Workflowz has launched, Griffin 1.0 from Tilia Labs, a prepress solution to automate layout creation for wide format printing.
Workflowz say, Griffin leverages the Phoenix nesting engine ‘to create true-shape, tightly nested layouts, helping drive down substrate costs, reduce errors, and increase throughput’.
Alan Dixon, CEO at Workflowz says, “Griffin is neutral and agnostic as it will work on anything, unifying in a single way. This software is aimed at wide format printers.”

Workflowz says the workflow in Griffin is simple and can be mastered with minimal training. Artwork files are input into the system with various production information such as quantity, shape, and size. Users can then select from a library a substrate board or roll size and automatically generate tightly nested results. Once nesting has completed, marks such as registration, barcodes, and grommets are automatically added. Finally, output can be generated for printing and cutting using presets for different devices. The company says all of this can be completed in minutes.
Sagen de Jonge, CEO of Tilia Labs, says, “The release of Tilia Griffin marks a big milestone for our company. It is our second product to roll out into the market, and it also shows our dedication to the wide format segment, which we feel has a lot of room to grow and we have a lot of value to offer. Initial testing with beta customers has been positive so we are confident customers will enjoy fast return on investment with the time savings and advantages it has to offer”.
Dixon says, “The release of Griffin is perfect as it appeals to digital printers who tend to have both roll fed and sheet fed devices. Saving time and materials its essential for all customers to be efficient in this highly competitive market.”
Griffin 1.0 is available to purchase now.
