New Wilcom and Corel products provide businesses with faster workflows, competitive advantage and new multi-decoration possibilities

The integration of the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite into Wilcom DecoStudio and EmbroideryStudio has changed the way that embroidery is designed and has become the ideal smart tools for embroiderers and garment decorators.

In addition, new algorithms provide even greater stitch quality for more efficient production and beautiful results.

"Wilcom and Corel have been working together now for over five years to develop significant enhancements to how graphic design and embroidery digitizing can interact," says Bill Wilson, CTO and co-founder of Wilcom International.
