I do prepress work for a label manufacturer/printer, and all of our trapping is currently done manually. The art files we work with continue to grow in their complexity, and doing all the trapping manually can sometimes be quite difficult and incredibly time consuming.
I know that Illustrator has a built-in trapping option, but it doesn't allow for a whole lot of control. I've played around with a demo of PowerTrapper (from Esko), but it's fairly pricy, and I haven't been able to get my boss to bite yet. I'm wondering if anyone out there has any recommendations on plugins that handle trapping.
