This Adobe Illustrator plug-in helps print providers, sign makers and designers quickly and easily prepare files for wide format print production. Key Features With the unique Sign&Banner Plug-in tool, anyone designing or producing signs and banners can dramatically reduce their preparation time and reduce mistakes in finishing. With the plug-in, shops can prepare all aspects of a sign or banner - including grommet marks, bleeds and folds - right in Adobe Illustrator software in less than a few minutes. Grommets: manually measuring grommets for a banner requires additional time and effort that can lead to higher production cost per banner. Some shops use RIP software to add grommet marks, but involving printer operators in banner setup slows production time. The Sign&Banner Plug-in enables placement of grommet data at the design stage and from within Adobe Illustrator software, saving production time and potentially costly job re-runs. Print bleeds: adding print bleed data (overprinting the media area) manually for banners is time-consuming. Complicated bleeds - such as duplicate or mirror bleeds - can take time to add to an image, particularly after the design is finished. With the Sign&Banner Plug-in, designers and print providers can prepare print bleeds automatically and overcome Illustrator's bleed limitations. This plug-in also offers the ability to "design-to-scale" so jobs are print-ready at the correct size.
