Easy Steps
to Produce
C-based Gerber OMEGA™ software
allows you to import and create graphics
from a variety of sources, assign
spot colors and other special output
attributes, and output to the EDGE and
the vinyl cutter.
EDGE output, using pigment-based
Gerber Color™ foils, is instantly durable.
Print colors such as white, shiny metallic
and super dense black, along with
more than 70 spot and process colors.
Create custom contour kiss cuts
and back cuts for instant finishing.
Alignment between printing and
cutting takes just moments and is
remarkably accurate. Gerber offers a
variety of plotters to fit every need.
Design the graphics in GERBER
OMEGA™ or other popular software.
Select material and print using
the GERBER EDGE FX™ printer.
Cut the graphics on a Gerber
15” plotter.
