Studio 16.1

Studio Toolkit for Shrink Sleeves:

  • Ability to add a print area to the 2D technical drawing of the sleeve. This indicates to the artwork operator how close to the edges the print can go.
  • The gap between the sleeve and object is now three times as small than in an older version of Toolkit.
