SAi introduces the new Flexi21 signmaking software

SAi introduces the new Flexi21 signmaking software
 SAi has released Flexi 21, which it claims, is the most feature-rich version of its flagship signmaking software. The 64-bit RIP system is engineered to meet the demanding design to production challenges of the sign, display and large format printing sectors for both novice and more advanced users, while continuing to be highly productive.

SAi’s Flexi 21 design and RIP print software now supports multi-layer/white ink and varnish layered printing. With this versatile and powerful tool, Flexi can generate white ink or varnish on the fly or from the white layer in the predefined design, thus enabling users to control how the ink is printed in both the Flexi Design and Flexi RIP Production Manager functions. This ‘sandwich’ mode printing supports printing multiple layers, for example, a bottom layer of white, with colour in the middle and varnish on top and, with the ability to preview the white channel beforehand, users can save both RIP and print time, while also eliminating the possibility of wasted materials.

Flexi 21 also includes variable data printing. Users printing a set of graphics with mostly shared elements, can change certain text or images from graphic to graphic. The Flexi 21 variable data printing tool will enable them to design the print template with a sample file, select the element(s) that will change and then specify the data to be used.  This feature supports variable data images (including raster files, transparent pngs and most eps and PDFs), text, QR codes, data matrix, barcodes, and Braille.

Created as an all-in-one solution for design, print, print-and-cut and direct-to-vinyl production workflow, Flexi 21 also includes a host of advanced features, including Jig templates, which enables users to design and save templates that will precisely match the jig on the printer bed; enhanced printing while RIPing, which that eliminates the delay between ripping and printing; custom-cut line names and colours, which enables users to define their own, custom, cut line spot colours; Adobe Illustrator layer support, which facilitates the splitting of multi-layer Illustrator or PDF files into multiple jobs; custom inkset that enables inkset channels and profiles to be customised to different colour modes and G7 Certification, which recognises grey balance and generates linearisation that is compliant with G7 colour standards.
