          Updates to ROES & New products!

          As you may know, we are committed to keeping our Filmet Connect ROES software up to date and user friendly!  In an effort to do so, we've made the following changes/additions recently:
          •  Die-cut wallets: A new guide with a dotted red line has been added to our wallet units.  This new line will show you the safe-zone for die-cutting quickly and easily.  While the gray area showing you the approximate die-cut area will still show, the new red line will help you to better position critical elements within the template.
          • Proofs w/ edges: No need to switch tabs to order proofs with edges - we've added the border option to select, value and deluxe proofs now!  We've also given you the option of adding your file name to the FRONT of your 4x6 proofs in either a large, low opacity font or a smaller, lower left corner font.  Both choices are available in black or white!
          • 2010 Templates: All templates with years have been updated.  Please note - you should not order the "next year" option unless you want 2012 - all "current year" templates are now 2011.  If you are still seeing the 2010 templates, please use the question mark button in the lower left corner of your Filmet Connect ROES to clear your caches.
          • New sizes:  We have added new templates for 18x24 and 24x36 sizes!
          • Notepads:  We have added a new notebook product!  Check out the sizes, options and designs in the press-printed tab of our standard catalog in ROES.  Just a reminder - studio samples are 25% off!
          • Fonts:  We have added a whole boatload of new fonts for you to choose from!  Please note - if you do not have a selected font loaded on your personal computer, you will not see the font displayed accurately.  Please use our font chart as a handy reference to help you choose!  VIEW HERE
