The Many Output Devices of CorelDRAW

May 15, 2008

As I talk with CorelDRAW users, I find that they know a lot about how they use CorelDRAW in their job but they don’t know the many ways it is used in the real world. The great news is that once you know CorelDRAW, you have the ability to pick up new ways to output your files with only a minimal learning curve.

One of our goals at the CorelDRAW Unleashed User Conference is to allow users attending the conference to see as many of the output devices as possible in action. We want users to see how they can grow their business by adding new methods of output. Behind the scenes I’ve been talking to vendors and lining up as many devices as possible. Today I’m ready to announce the first group of sponsors and the devices they offer.

Of course, I should mention that Corel is heavily involved in the conference. Two of the men behind the development and promotion of CorelDRAW will be there to interact with users and to deliver sessions during the conference. If you want a direct hotline to the developers, Tony and John will get your requests directly into the pipeline.

Brother will have their garment printer and embroidery machines available in the Output Center. Garment printers allow you to print directly from CorelDRAW to a wide variety of apparel and other fabrics. They’ll even be showing the printer in conjunction with a green screen so that a photo can be taken, superimposed on the background of your choice and output on a shirt in just a couple of minutes. I’ve seen it in action, and it is really cool! CorelDRAW is also the core graphics technology in Wilcom Decostudio e1. It allows you to take a CDR file and create a stitch file for output as embroidery. Brother’s embroidery machines can take those files and output them quite easily. Don’t believe it, come see it in action!

Digital Art Solutions has so much to offer that it will be hard to list it all here. They offer add-ons for CorelDRAW, production ready clip art as well as a wide variety of output devices. Not only do they have all these great products, their team knows and loves CorelDRAW. So if you are trying to output from CorelDRAW to darned near anything, they can help you with it. This can include garment printing, embroidery, applique, vinyl cutting, print and cut, wide format, screen printing, pad printing and much, much more!

Universal Laser is one of the top manufacturers of laser engravers. 90+% of their customers use CorelDRAW to output to their laser engraver! A laser engraver allows you to mark and cut wood, plastics, paper, glass, leather, stone, ceramic rubber and all kinds of other materials.

This gives you an idea of some of the devices you can work with in the Output Center of the CorelDRAW Unleashed User Conference. We expect to have even more devices and I’ll be back with further details as I have them.
