Since acquiring Canadian developer CADlink in 2022, Fiery (formerly EFI Fiery), has been busy improving SignLab 10 and has now announced the release of SignLab 11 software for digitally printed and cut signs and graphics.

 FieryBetter known for its market-leading DFEs for cut-sheet digital presses, Fiery has weaved its magic into this latest sign industry workflow and it will be demonstrated at drupa 2024 in Dusseldorf.

SignLab 11 adds new real-time vectorization controls, custom text fit to shape features, effects catalog, and support for the widest range of printers and cutters, helping sign and large format printers streamline the design-to-production process.

Fiery, LLC, is the largest independent provider of digital front ends (DFEs) and workflow software and this latest release combines powerful vector and bitmap design and editing tools to simplify the production of banners, signs, decals,décor, and more. From one platform, sign businesses can design and produce vibrant and unique digitally printed, vinyl cut, and print/cut signs and graphics.

Unlike general design platforms, SignLab is purpose-built for the production environment, offering greater control of design elements and support for the most popular print, cut, and hybrid devices. The new vectorization controls, weed features, pdf cut tools, effects catalog, and fit to shape features are not typically found in general design applications and require third party applications.

Combining these tools with the widest direct support for output devices, SignLab provides printers with a comprehensive and feature-rich production platform that includes integrated design, layout, and production workflow software for sign making, large format graphics, and print/cut applications.

John Henze, Vice President, Sales and Marketing for Fiery says: “This new release of SignLab builds on Fiery’s legacy of innovation and automation to offer customers a modern, all-in-one platform that streamlines workflows, improves productivity, and accelerates profitability of their sign or wide format business. With Fiery SignLab, customers can easily design and  produce from one platform. There is no need for multiple applications for production.”SignLab 2

Customers seem to agree, with Matt Lamborn, owner of Golden Opportunity Signs in Polk, Ohio, USA saying: "I've relied on SignLab exclusively for over 20 years, and Fiery's continuous enhancements to this already remarkable program never fail to impress. With over 35 years in the sign making business, SignLab remains invaluable for both vinyl work and hand lettering from cutting vinyl to creating patterns. The tools within SignLab significantly boosted my design capacity and ability to easily create intricate designs with wonderful effects and eye appeal. I highly recommend SignLab 11 for the seasoned sign veteran as well as for beginners wanting to jump into the world of creating incredible signage!"

With over 1300 drivers available from the most popular print, cut and hybrid devices, SignLab 11 helps shops of all sizes and production volumes maximize their production devices, automate common tasks and reduce rework.
