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. Now Wilcom and Corel have gone a step further with significant enhancements to how graphic and stitch files interact including the ability to convert not only vector designs but also bitmaps to embroidery. 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. "Wilcom's unique all-in-one .EMB design file format is the basis of a powerful ecosystem for everything needed in embroidery and multi-decoration design and production. With the latest e3 release, there are over 200 new features or enhancements based on excellent feedback from the Wilcom community of designers and digitizers."
