Customer Focus Announces Issue of U.S. Patent
"Our team has created a solution that answers a clear market need in the print, signage and promotional product sectors," said Vicky Robinson, group managing director of Customer Focus. "Incomplete artwork and lack of position guides make up the majority of an estimated 62 percent of orders not being factory ready. This solution presents an instant solution to address one of the major inefficiencies in the supply chain.
"For the first time, artwork can be uploaded, edited and even created by an end-user or distributor, instantly viewed as a virtual sample with the correct print method, and then a print-ready file appended to the order," she continued. "Alongside the many B2B applications, our users can be up and running with a free account by simply logging in with a Facebook or Google+ account, and they will instantly have access to all of the tools needed to create artwork for home, business, school or college."
Invented by Martin Varley, the patent was issued Aug. 11, 2015 with Patent No. U.S. 9,104,298.
