Graphtec developed i-DesignR Pro vinyl and rhinestone software to help you get started creating professionally designed work as good looking, fast and profitable as possible.
Yes, the free Cutting Master 2 (plug-in software that works with CorelDRAW) software that comes with all Graphtec cutters, works and works very nicely. However, that does not change two other facts, which are equally true…
First, is the fact that you are still going to have to spend time in learning how to use the Cutting Master 2 program. Second, is the fact that if you want to one day do the really neat and profitable work, you will need to become a CorelDRAW expert.
I-DesignR Pro is a dedicated program that does it all for you, as you learn. Here is what Graphtec has to say about their program (my practical comments follow)…
Thinking back to my retail decades, I was pretty hardnosed. I could’ve cared less about bells and whistles. I wanted to know what something would do to make my life easier and more profitable. I didn’t mind spending the bucks, if it helped make my work the best and made me more money. Here are some of my thoughts about i-DesignR PRO - Jack
Rhinestones – The degree of sophistication with this program in making rhinestone templates is stunning! Basically, it will take almost any graphic (a bitmap) and, with a few clicks turn it into a line drawing (a vector map). Another click and correctly spaced and sized holes appear along the lines (like the detailed Phoenix). Another click and specific areas auto-fill (like the “winged heart”).
Place a piece of stencil material in your Graphtec and the cutter very quickly cuts all of those little holes. Weed the stencil, put it on a backing board and brush rhinestones into the holes. Lift the rhinestone design with transfer tape, place on your shirt, heat and presto…rhinestone decorated shirt.
Vinyl Decorated Shirts – There is a ton of money to be made in producing vinyl decorated garments and this program provides KISS tools to keep you on a profitable path. An amazing amount of easy, work consists of “putting black and white, on white and black”.
BUT…even more opportunities are possible because of the i-DesignR PRO artistic design tools. The entire “Colt’s” T-shirt was laid-out, designed and cut from the program. In addition, the program created the fashion looks, on the below shirts. “Wild Thang” is a font in the program, while the two “heart” shirts were colored pictures imported into the program, converted to a vector (line drawing) map and cut on our 24” Graphtec cutter.
Contour cut, Printed graphics – It may take a second to wrap your head around the title, but the concept is easy to understand. To the left is a Unicorn picture, printed with our TransMagic! T-shirt Inks, on our Alpha Gold Dark heat transfer paper and pressed on a shirt. Without trimming, the picture looks like what you would expect…dog ugly! The shirt on the right was printed, going through the i-DesignR PRO program. The program turned the picture into a line drawing, vector map (you can’t see this, but the computer can) and printed a hash-mark in each corner. After printing, we put the printed picture on a carrier sheet (to hold it in the cutter), and put that into the cutter. We pushed one button, one time! The optical eye scanned the picture (a few seconds) and then cut the entire picture out (14 seconds). This produces a more upscale look and shirt and you should charge more. The big advantage to custom printed graphics is that you can print exact colors for your customer!
Sophisticated Sign Making Abilities – Personally, I would probably look at this benefit as a cherry on top of the whipped cream and sundae…not the main thing, but a nice treat. Everything you need to run a sign business, is in the i-DesignR PRO program. While most of you may never actually go into sign business it is nice to know that you can generate another revenue stream, with just a couple of rolls of sign vinyl.
About The i-DesignR PRO program…and your business and profits.
You want to remember that the above is only the “big picture” overview of the program. I kept to the big stuff to keep the page from being too long (and maybe boring), but there are dozens of more features and benefits.
Here are a few more: Spell checker (handy for Hillbilly’s like me), e-mail job proofs to your customer, straight from the program, rhinestone counter (that lets you know exact rhinestone costs), auto-arc text for pleasing spacing, and much more.
The price of the program is not chump change but, in my professional experience, it is not exorbitantly priced either. Were I to go back into retail, I would buy it in a heartbeat! I have a reason for that…
From experience, I know that if I can buy something that helps me become an expert, quickly and easily, I will be able to generate sales and profits much, much quicker. That’s good!
The very last mind-blowing fact about i-DesignR PRO
As you were reading our words and looking at our pretty examples, you may have thought, I know those Alpha pros can do neat things, but could I learn? Well…experienced pros didn’t do the work. That was for a reason-
I wanted to test the ability of the program to teach beginners, like our customers. To do that, I asked two of our associates to spend some time watching and learning from the instructional DVD (neither had ever seen a vinyl cutter software program).
Over two days they watched and learned as much as they could (we are a small company so they had to fit it in, between their regular work). I then asked them to continue learning and to start making some “stuff”. Most of the “stuff” on this page is their work.
Yes, I was very proud of what they did (one is very new and had never even touched a vinyl cutter) but, because neither is a pro, I knew that we had a winner, that would help anyone.
Graphtec i-DesignR CE dedicated software program - $295
CE is Graphtec’s first entry into
a dedicated design and software program, for their vinyl cutters. As such,
it is a much less powerful program, than the new PRO
version of i-DesignR
a FREE Training DVD that teaches you how to use all of the functions in the
program, step by step, and all of the functions are specifically designed
for use with the Graphtec cutters; see it, do it!
If my budget was real tight, I might consider getting this version (to start my learning), while I saved my nickels and quarters, to also buy the upgrade (to the PRO version), listed below. Graphtec did do right by their existing customers.
The combined price of the CE version and upgrade is no higher than the original price of the PRO, so that is why you could “split” program and not pay more.
There is, however, one caveat! The PRO version is much more friendly and easier to learn than this CE version. In developing the very polished PRO version of their software, they knew that they would be competing against two other vinyl software companies. Because of that, they knew that the PRO version had to be very user friendly and well-worth the money.
Graphtec succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. Not only is their program half the cost of the competition, it is so easy to learn and use, that sales have been booming. The competition is not happy!
