Further Image Processing Option Available are detailed below

  • TIFF CMYK Conversion
  • Layered PDF with Background Colour
  • Auto Digitisation & Vectorisation

Please Note – You can set the minimum image resolution you accept for each image area and Vector Images uploaded (SVG & EPS) are preserved as Vector Images. All artwork is created by default at 300 dpi

.

Print Layouts

Can be set on individual products where you have either multiple print areas or specific crop or positioning requirements on an individual sheet – you can position each area and even upload a background

They are mainly used for products like

  • Greetings Cards
  • Calendars
  • Phone Skins

Example Layout

Layout

When you want to add multiple products to a template from different orders please see section below on Batch Templates – Print Layouts are designed for a single product at a time

If you want to add a background to a print layout and do not want to use a batch template then you can add an extra print/surface area to the product  and disable it from the user interface but use it in the artwork

.

Production Batch Templates

Artwork from separate orders can automatically be put into batch templates and queued ready for production based on the rules you set up. This can either be used for grouping products or allocating jobs to different machines – an on screen filter can then be applied to select which jobs are visible

Batch

  • By default screen only displays orders that have not been downloaded – so orders not already being produced or outstanding orders
  • If you want to re-print an old template you can put a tick in the “include download” box to view all previous production templates
  • To download a template either click the PDF icon next to the batch , use the “=” key to download a few templates or select the download all option in the drop down menu
  • Please note if you have a lot of orders it is not recommended to select the “Download All” option as dependant on the internet connection and size of artwork each templates could take several minutes to download
  • Once downloaded the production template will disappear from your list unless the “include downloaded” box is ticked
  • The downloaded template should now be printed onto the film ready for production
  • Each template can feature individual or a single barcode for managing workflow
