New Blur & Bleed Functions

New blur & bleed functions remove the risk of white lines at cutting edges for accurate output. PrintStudio offers users a choice of three methods:

  1. Mask Method - mirror the edge of the image to create the bleed area.
  2. Duplicate Method - duplicate the edge of the image to create the bleed area.
  3. Mirror Method - when a bleed appears within the design file and is located outside the cut contour line, increase the bleed area outside of the cut contour line or to reduce the bleed area down to the cut contour line.

Add Custom Grommets

Print custom grommet marks for easy and convenient finishing. Choose from different shapes, adjust sizes and place grommets manually, or save time by using automated features to evenly space-out grommet marks in your artwork before producing.

Intuitive Nesting to Save Time, Space and Materials

A nesting tool automatically positions multiple print jobs on media in the most space-saving arrangement available and allows users to crop images to contour lines for the tightest placement possible. This enables long print runs of multiple images in the same production run and helps users minimize media waste and reduce material costs.

PrintStudio also offers manual nesting features for custom spacing and media planning.

RPS software step-and-repeat tool

Perfect Your Production with Step and Repeat

A step & repeat tool effectively prepares a single image for repetitive printing and cutting with automatic and manual spacing options. It also offers positive or negative bleed options for printing and cutting graphics with perfect registration. Additionally, users can clip to a contour path to minimize media use.

Tile and Tile Again

Created to output simple or detailed large format graphics, the tiling tool allows users to plan complex print jobs as well as offering easy tiling options with simple panel set-ups. Use the template-driven tiling feature to reduce design time, minimize media use and enable easy construction of large format graphics in post-production. Save template data so that new images can be dropped into the same template for re-printing.

Generate an Application Guide for Easy Installation

To complement the tiling function, PrintStudio features an application guide for the installation of large-scale tiled prints or vehicle wraps. Save time on complicated briefs and documentation by automatically generating an application guide PDF that provides accurate and easy-to-follow application instructions.
