We first purchased ONYX in the 1980s because they were the first RIP to really be known for wide-format print with a product that would suit our needs. Back then, ink restriction capability was almost trial and error except with ONYX, so it helped us produce amazing and profitable prints while also saving ink and time.
Since then, like everyone, the industry has come a long way; we run multiple machines including Canon, Océ, HP-latex, Roland, in combination with our finishing equipment from Zünd and Trotec (Laser), so the fact that ONYX can support all our devices makes our printer purchase decisions much easier.
We now use ONYX Thrive with network licensing and expert color profiling which allows us to meet and exceed customer expectations.
The fact that Onyx is extremely fast and easy to use are important factors too, something we didn’t find with any alternative choices. As a mid-size business in a dynamic and growing German market Onyx Graphics has really helped us serve our wide corporate customer base.
With the introduction of ONYX Thrive we are able to produce to tight deadlines meaning our customers keep coming back time after time. Due to the quality and speed across all our devices we are able to meet all of their demands. We look forward to many more years with ONYX Site Solutions software.

“We switched to ONYX Thrive over a year ago now and with their latest version we have an immediate and noticeable growth in our print productivity.
Racing is a fast-paced industry and we do everything in-house including graphic design and large scale printing. It’s important to us to have a solution that supports all our file formats and sizes that allows for fast processing and printing with accurate color.
ONYX was recommended to us by HP, our printer manufacturer as the only solution for excellent and consistent color that is the same today as it will be in 5 years from now, which is something we struggled with previously prior to using ONYX. (more…)
Watch how Andretti Autosport uses ONYX Thrive software as their go-to solution to tackle their wide-format and grand-format business needs. “ONYX has always been the industry standard….” – Jeff Childers, Andretti Autosport.
We are a growing organization with new buildings, many printers including Efi, HP Latex, Dilli, Flora, Mutoh and Mimaki as well as a number of computer systems to run everything. As we grew, we needed a solution that could run our entire site, across two buildings from one central location. Not only that, but we needed a solution that could handle so many different printers using different inks and medias so that color would be consistent for our customers across devices. ONYX Thrive was the only provider who could satisfy our business needs which helped us become more effective, efficient and productive. Having one solution for our entire site also provided benefits we didn’t even consider at first! With ONYX Thrive, we can manage all our production from one location, we save money by doing more in less time, and don’t need to waste time on learning how to use less effective RIPs out of the box. We enjoy how simple it is to be up and running, with a complete print workflow that handles everything in our print shops. We’re also glad to have local support.
ONYX, Particularly ONYX Thrive, has had a large impact on our business. With as much equipment as we have running at any one time, Thrive has been instrumental in keeping us fast, reliable and consistent.
We first bought ONYX PosterShop in 2005 and upgraded to ONYX Thrive once we grew and needed network licensing and connectivity between devices, which was especially helpful in keeping operational with any printer downtime. We had looked at Caldera before but they require a new operating system using Linux inside Mac and it’s a costly new hardware. ONYX runs on our systems and doesn’t require us to buy new hardware. I’m not sure people know just how much money that saves! (more…)
