SAi launches Flexi Complete

Updated version of signmaking software

SAi’s all-new Flexi Complete is the most comprehensive version yet of the company’s flagship signmaking software

SA International (SAi), a provider of software solutions for the signmaking, digital printing, textile and CNC machining industries, has announced the launch of Flexi Complete, a comprehensive and fully-updated version of its industry-acclaimed Flexi signmaking software.

As a result of an effort to rationalize and simplify the lineup of Flexi software, the new Flexi Complete — the only all-in-one design, print and cut software for sign and print providers — comprises a host of innovative new and convenient features, engineered specifically to address the day-to-day requirements of sign and display users.

Finishing Tools in Flexi Design

Based on customers’ feedback, the new features introduced in Flexi Complete mean that finishing tools are now seamlessly integrated into the design workflow, instead of being options to be applied in Production Manager. This improves efficiencies by enabling sign and large format display users to easily add grommets, fold lines, and bleeds to any project. By using the handy DesignCentral control panel, users can customize elements directly and achieve precise bleeds with multiple options – including corner choices, for flawless print-ready designs

Nesting Enhancements

Flexi Complete users benefit from smoother workflows with two new nesting options in Production Manager

Thanks to two new nesting options within Production Manager, users benefit from smoother workflows. These new options allow job images to be viewed during movement and layouts to be updated effortlessly with a simple checkbox. Additional features like manual overlapping, zoom options, and vertical alignment tools offer increased precision and efficiency for users, regardless of the sign or large format print application they’re working on.

Custom Weed Paths

Via an innovative and intuitive custom weed path tool, weed lines can be created with just one click, simply by drawing a path over any vector object. This new tool has been designed with time-saving in mind so that operators can efficiently automate processes while ensuring flawless results.

An improved user interface

Flexi Complete introduces a refreshed look to Flexi’s familiar intuitive interface, which, based on user preferences, now offers a set of options to personalize the theme and layout. For seasoned professionals or those just starting out in signmaking, DTF DTG, direct-to-vinyl, or other wide format printing applications, the optimized interface continues to promote a streamlined workflow, so users can navigate the software with ease, saving both time and effort.

Other useful advancements introduced to address common everyday pain points among sign and display users include Advanced Text Designer and Advanced ContourCut, the latter of which permits contour paths to be previewed by themselves, allowing users to catch any errors before the job is sent. Meanwhile, a new keyboard shortcut makes the irksome problem of masking/unmasking objects much easier. 

“As its name reflects, Flexi Complete delivers the entire package integrating design, RIP, and production capabilities into one solution,” explains Mikki Webb, president & CEO, SAi. 

“As we have always done, we’re constantly developing the software to ensure it meets the specific and demanding needs of our customers and in Flexi Complete, we are delivering a solution that genuinely shifts the dial in improving productivity and efficiencies across the full gamut of sign and large format print applications,” says Webb.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
