At Print World Canada 2012, booth 122, Esko will demonstrate its extensive range of innovative solutions for packaging, sign & display, and commercial print providers. Held from November 17-19 at the Exhibition Place in downtown Toronto, Print World is one of the few printing trade shows to grow its presence in the industry. Over 8,000 graphic arts professionals/attendees visited the last show, Print World 2010.
Visitors will benefit from a visit to the Esko booth, where the company will display its end-to-end workflow solutions, showcasing its Suite 12 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, and WebCenter communication and collaboration tools. For sign and display shops, Esko will focus on i-cut Suite, a collection of pre-production solutions that streamline the workflow for digital printing and finishing throughout the entire production process.
“In recent years, Esko has made its presence known in Canada, taking an active role in trade shows and offering print providers throughout the country easy access to our products and expertise. We have a very powerful message – the ability to dramatically improve productivity and, to commercial printers who are interested, an easy path to progress into other areas of print,” explains Marc Raad, Esko Account Manager, Canada. “Esko has an extensive suite of new production and design tools – Suite 12 – that was launched earlier this year at drupa. We look forward to showing them to Print World attendees and answering all their questions on how to achieve the best possible results from their prepress production.”
The most recent set of Esko workflow solutions for prepress
During Print World, a series of new solutions launched earlier this year will be demonstrated. Visitors can work with a wide array of software solutions addressing artwork, management, design and prepress, color management, workflow automation and process integration. Esko Suite 12 adds value for the user by introducing new productivity and efficiency benefits. This is done by closely integrating all flagship tools and engines, by adding rich 3D functionality for a holistic experience, and by enabling mobile collaboration and web-based packaging management.
Featuring WebCenter 12, Studio 12 Automation Engine 12, Color Engine 12 and the version 12 editions of flagship editors ArtiosCAD, PackEdge, ArtPro and DeskPack, Suite 12 raises the bar for process integration from design to press, involving all players in the supply chain. It provides a complete answer to the challenges of a modern packaging preproduction workflow.
Why work in a flat world if packaging isn’t? Featured is Studio 12, a unique set of tools for 3D packaging design made specifically for packaging artwork professionals. Studio helps produce better artwork, by allowing users to virtually hold packs in their hands. Studio also lets companies create exciting 3D visuals to show to clients, ranging from PDF files with 3D content to movies, or virtual packshots. Meanwhile, Store Visualizer offers brand owners a unique, advance view of virtual packaging as it would look on a store’s shelves next to competitive products — before the real packaging is even produced.
