A Digital Printing Network
Hi everyone, I'm new to the board and fairly new using the VersaCamm SP300V. I have created artwork in Corel X3 and exported to EPS and when trying to put it in VersaWorks it is telling me the file is corrupt. I have been doing this on every file I have printed and not had problems with it until today. Any suggestions on how to fix it? I have a sample design I am supposed to deliver this weekend and can't get the file imported. It will work as a jpeg, but I can't cut that.
From time to time we have the same issue exporting an eps from flexi into versaworks. Close both corel and versaworks and then restart your computer. For some reason this takes care of the problem 90% of the time.
Additionally, the EPS file is like a Zip File in that some compression occurs during the save file process. As suggested by Emily at Imprintables Warehouse (thanks again for your help!), Copy and Paste the design into a new page and save as new EPS file.
The biggest reason I have seen for that error is that when you exported the graphic from Corel, it was not on the page but rather off to one side or another on the layout. Make sure the majority of the graphic is on the page or artboard in Corel prior to exporting.
I have broken the design down and moved each piece and most of the design will work. There is one car in the design that will not export. I think that I'm going to have to save the cars as a jpeg and since I have the cut line already set up, I can use that to cut around the entire design. Wish me luck!
Thanks everyone for your input!
I imported the design again and it would take it with no color added to the mustang. Once I put color on the car it wouldn't take it again. My next step was to change the color to a solid. That didn't work either. I then converted the full design to a jpeg and put my cut lines over it. It is printing now. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. They are going to have two designs to choose from. Thanks everyone for your help. This is going to be fun once I get the hang of it!
We designed and printed this for a car show last year, that's why I asked.
It was a combination of vector and raster.........since the cars themselves were extracted from actual photos of some of the events participants
I made the cut line manually, to encompass both types of elements
All I'm saying is that it doesn't necessarily need to be one way or the other..........it's certainly okay....and even sometimes more beneficial..........to combine raster and vector objects
Yours looks awesome. Mine just looks plain now. This car show only had 30 participants last year and they didn't print shirts. They are hoping for at least 100 this time. I guess it's all going to be trial and error until I figure it out.
I printed it both ways. For some reason it was hard to weed the one without the background, so I left it. The customer was pleased with the design. I will be at the event, so I may take pictures of the cars and use them for next years event.
