Not all users are aware of the amazing fashion designs that can be created in CorelDRAW. A really cool product for creating multidecorations is Wilcom DecoStudio e1.5 and now is a great time to give it a look if you haven’t already. Why is it a great time? Because Corel is throwing in the DecoStudio PowerPack if you purchase before December 31, 2009!
First, let’s go over what you get with Wilcom DecoStudio. I see it as two major components with the first one being CorelDRAW X4. CorelDRAW can be used to design artwork that will be digitized and/or artwork that will be printed on a garment. If you already know how to use CorelDRAW, you won’t find that it works any different inside of the DecoStudio package. The other part is Wilcom’s contribution and that is the embroidery digitizing software. You can design directly in DecoStudio or you can have your CorelDRAW artwork digitized automatically. Of course you can edit the digitized version after the conversion. When the design is all ready, it can be saved as a stitch file compatible with popular embroidery machines. If you want to see what it can do, visit the DecoStudio page for a video tutorial and more.
For a limited time, Corel is including the DecoStudio Power Pack (a $995 value) for free. So what exactly do you get? I’ve pasted the information below.
As a helpful addition to Wilcom DecoStudio e1.5, the DecoStudio PowerPack is for those who want to add a bit more power and control. It is packed full of great tools! DecoStudio PowerPack includes:
- Power Lettering Tools
- Team Names
- Letter Spacing
- Stitch Method control
- Vertical Baseline
- New! Knife tool – cut whole shapes into separate objects, automatically re-sequencing the objects to avoid trims and cuts
- Bonus! 6 month subscription to Wilcom ConceptShare®
So if you have been thinking about digitizing artwork with CorelDRAW or switching from another flavor of embroidery software to DecoStudio, there couldn’t be a better time to do it. You might even find that you can get a discount if you are trading in other embroidery software. Get all the details of Corel’s special sale!
