Free Plug-in Makes It Easy To Create Graphics That Look Like Real Embroidery
April 20, 2006 – Ottawa, ON
Corel Corporation today introduced a new plug-in for CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite that enables designers to easily convert any image or vector graphic to a bitmap that has the look of embroidered stitches. Available as a free download from the Corel Web site, the DRAWings® Embroidery Effect can be used with both CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 12 and X3.
Quick and easy-to-use, the DRAWings Embroidery Effect instantly converts any graphic into an image that looks like it has been created with real stitches. Built by DRAWstitch, one of the industry’s leading embroidery technology companies, the plug-in offers new creative options for designers who are looking for a distinctive style that will help them stand out from the crowd.
"This new effect is ideal for anyone who wants to create the unique and eye-catching look of embroidery, without having to sew a single stitch. Whether you are a screen printer who is looking to create amazing new t-shirt artwork, a direct to garment printer who wants to offer stunning new fashion designs, or a sign maker who wants to add another creative option to your portfolio, this free plug-in offers you creative possibilities that were virtually impossible to achieve before," said Nick Davies, Corel’s General Manager Graphics.
The DRAWings Embroidery Effect plug-in enables customers to create raster images with the look of embroidery that can be printed out for a variety of projects including garments, promotional items, marketing materials, or signs. For customers looking for a complete design-to-stitch embroidery solution, Corel also offers the new Corel DRAWings X3, a unique vector-based embroidery software that combines the award-winning power and simplicity of CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite X3 with the industry-renowned embroidery expertise of DRAWstitch. Corel DRAWings X3 gives embroiderers an unprecedented level of ease-of-use, while offering the digitizing control and flexibility professional users need over their custom designs and final stitched results.
