At Graphics Canada 2011, booth #3906, EskoArtwork will demonstrate its range of solutions for packaging, sign & display, and commercial print providers.
Visitors to the show will benefit from a visit to the EskoArtwork booth, where the company will display its end-to-end workflow solutions, showcasing its Suite 10 portfolio of print and packaging pre-production software, featuring Studio, a unique set of tools for 3D packaging design made specifically for packaging artwork professionals. For sign and display shops, EskoArtwork will highlight i-cut Suite, a collection of pre-production solutions that streamline the workflow for digital printing and finishing throughout the entire production process.
Graphics Canada, held November 10-12, 2011 at the Toronto International Center, is Canada's largest and longest running showcase for the graphic arts and printing industry, ranked 13th largest trade show of any kind in Canada. With 250 exhibitors representing over 500 companies and held in 4 exhibit halls at the Toronto International Centre, the event provides an unique opportunity to inspire, influence, entice and persuade the largest gathering of graphic arts and print buyers in Canada -- more than 12,000.
"This is the first time that EskoArtwork has exhibited at Graphics Canada with its own booth. Over the past couple of years, EskoArtwork has made a specific effort to make its presence known in Canada, offering print providers throughout the country easy access to our products and expertise," explains Marc Raad, EskoArtwork Account Manager, Canada. "We look forward to showing visitors to Graphics Canada our extensive range of software solutions and answering all their questions on how to achieve the best possible results from their prepress production."
Suite 10: Complete prepress solution
Automation is becoming an extremely important determinant of print provider profitability. Automation could be adding simple trapping programs to the prepress department, introducing advanced, 3D design software, or building full-fledged, sophisticated prepress production automation.
EskoArtwork's Suite 10 is a software solution for packaging prepress, 3D structural design and quality assurance, collaboration and automation, and color management. Visitors can follow demonstrations of Automation Engine 10 and editor applications: ArtPro 10, PackEdge 10, DeskPack 10, ArtiosCAD 10 and Studio 10. Automation Engine 10 adds capabilities to the automation of repetitive tasks and takes more human interaction out of prepress production.
EskoArtwork Studio: creating artwork in 3D
Rather than working on 2D flats, designers can create projects in 3D -- designing with finished lines, adding graphics, and wrapping them around to see how they fit. Graphics can be designed on 3D materials using EskoArtwork Studio and Visualizer, plug-ins for Adobe ® Illustrator ® that put interactive 3D display creation in the hands of the designer, letting them see their artwork applied instantly on the screen. Studio also allows designers to create exciting 3D visuals to show to their clients, ranging from PDF files with 3D content, to movies, or virtual pack shots. Visualizer adds the finishing touch, showing a wide range of substrates, printing and finishing effects in real-time.
One of Studio's featured options is EskoArtwork's Studio Toolkit for Shrink Sleeves, the recipient of a 2011 Printing Industries of America InterTech(TM) Technology Award. Studio Toolkit for Shrink Sleeves creates artwork for shrink sleeves (labels placed around a package or packages and shrunk around them during production).
