DecoStudio and EmbroideryStudio e2 Coming Soon
Newest Release Helps Decorators Stay CompetitiveDecorators have been looking for ways to stay competitive with shorter runs and customer demands for more fashion-forward, multi-decorated designs. In 2007, Wilcom and Corel came together to make this possible, and now the latest editions of DecoStudio and EmbroideryStudio e2 make it even easier, more efficient and production friendly. Also, with the new features and creative power included in CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite X5 like major enhancements to asset management, color management, web graphics, a wide variety of learning resources and more content than ever before, decorators will have all tools needed to meet the evolving requirements of the multi decoration and embroidery industry.
"Since the beginning of our partnership, it's clear that Corel and Wilcom make a powerful team. With the initial release of Wilcom DecoStudio, we combined the creative capabilities of CorelDRAW and the specialized strengths of Wilcom to offer a flexible solution that addresses the evolving needs of the embroidery market as well as the broader multi-decoration industry," said Gérard Métrailler, Senior Director of Product Management, Graphics at Corel Corporation.
"We are delighted to continue our work together with the launch of the e2 family of products. This intuitive and time-saving solution redefines what's possible in the multi-decoration industry, combining our flagship graphics offering, CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5, with the power and quality you
know and love from Wilcom DecoStudio and EmbroideryStudio," added Métrailler.
Wilcom Expands Possibilities by Adding New Effects, Improved Production and Usability EnhancementsWith a commitment to examining business processes, trends and customer feedback, this new product suite ensures everything is at your finger tips, visualised, optimised and ready for production.
Bling!DecoStudio and EmbroideryStudio e2 allows businesses to take advantage of the rhinestone craze and create dazzling rhinestone fill shapes, runs and patterns with ease. Built-in intelligence removes overlaps, converts vector shapes to rhinestone designs and works out how many rhinestones are needed for each color! Production files can be exported for rhinestone machines or cutters.
Improved Visualisation and ProductionA collection of garment templates are now included to visualise the design as a finished product. It also translates into professional approval PDFs to improve order and production processes. Another tool customers have requested is the Hoop it! tool which visualises the design within the most appropriate embroidery machine hoop, streamlining the embroidery production process.
Productivity ImprovementsBased on customer feedback, the latest editions of DecoStudio and EmbroideryStudio load faster and offer a host of time-savers such as Mouse-Wheel Scroll/Zoom, measurement unit control and Apply Closest join which reduces trims on the embroidery machine.
Creative Power of CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite X5The suite's core applications include CorelDRAW® X5 for vector-illustration and page-layout; Corel® PHOTO-PAINTTM for professional image-editing; Corel® PowerTRACE® for converting bitmaps into editable vector graphics, and Corel® CAPTURETM for screen capture. New to the suite is Corel® CONNECTTM, a full-screen browser that lets users search the suite's digital content, their computer or local network to quickly find the perfect complement for a design.
And for even more options, EmbroideryStudio e2 also offers:
Multi-decoration ExportIt's one thing to create multi-decoration designs on screen, but the production of all the separate elements can be quite tricky. With EmbroideryStudio e2 users can now export all the elements in one go - resulting in separate and appropriate production files for print, bling, embroidery or appliqué.
Team Sports FeaturesEmbroideryStudio e2 makes it easier to cater to decorated team uniforms and maximise the profits of this very lucrative market. Users can now select from a library of multi-line team name templates to make personalisation a breeze. With a host of new improvements including Auto Letter spacing to handle short and long names, businesses will certainly have the tools to serve this market well.
New Artistic Stitch EffectsThe new freehand embroidery tool allows users to take advantage of their drawing tablets for even more creativity. Additional new stitch effects also include Cross Stitch Fill, Carving Stamp and Stipple Fill to make a design stand out from the crowd.
Dazzling SequinsSequins are a major fashion item and EmbroideryStudio e2 provides the tools to master this medium by creating sequin-filled shapes, borders and multi-sequin patterns. Advanced editing tools provides the level of precision required for dazzling results.
Martin Kristiaman, CEO at Wilcom International said "The new e2 release is made possible through on-going collaboration, feedback, and support from our loyal user community. Together with Corel we are very pleased with the result and look forward to seeing the apparel industry's creative use of this technology."
