Sawgrass Launches All-In-One Print Management Solution


Sawgrass’ New Virtuoso Print Manager is the first universal print software for all Virtuoso HD Product Decorating Systems. Suitable for SG400, SG800 and VJ 628 printers, Virtuoso Print Manager is an all-in-one print management solution that works with both desktop design programmes, such as CorelDRAW and Adobe Creative Cloud, and CreativeStudio. It is also the first print manager to deliver RIP-like applications using both Windows and Mac operating systems for SG400 and SG800 users.

‘Virtuoso Print Manager is the biggest game changer we’ve released since CreativeStudio,’ said Darcy Mauro, President of Sawgrass. ‘It enables users of all three of the printers used in our Virtuoso HD Product Decorating Systems to access one powerful, yet easy-to-use programme for the best-quality prints for their printers and software. We’ve been working on this solution for several years and are proud to finally be able to bring it to our customers.’

Virtuoso Print Manager greatly improves production efficiency with sublimation printing and makes it easier than ever to get great colour output. The first of its kind, Virtuoso Print Manager is a universal print management application that works with a wide variety of Sawgrass printers, ink sets and graphic design programmes, including: Windows or Mac OS (for SG400/SG800); CorelDraw, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and CreativeStudio; Virtuoso SG400, SG800, VJ 628 printers; SubliJet-HD CMYK, Pro Photo and Pro Photo XF inks, as well as ChromaBlast-HD and FabricMaker-HD.

Virtuoso Print Manager is easy to use, yet delivers efficiencies like job and image ganging to save media, as well as Web-to-print and hot folder workflows found only in costly and complicated RIP software. Additional features include: built-in ICC profiles for a wide variety of substrates and image types; direct import of .JPG, .PNG and CreativeStudio’s .SG or SGZ files.

Virtuoso Print Manager replaces CreativeStudio Print and Color Manager for CreativeStudio users, and is available for free download to Virtuoso customers through the Sawgrass website. It also enables VJ 628 users to print from CreativeStudio for the first time.
