Eliminate the guesswork of job costing, with the exciting new Ink Estimation tool in Flexi 10. Estimate how much ink each print job will use to help calculate the true cost of every print job. Even the most seasoned print shops will find this feature to be an incredibly useful tool. Gain a better understanding of your production and make more informed decisions about upcoming expenses, incoming jobs and daily workflow with the Ink Estimation tool.
This new advanced shadow feature is one of the most requested features by Flexi users. Smooth Shadow allows you to apply transparency effects to shadows for smoother and softer edges, taking your design work to a whole new level.
Nest by Vinyl Color
When a vinyl-cutting job calls for more than one color, Flexi 10 will nest each color separately. This maximizes media savings and minimizes production time.
Contour Cut Nesting in Production Manager
Now you can nest contour cut jobs right in Production Manager. Add jobs with multiple contour paths from 3rd party applications directly into Production Manager and eliminate the extra steps. This is just one of the many ways Flexi 10 is increasing your productivity.
Unlimited Split Lines
Add, delete, and move split lines for maximum flexibility. Place split lines anywhere–in between letters, beside lines of text, even place multiple lines across large objects. Plus, delete discreet lines in small spaces. This feature makes weeding easy, accurate, and effortless.

Flexi will apply these actions while keeping the original colors, blends and transparencies intact.
