SAi’s new three-dimensional design software set for North American premiere at SGIA Expo

Flexi-powered SAi DisplayGenie software - featuring easy-to-adjust display and box template library - cuts design time and reduces costly production errors

Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - SA International (SAi), the leading provider of software solutions for the professional sign making, wide-format digital printing and CAD/CAM for CNC machining industries, will use SGIA Expo as the North American debut for its new point-of-purchase (POP) display and box design software, DisplayGenie.

Tailored to print business seeking to extend their applications offering, the award-winning* SAi DisplayGenie eliminates multiple steps to improve job creation efficiencies and simplify the structural design of folding carton, corrugated plastic and rigid honeycomb material POP and free-standing display units, as well as packaging.

"SGIA Expo is the ideal platform to demonstrate SAi DisplayGenie's plethora of business-enhancing capabilities to North America," says Annette Plummer, Director of Marketing, North America at SAi. "With its vast catalogue of templates, and at a fraction of the price of high-end packages that are typically tied to specific manufacturer's hardware, SAi DisplayGenie equips print business with the means to expand their application offering. This enables them to increase revenues and strengthen their competitive edge - all while enjoying enhanced production operations thanks to a streamlined and expedited job design process."

Extensive library of easy-to-adjust POP-display and box templates

SAi DisplayGenie is compatible with all existing wide-format RIP software that drives flatbed printers and cutters and features a simple, yet complete toolset to enable easier display and box structure design. Powered by the company's renowned Flexi software, DisplayGenie features an extensive library of continually-expanding display and box templates. This allows print providers to quickly choose and personalize these to meet their client's exact specification. Using DisplayGenie's intuitive interface, designers can enter new geometric values, from which the DisplayGenie software then parametrically rebuilds designs in seconds.

Further cost- and time-saving benefits are provided by an integrated graphic and structural design with animated 3D folding preview, which helps maintain workflow efficiency by catching any mistakes before production. This is also aided by the ability to export rotational package display or box designs as 3D PDF files, for customer review prior to production. As a result, SAi DisplayGenie overcomes the troublesome pain-points faced by designers when creating such pieces in their existing third-party software.

SAi expects DisplayGenie to particularly appeal to those business that already operate a flatbed printer, but might also be seeking to install a flatbed cutter, which, in conjunction with the software, would enable them to increase revenues by extending their scope of services.

Live and informative presentations, plus on-booth giveaway

During SGIA, SAi will be hosting continuous presentations at its booth (#3520) enabling visitors to gain useful insight into how DisplayGenie can enhance their design workflow. Those attending an SAi presentation will also be entered into a raffle to win a large screen TV, with the winner being announced at 2pm on Friday 16th.
