Volodymyr Yatsevsky posted on March 22, 2013

LiveArt Sign and Lite products are frequently confusing as they seem to be very similar, despite Sign is a cheaper alternative. This article briefly describes the main differences comparing LiveArt Sign designer software with other online design products from LiveArt.

LiveArt Sign Designer is a self-service solution for any sort of signs production and printing facilities. Its primary objective is allowing customers to visualize their design without professional help of company designers and streamline the ordering process for business owners. As customers complete their design, they instantly see the proof and production operators would get order details including production-ready design outputs. The main features are:

  • Inches or millimeters visible ruler to see measurements of visible area;
  • For additional convenience, user can place text and design artwork even beyond operating area, although being advised that printer operators will have indication what needs to be printed;
  • Preview printable area may take different shapes like rectangle, square, circle or oval shapes;

At the same time the following aspects are normally implemented beyond designer, taking into account specifics of different e-commerce platforms. So, LiveArt Sign 1.0 has not:

  • Product selection catalog. All product details are passed via id directly into designer, so the designer already loads with certain product loaded;
  • Ability to put product template on background, since Sign mostly used for signs, decals and plain areas where the design itself is printed;
  • Undo/Redo controls;
  • Ability to Save/Load designs. Ability to load design by Design ID is still available;

Please note that LiveArt Sign 2.0 features all of the above mentioned features and currently is the most sophisticated sign and banner online design software.
