Fiery Launches Next-Generation SignLab Production-Print Software

Fiery, LLC, the largest independent provider of digital front ends (DFEs) and workflow software, announced the next generation of its sign-making and graphic production-printing software, SignLab 11.

This latest release is said to combine powerful vector and bitmap design and editing tools to simplify the production of banners, signs, decals, décor, and more. From one platform, Fiery says sign-printing businesses can design and produce vibrant and unique digitally printed, vinyl cut, and print/cut signs and graphics.

Unlike general design platforms, Fiery SignLab is purpose-built for the production environment, offering greater control of design elements and support for the most popular print, cut, and hybrid devices.

Fiery says the new vectorization controls, weed features, PDF cut tools, effects catalog, and fit-to-shape features are not typically found in general design applications and require third-party applications. Combining these tools with the widest direct support for output devices, SignLab is said to provide printers with a comprehensive and feature-rich production platform that includes integrated design, layout, and production workflow software for sign making, large format graphics, and print/cut applications.

John Henze, vice president of Sales and Marketing for Fiery, commented: “This new release of SignLab builds on Fiery’s legacy of innovation and automation to offer customers a modern, all-in-one platform that streamlines workflows, improves productivity, and accelerates profitability of their sign or wide format business. There is no need for multiple applications for production.”

With over 1,300 drivers available from the most popular print, cut and hybrid devices, SignLab is said to help shops of all sizes and production volumes maximize their production devices, automate common tasks and reduce rework.

New Features

New features and updates include:

 Vectorization Previewer – Eliminate guesswork using a new live preview of vectorization controls before applying them to an object. Saving time on design work by dialing in the perfect vectorization settings and applying it once.

 Fit To Shape – Design custom text shapes and layouts effortlessly by automatically adjusting text to fit any vector shape. Users can create visually stunning designs with ease, eliminating the need for complex manual adjustments.

 Effects Catalog – Save time designing by creating a library of commonly applied effects such as shadows, gradients, color combinations and apply saved effects to new objects in a single click.

 Power Weed Text Lines – Achieve faster and easier vinyl weeding with less margin for error using the new Power Weed Text Line feature that automatically positions weed cut lines among text and graphics for an efficient weeding process. This innovative feature saves manual labor and reduces waste by adding all weed cut lines to a design reducing guess work with optimal placement.

 PDF Cutter Support – Simplify the vinyl production process or other workflows that manage cut data separately using a built-in tool to automatically export cut data, including registration marks, to a separate PDF file.

 Theme Selector – Create a customized user experience with the choice of dark mode, light mode, or a user-selectable theme menu.
