SAi has announced dates for a new series of informative educational training workshops, designed to equip signmaking and large format print providers with the latest knowledge and techniques to run their businesses more efficiently and profitably.
The nationwide FlexiLIVE training sessions will focus on SAi’s industry-leading Flexi signmaking solution—the de facto standard for sign-specific design tools, RIP and print, print-and-cut, and direct vinyl cutting. Trainings will predominantly be conducted by Flexi-certified instructor Mark Rugen, and held over a full day at Mutoh and reseller training facilities.
Designed around a classroom-style, the hands-on workshops are tailored to offer participants a valuable look at the functionality and workflow benefits of the all-in-one SAi Flexi print and cut software product, which is used by almost three out of four shops.
Each FlexiLIVE tutorial will examine aspects ranging from the fundamentals, such as setting preferences, working with smart objects and becoming familiar with Production Manager; to more advanced time-saving tactics including contour cutting and perforated cutting options, accessing Adobe plugins through Flexi, downloading and installing ICC profiles, and File Import and Export features.
In addition to the full-day workshops, SAi is also partnering with Mutoh to deliver condensed ninety-minute FlexiLIVE training sessions at select NBM tradeshows.
