SA International (SAi) has partnered with Avery Dennison to develop specialized software for the company’s TrafficJet Print System. The FlexiSIGN & PRINT Avery Dennison TrafficJet and FlexiPRINT Avery Dennison TrafficJet software will be featured on the new system, which is designed to allow the production of certified output for the global traffic signage market.

As well as incorporating the TrafficJet large format digital printer, the bundle includes the specially-designed versions of SAi’s software for traffic sign production.

The Avery Dennison TrafficJet Print System’s CMSpot6 ink setup uses six dedicated spot colours to match the regulated traffic signage. Utilizing FlexiSIGN & PRINT Avery Dennison TrafficJet edition, users can extend this colour gamut to create custom blends from those spot colours, enabling the production of additional regulated colours, such as purple, orange, and grey, or produce process colours on reflective or commercial graphics, SAi explains. The system also includes an ink estimation tool that allows users to set ink limits independently and gain ink usage estimations for each print job.

The TrafficJet Print System also incorporates the Spot Color Mapping tool which aims to deliver easier mapping between current or international sign databases by automatically mapping to the CMSpot6 Ink Setup. This, SAi explains, helps improve production workflow efficiencies by eliminating the time needed to reassign spot colours or use expensive third-party colour mapping software. This feature also maps a user’s existing art library to Traffic Spot Colors, or if colours are moved from one spot location to another.
