Realistic 3D print visualization

Studio is 3D software, made specifically for packaging artwork professionals; especially for the ones that use Adobe® Illustrator® extensively. Studio is also a powerful communication tool. It lets you create exciting 3D visuals to show your client, ranging from PDF files with 3D content, to movies, a virtual pack shot or to a shopping shelf.


This is a very powerful selling tool, offering more conceptual designs with greater freedom.

Realistic 3D packaging mock-ups

Esko’s virtual mock-up software comes with patented dynamic 3D print visualization. Render 3D packaging mock-ups with a wide range of substrates, printing and finishing effects in real-time.
