Canon introduces new version of PosterArtist

Software Solutions

Canon has launched PosterArtist v1.1, a new version of its web based design software for the creation of posters, banners and signage for private, as well as business use in, for example, events, hospitality and corporate messaging.

PosterArtist v1.1 enables two sided and variable printing, as well as offering new templates to support the creation of a wide array of applications.

It allows users to easily create professional level designs which can then be printed on Canon's imageRunner Advance DX, imageRunner, i-Sensys X and the imagePress C270 Series of multifunction printers for office use. The software is also compatible with the i-Sensys Series for small business use, the imagePrograf Series of large format printers and the Pixma Series of home printers.

Version 1.1 of PosterArtist allows users to create flyers for retail stores, menus for restaurants and many other applications. By combining the two sided printing and the variable data printing function, users can efficiently print two sided personalised applications, such as certificates, by importing text data from an Excel file and then adding it to the design.

Jennifer Kolloczek, European planning, marketing and innovation senior director, production print at Canon Europe, commented: ‘In the age of screen fatigue, the tactile nature and visual appeal of a printed application has the power to cut through digital noise – helping brand communications to be more powerful, especially when personalised. The new version 1.1 of PosterArtist has an easy to use interface and an array of new templates – helping our customers to create double sided, variable designs for both business and personal use.’

Canon is significantly increasing the number of available templates for applications such as flyers, menus, calendars, and photo collages, in addition to a variety of existing poster designs. The new templates feature complete front and back design options, making it easy to create a unified two sided design. In addition, it is adding clip art, including stamps like ‘Big Sale’ and ‘Limited Time Offer’ and illustrations in a handwritten style.

The new version also supports ‘Auto Photo Fix’ which streamlines the design process further, allowing the photo colour tone and brightness to be adjusted to help create high quality and original designs.

Version 1.1 of PosterArtist is available now at
