ONYX Software: How to create a canvas wrap


In this video, we’re going to create a
canvas wrap in Job Editor. I’m going to begin by opening my file into Job Editor. In preparation for this file, I need to rotate 90 degrees. So I’m going to select [Preview and Size] tab, choose 90 degrees, and select [Apply]. This file requires the dimension of the height to be resized. So I’m going to change that height to 24″. Now that I have the rotation and size set. I need to control my bleed amount. So I’m going to go to my [Finishing] tab and I’m going to be in my
[Bleed] tab and I’m going to enable my bleed. The requirement for this bleed is
for a 2″ bleed. So I’m going to set my numbers all around for a 2″ bleed
area. Also I want to set my Bleed Type to be color. And I’m going to sample a color from my image. So I use my eyedropper, and select my color. If I don’t like that and I want to change it. I can select my eyedropper again and choose a slightly different color. At this point, I have my 2″ bleed for my canvas wrap. However, I also require an additional 1″ around this outer area. And this does not have to be any type of printed
subject matter. So I’m going to go down to my Trim Box,, and I’m just going to add
1″ additional overall. As you see, that will just be media base. There is no
printing that takes place in that trim size. So, I have an additional 1″ of extra media space past that point of my 2″ bleed. And my 2″ bleed again
is a custom color setting. Now I can choose the type of marks I want to use. And I’m going to select frame. In
addition, I may go to my Marks tab and set for a [Crop Outline] around this area. It
is just depends on what type of marks you may want to use. Now that I have all
of my settings created for this canvas wrap. I begin to notice that this would
make a very nice Quick Set. While I’m in Job Editor, I’m able to go to File>Export As a Quick Set. In this screen, I’m able to choose any additional
options I’d like to have as part of my Quick Set. I’m going to save this. And I’m
going to save this to a location that I have specifically made for my exported Quick Sets. I’m going to give this Quick Set an appropriate name such as “Canvas Wrap”. Now, keep in mind, if you are creating different settings to canvas wraps, different dimensions, different types of marks, you can give these very
unique names – “Canvas Wrap for 2″ Bleed” or “Canvas Wrap for Full Bleed” and
distinguish them uniquely. So I’ll save that in my folder, and now I’ll submit my
job to the RIP-Queue. Now we see our completed file with all the canvas wrap settings that we need. At this point, I would print my file and I would just continue on with my next jobs. Let’s take a look at the Quick Set that
we exported. We’ve exported that information out of Job Editor. And it contained all
the settings that made this canvas wrap possible. I could import that information
into my Quick Sets and use that time and time again. This is going to keep me
consistent, repeatable, reliable, and save me time because I won’t have to do these
things manually. I will just apply the presets of the Quick Set whenever I need
to perform this canvas wrap technique. I’m going to go to Configure Printer,
stop my processing. I’m not ripping or printing. And my first tab is my Quick
Sets. In the lower right corner, I’m going to [Import] and I’m going to choose the Quick Set that I just created that was my canvas wrap. And now I have that canvas wrap with the
same parameters of what I created and set in Job Editor. Now for future uses,
all I need to do is open my job, select that particular Quick Set, canvas
wrap. There’s no need for me to go to Job Editor and make any changes. This Quick
Set will contain all the parameters that created that particular canvas wrap. Open
the file and it’s going to apply those conditions to my file and I’ll be ready
to print that. Now I see this file with the Quick Set parameters applied based
on the conditions I set in Job Editor. That saved me time. I didn’t have to do
this manually. All the information was applied automatically by the conditions
in the Quick Set.
