EZ CUSTOMIZED VARIABLE DATA AND IMAGES

 

Using Graphtec Pro Studio Plus allows you to easily create coded patterns, such as a bar-code, QR code, or data matrix code, and printing objects having variable data.

Now brands are taking personalization a big step forward into mass customization.  They are discovering that they can elevate customer loyalty and engagement - and use their customer base as an engine of advocacy to potential buyers.  Product customization helps brands boost sales on their own websites or gain share on a retailer’s site.

PIXELATE IMAGE TO SHARP IMAGE

Graphtec Pro Studio Plus has smart tool to detect and able to process the bitmap image by applying a filter for removing dot noise or controlling sharpness.

REDUCE NOISE - erasing the dot noise such as in scanned images.

BLUR - blurring the image by taking the average of the pixels around the pixel.

SHARPEN - making the sharpen image by increase the contrast between pixels.

There is also available filters such as the level to change the amount of color to use.  Color balance to increase or decrease specific color.  Brightness / Contrast to adjust brightness, saturation, and contrast.

1-CLICK VECTOR PATH

There is more a special tracing function to vectoring the bitmap image in the Graphtec Pro Studio Plus.

COLOR TRACING - Graphtec Pro Studio Plus generates vector data for each color used from color bitmap images.  It is able to create cut data for each color of the bitmap image, and then different cutting conditions can be assigned for each color.

  3. Fixed the problem that cutting may not be performed when Panel to border is set.

  4. Improved the Smart nest that can hold the split position.

Ver.1.50

Update: June 2, 2017

  1. Fixed the problem that the arrangement position of the bar code may shift when creating a register mark of type 2 and length of register mark to be shorter than 20 mm.

  2. Fixed the problem that the disabling the color or layer on settings of Option tab may not be reflected in the preview. (Cutting condition setting for each layer is supported only by Graphtec Pro Studio Plus.)
