NCD Introduces v. 5 of EasySign Software

Modular software for design, printing, and cutting

Big Picture

EasySIGN Version 5, from NCD Designs in The Netherlands, is a modular software that allows several different components to be joined together in various combinations to create a customized solution for design, large-format printing, color management, and routing and cutting.

Its signmaking (design and cutting) software is available in three levels: Starter, which upgrades graphic-design software such as CorelDraw or Adobe Illustrator with sign cutting and output abilities; Professional, which combines sign-design productivity and features such as a template wizard, scanning, shadows, and nesting; and Master, which includes all the tools in the Professional version, plus object manager, transparency, color vectorization, and more.

NCD's color-printing software comes in two levels, both featuring support for 6-color printers and variable-dot printing: Print Server-Pro, a RIP with a Jaws PostScript/PDF engine; and Print Server- Master, which adds an Internet-enabled logbook and simultaneous printing on multiple devices.

Also available is a Routing/Engraving module, which extends the software into solid signs. All modules can be used in combination with each other; users can add modules as needs expand.

EasySign 5 Starter: approximately $353; Professional: $1414; Master: $2,358; Print Server-Pro: $1651; Print Server-Master: $2830; and Routing/ Engraving: $1051.
