Following 18 months of development and testing, UK-based web-to-print specialist Infigo has launched its much anticipated InDesign plug-in, Infigo Invent. The new integration combines the design flexibility of InDesign with the functionality of end-to-end web-to-print. This powerful new integration gives Infigo users greater design capabilities, particularly for dynamic products, while slashing the time it takes to create and migrate PDF templates by up to 80%. Users of Infigo’s web-to-print platform can now create and test new products faster than ever before. Customers who’ve tested the plugin have described it as “a game changer.”
“Our entire approach to web-to-print has always been about listening to our customers and developing modules and integrations that makes their lives easier and their businesses more profitable,” said Douglas Gibson, Managing Director of Infigo. “And this integration is one that we know will massively disrupt the web-to-print industry. Rather than building out a template in the browser from scratch, you can create it in InDesign and import seamlessly to your Infigo storefront. In , it allows you to control settings and features for your design template, directly from InDesign. This includes variable text fonts and colours, restrictions on element position, generation of forms, and much more.”
Gibson added that the enthusiastic feedback from beta testing has reinforced the demand for such an integration. “The overall response is that this is a feature that will set the trend for the web-to-print industry for the next decade. Printers can slash the time it takes to set up a MegaEdit ready template by up to 80%. So not only will our users be able to create more dynamic products, they’ll be able to make them available to customers in a fraction of the time. It’s our goal to empower our customers to take an entrepreneurial approach to web-to-print – to quickly react to industry and societal trends and develop profitable new revenue streams. We feel that this is the missing piece of the puzzle that the industry has been waiting for.” The integration will be regularly updated.
