Extensis and Esko Partner to Guarantee Font Accuracy in Package Design Workflows

Extensis demonstrates new font management connector for ArtPro+ at Eskoworld; enables immediate access to fonts in packaging workflows

Portland, Ore.―June 5, 2018―Extensis® announced today it is partnering with Esko®, a global supplier of integrated solutions for the packaging, labels, sign and display industries. The two companies have teamed up to deliver a font management connector for Esko’s next generation packaging prepress editor, ArtPro+, guaranteeing font accuracy in package design workflows.

“As fonts play an integral role in packaging design, ensuring accuracy and consistency is critical for producing a high-quality product,” said Toby Martin, Vice President of Development and Strategy at Extensis. “By connecting our font management solution with ArtPro+, customers have immediate access to the fonts they need, when they need them, and can make on-the-fly edits to fix critical, last minute text changes. Not only does this save time and money, but upholds brand integrity.”

Demonstrating the solution this week at Eskoworld, the new connector integrates Extensis’ comprehensive font management solution – Universal Type Server – with ArtPro+, enabling customers to:

  • Gain immediate access to the fonts they need, when they need them
  • Make on-the-fly, live text edits
  • Fix critical, last-minute prepress text changes
  • Reduce inconsistencies and font errors
  • Increase workflow efficiency

Chris Meyer, Product Owner for Universal Type Server at Extensis, will demo the solution at the conference, sharing the crucial role proper font usage plays in ensuring brand consistency in the packaging process.
