ADD A VINTAGE, WORN LOOK TO YOUR PRINTS WITH SIGNLAB P&C

Looking to add customizable aging and a vintage look to your prints right from the queue? The Distressed effect plug-in allows you to apply a filter over your image or design, which adds a weathered and worn look. You can create these masks and save them as presets for future use.

For an example, we’ll take an ale label and give it a vintage look, then print it on a shirt. To start:

  1. Import the job into the color queue for your DTG printer
  2. Right click on the Job and go to “Effects”
  3. Choose “Distressed”.

The “Distressed” plug-in dialog comes up and a default preview is generated. Below the preview you can zoom in and out. The main dialog is set to Basic Mode, where there are 4 sliders.

  • Image desaturation.
  • Strength of tint color.
  • Strength of preset masks.
  • Strength of generated texture.

Below, you can define your tint colors, choose a preset mask, apply sliders for threshold, and scale and rotate the generated mask. At the bottom there is a button to save, load, reset, or choose a preset. Selecting “OK” will apply the effect.
