An updated version of Forever Artisan 5® was launched this afternoon. This is the first Artisan 5 update since summer 2016!
Artisan 5 version 5.0.6302.18512 is the version that can be downloaded from the Forever downloads page and is the most current version. HERE is the download link, and HERE is a blog post about the update.
This version has a new Print Guide for photobooks, which is a tool built to improve the overall customer design and print experience. The Print Guide highlights a “safe zone,” which is 1/8 inch in from the targeted trim line on book covers and pages. The safe zone is an industry standard within the design and print manufacturing industry. Any design elements placed within that area are “safe” from being trimmed during the manufacturing process. Although the Print Guide currently applies only to photobooks, the plan is to add similar print guides to all products within Artisan in the near future. We believe this tool will allow you to make sure your books are printed the way you want them to be, without leaving white edges along the sides or cutting off photos or text.

In addition to the Print Guide, this version of Artisan also includes many bug fixes that have been requested by our customers. A complete list can be found HERE.
In the coming weeks, we will be adding training on the Print Guide and other features of the update, so stay tuned! If you have questions in the meantime, feel free to contact us at info@pixels2Pages.net or contact the Forever support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
