With its release of its ArtiosCAD Display Store, Esko is significantly increasing productivity in the production of visual communications for retail and other environments where compelling signage and packaging can drive additional business. Esko added that anything that lends an unusual shape or structure to a large-format display or package creates more added-value for the retailer than flat signs and objects. This is one of the reasons why many advertising and large-format converters are expanding their portfolios, installing end-to-end solutions that will enable them to create these types of value-added applications in a streamlined fashion, from design right through to production. “Among other significant innovations that Esko presented at drupa earlier this year, ArtiosCAD Display Store provides a set of solutions that leaves nothing to be desired in terms of creative design, print preparation and finishing,” said Esko.
A new online design platform
www.ArtiosCAD.net is a new online platform that makes display and packaging design easier. Based on a comprehensive online library of tried-and-tested design templates and basic parameters, the online shop offers a wide selection of designs requiring only size adjustment to be ready for production. This takes both time and potential error out of the design process. ArtiosCAD users now have access to an affordable and continually growing source of new ideas for display designs that can be produced on Kongsberg converting equipment. Advertising technicians and display manufacturers can access a library of more than 325 re-sizeable, pre-tested display designs in the store. The designs are fast and easy to use, even for those with no experience in complex construction and 3D design. Each design package also contains an animated 3D-film that can be used as a customer presentation, uploaded on a website, or serve as an instruction manual for the finished product.
