UPDATE: SAWGRASS CREATIVESTUDIO Lastly, I'd like to highlight Cre- ativeStudio. CreativeStudio is a cloud- based online designer that comes free with Sawgrass's Virtuoso HD Product Dec- orating Systems (four-color SG400 and SG800 desktop printers and the new eight- color VJ 628 medium-format printer). It eliminates the cost and learning curve associated with desktop design software like Corel and Adobe, as well as the costs associated with purchasing stock designs. CreativeStudio is not as powerful as desktop design applications such as Adobe or Corel products.

CreativeStudio includes an ever-expanding selection of product tem- plates (800+ as of press time) direct from the manufacturers, which significantly streamlines production. It also offers a carefully curated and growing selection of over 6,000 art templates, graphics and photos (a $3,000+ value), with themes New features of CreativeStudio help sublimators save time and cut down on costs.
