Onyx Graphics announces the release of Onyx Automation Libraries

Onyx Graphics announced the availability of new Onyx Automation Libraries to help print shops automate faster, improve print workflow efficiencies and reduce manual errors. These automation resource libraries contain examples of print and cut workflow configurations using Quick Sets and Adobe swatch libraries used for cutting. Current libraries can be used immediately after download, or as examples that can be edited or adjusted to directly impact the automation workflow needs of a print shop. Included are example Quick Sets for banners, wraps, grayscale, and tiling with a variety of finishing mark settings. Also provided are Adobe Illustrator color swatch libraries for common cutter devices such as Summa, Graphtec, and HP to further reduce set up time for print and cut workflows.

“As print shops pivot to provide new and innovative print applications and streamline print processes, it is clear automation is essential to achieve business goals,” says Matt Crawford, director of Product Marketing at Onyx Graphics. “Onyx Quick Sets provide a fast, easy way to automate. These Quick Set examples will help print shops focus on production instead of file preparation.”

Onyx Automation Libraries are exclusive to Onyx software and with their release, join the wider host of Onyx user resources developed for Onyx users around the globe. They include myOnyx, an online gateway containing smart business tools, product help, video tutorials, knowledge-based articles, and whitepapers to help keep Onyx users’ businesses running smoothly; Onyx TV, the official Onyx YouTube channel with quick tips, how-to videos and Onyx news; Onyx Training, web-based and hands-on Onyx certification workshops and free educational webinars to further customer knowledge on Onyx software; and Onyx Advantage, the company’s subscription-based support and maintenance program with easy access to online help and a dedicated technical support hotline service center.


Onyx Automation Libraries are available now to all Onyx users through the myOnyx portal. New users are encouraged to create an account on the company’s website at www.Onyxgfx.com/my-Onyx.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
