Aleyant Adds Smart Objects to its eDocBuilder™ Variable Data Publishing System

Thursday, April 14, 2016

Press release from the issuing company

Enhanced viewing capabilities improve user experience

Wheaton IL. Aleyant, an innovative leader in providing robust software services to the graphic communications industry at value-driven prices, today announced another important enhancement to Aleyant eDocBuilder, its web-based variable data publishing system. eDocBuilder is specifically designed to easily integrate with Aleyant and third-party web-to-print and MIS systems to bring template-based variable data publishing within easy reach for users at all levels of skill. The latest addition, Surface Wrap, enables users to set up a template that will deliver a preview of the final object in context. For example, instead of simply viewing a finished wine bottle label, the user can choose to view the label as it would appear on the bottle itself.

“We are excited about this new capability,” said Greg Salzman, Aleyant’s President. “It provides a new level of realism in the design process that will add significant value for customers while still retaining the ease of use eDocBuilder is known for and allowing printers and their customers to use tools they are already familiar with. For example, we decided to use Photoshop as a means to set up Surface Wrap previews as it’s a tool that our customers generally already have and know how to use.” 

The Process

  • The customer uploads a pre-made Photoshop PSD file to the eDocBuilder template. 
  • The PSD file uses layers set as a Smart Object in Photoshop. Smart Object is an Adobe name for the type of layer required for Surface Wrap. 
  • By numbering the layers, the appropriate layer will be replaced by a page from the customer's eDocBuilder template. 
  • When the user is finished customizing the template, the Surface Wrap preview will be shown. The customer can accept the preview or go back to make additional changes.

Aleyant will be demonstrating this new capability at Dscoop San Antonio April 14 to 16, as well as at drupa 2016 in Dusseldorf, May 31 through June 10.
