SAXOPRINT Presents the SAXOPRINT® Pro Design Adobe Add-on

Online printing company SAXOPRINT launches InDesign add-on to aid in the generation of artwork files for users of the digital printing service.

SAXOPRINT, one of the leading online printing companies in Europe, is now offering its customers a solution enabling them to create safe print-ready files in a familiar InDesign environment.

Based on the Adobe InDesign software application, SAXOPRINT is now offering its customers an add-on enabling simple and efficient generation of artwork files. Thanks to this extension for the desktop publishing application, ready-to-use templates can be generated directly in InDesign and used as a basis for individually designed print products.

Daniel Ackermann, managing director of SAXOPRINT: "With SAXOPRINT® pro design, we provide beginners and professional users, such as graphic designers and agencies, with an easy-to-use and flexible tool which enables them to work more efficiently. The development of SAXOPRINT® pro design reflects the innovative and customer oriented mindset of the entire SAXOPRINT team. We are already working on further features for SAXOPRINT® pro design to ensure that we can continue to offer our customers further added value in the future."

After installing the add-on, print templates for all SAXOPRINT products are available to the user. These are constantly synchronised with new offers from the online shop by means of automatic updates. Thanks to the intuitive user interface, both beginners and advanced graphic designers can ensure that key parameters such as size, bleed and colour mode are correct, and create files that are immediately ready for printing. The add-on also provides a direct link to SAXOPRINT´s service website and offers a comprehensive order overview.

Furthermore customers receive regular information about print-related issues via an integrated news box.

SAXOPRINT® pro design is available as a free download for Microsoft and Mac OS X from Adobe add-ons and is compatible with all versions from InDesign CS6 and later.
