SVG Document Templates Version 1.0 has been released by Worldlabel.com. The SVG documents include CD, DVD, address and round label templates. Documents are views in a Web Browser and can be opened and edited in graphic programs installed on a Mac OSX and other operating systems which support SVG for designing labels. The concept can be used for all other types of graphic layouts, blank pre-print templates and designed graphics for rapid viewing on the Web, proofing, transfer of documents, editing and printing.
SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) is a language for describing two-dimensional graphics and graphical applications in XML. SVG 1.1 is a W3C recommendation
SVG templates in 14 different label sizes have been developed by Worldlabel.com Inc. SVG Document Template Version 1.0 utilizes both SVG and XML. The documents are in Internet Web browser form and can be viewed with Firefox, Opera or Internet Explorer and other Web Browsers supporting SVG. These SVG documents are best viewed in Firefox. For better viewing of the documents with Internet Explorer, right click on document and use the Zoom In and Zoom Out function. For editing, right click on View > Save Link As, open up in a SVG editor. Documents can easily be opened for designing and creating labels in several Graphic editors supporting SVG. To view documents, please visit: SVG Document Templates 1.0 Requirements: SVG viewer installed. Download here.
In order to create these documents, Inkscpape.org, a free Open Source program was utilized. Inkscape.org is a Vector Graphics Editor, similar to Adobe Illustrator and CorelDraw that strives to be SVG Compliant, responsive and extensible. Adobe's Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign have included SVG capabilities. Corel and Quark have also included SVG import and export funtions in their core products. W3.org Open Source graphic editor Amaya, Sketsa, GIMP and several others Open Source graphic programs supporting SVG can be used and downloaded for free.
?We are very excited about these SVG documents. We believe these types of SVG documents can be used for a multitude of other graphic and design applications for quick viewing, proofing, Web transfer, opening, editing and printing," said Russell Ossendryver, managing director of Worldlabel.com Inc. Worldlabel.com sees large benefits using SVG files for Document Management when compared to PDF. They help start bridging the gap between web design and print design.
SVG graphics are entirely code based and supports millions of colors and can actually be edited in a basic text editor like notepad. SVG breaks the 216-color browser barrier so businesses can now present the same identity on the web as they do in print enhancing the value for presentation. The potential for wide spread use of this format for blank pre-press templates, layouts and other graphics applications is obvious. Worldlabel.com will release more label sizes including European paper sizes and intend to release templates for all standard size print and digital media. We believe that at some point these type of document will become the universal choice file format for graphic designers.
Worldlabel.com will continue to do further R&D with SVG Documents and will improve the quality of documents as code, components and technology become available. Worldlabel.com is dedicated to the Open Document Format (ODF) and Open Source movement and has recently published a complete collection of label templates for Openoffice.org Writer in US letter, A4 sizes for Europe and Asia, and a collection of label templates for Openoffice.org Draw. These templates utilize the XML format. Visit Worldlabel.com.
