Corel Takes New Direction for Embroidery

January 18, 2008

Corel has been marketing the DRAWings package for a few years now. It combined CorelDRAW with embroidery software from Wings Systems. That era has ended and a new one has begun.

Today Corel announced DecoStudio, a blending of CorelDRAW and embroidery technology from Wilcom. Not only does DecoStudio handle embroidery, it also helps with garment printing, applique, screen printing, vinyl signage and more.

At the heart of the system is CorelDRAW X3 for creation of graphics. Wilcom DecoStudio is then included and I would guess that it does all the work of prepping the graphic for output in each of the mediums. I’ve yet to get a look at the software, so I can’t be much more descriptive at this point.

The price is $1999 and that might seem steep to many users of CorelDRAW. But for those working in the industries targeted, it is a bargain price. If you already own Corel DRAWings, you can upgrade for $999. The software is targeted to ship in March.

I hope to have more information on this important announcement soon and will post more about DecoStudio as I learn more.

    OMIGOSH! I have used Drawings for 3 years and DecoStudio appears to solve ALL of the short-comings of Drawings not the least of which is coming with 30+ predigitized fonts. Not only that you are able to convert Open fonts and TrueType fonts to true digitized fonts. Its type algorithm looks to be FAR, FAR superior to Wings. Wilcom is one of if not the TOP digitizing software made. I can’t wait to get my copy!!
