Esko is celebrating two decades of its ArtPro packaging prepress editor. ArtPro is a full-featured packaging preproduction editor offering unique technologies and dedicated tools focused on relieving major prepress pain points, according to Esko. It supports all industry standard file formats and can be integrated into any packaging workflow and can seamlessly be integrated with ArtiosCAD and Automation Engine.
Originally designed as an easy to use Mac-based software tool for cleaning up documents, ArtPro evolved over the years into a full-featured packaging preproduction solution well placed to keep pace with the growing demands of the market.
Initially, ArtPro was developed to assist prepress operations such as scanning, editing and color corrections. Soon after, ArtPro alleviated film-based stripping by digitally aligning graphics to CAD designs as well as stepping and repeating single designs on the print sheet. Other important features followed and today ArtPro is utilized by more than 15,000 professionals for their day to day tasks in prepress departments all over the world.
