SAi adds workflow tools to Flexi

SA International (SAi) has updated its Flexi sign design software. Flexi now gains a number of new finishing tools for adding grommets, folds and bleeds. Users can set the size, number of grommets and distances between them. For folds, users can input the size of the extra white space independently for all four sides; choose to print a frame around the fold, and specify a solid, dashed or dotted stitch line in any colour. The Bleed tool gives users several options to continue the image: using solid color, mirroring the image nearest the edge where the fold occurs, or repeating the last line of the image. The bleed width can be set in the same way as folds and the option to switch off printing in the corners is also available.

There’s also a new QR Code Creator, which automatically converts text into a QR code. This enables the creation of QR codes for Google Map locations. It integrates with Flexi’s Auto Serialization Tool for printing a sequence of interactive banners.

The new version also comes with new printer and cutter drivers.

All tools and features will be available at no extra cost to subscribers to SAi Flexi* from the end of October. The new tools, comprising Service Pack 6 for SAi Flexi 11, can be purchased and added to some product levels.

I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
