid one.

Since i don't see any improvement except the ML compatibility (and some new drivers that obviously don't concern old clients), i don't see the point of paying for a piece of software i already own.
More, i read PF website: "for a small surcharge… use it on up to 3 computers. Small surcharge? More than double the price!
People can count, ya know…

So now i'm stuck with this choice: keep my PrintFab version that's not compatible with Mountain Lion, or paying a fee to be able to use it. I hate that!

Dear PrintFab people, i don't want you to get my money for nothing more than a compatibility issue.
We're in the iOS apps era, small fees and free updates.
Forget the 90's and expensive upgrades for nothing, long waits for compatibility…

I'll find another solution. Starting by saving a few…

I use an old HP 1220C (DinA3+) wich HP doesn`t support any more = No Driver for Snow-Leopard.
I tried GutenPrint Drivers and HP Froomatic RIP, but when I really had to print a photo, I restarted with Leopard!

With PrintFab I get excellent prints! I tried as an USB-Printer for printer-diagnostic and as a Network-printer, both was fine.
I just needed some Demo-Prints to purchase, even if it's expensive, buta new DinA3+ Printer is much more expensive

I'm using PrintFab almost a year now and I had no problem purchasing it. Results are very good on my two printers (Epson Pro 3800 and HP B9180) - both fineart and prepress prints look very good. In my opinion, the workflow may not be 100% intuitive, but once you have found where the relevant settings are, it's quite simple to use. Technical support was excellent - the manufacturer responds to queries quickly, all updates were free so far. Good to hear that now it also supports SnowLeopard.

This is a much needed print profiler utility that, unfortunately, does not work very well. Printers listed on the website as supported are not listed as menu choices where necessary. It is hard to navigate. The process for profiling and colour management should follow the workflow, but it does not. I suspect the underlying code and framework is decent, but the UI and visible process is lacking. Hopefully this will improve. As one other poster noticed, for a demo, it's impossible to actually buy this product!

These drivers seem to work very well. However I have not found a way to purchase the program as the site's purchase form does not work.
