Ashlar-Vellum has had a long relationship with those in the box and temporary point-of-purchase design industry. Through the years, we’ve partnered with three different box design companies to provide the CAD engine behind such products as Score!, Rules, and Box Vellum.
It began in the late ’80’s, when Marin Newell, the original developer of Vellum software and founder of Ashlar, worked with Michael Collins to develop Ashlar Score! for the box design industry.
The Score! product line was later sold to Dimensional Impressions in the early ’90’s who continued to develop it in conjunction with our Vellum and Graphite software. DI was subsequently sold to ArtWork Systems. When ArtWork Systems was acquired by Esko they discontinued Score!
In the mid ’90’s the Japanese company, Comnet, began developing Box Vellum, also based on our Vellum and Graphite software. Box Vellum is sold throughout the world, but rarely in the United States. It includes a standard library plus many special features for box and display design. For more information visit the English language Box Vellum page on the Comnet website.
In 2009 Ashlar-Vellum entered into a new partnership with Michael Collins, one of the original developers of Score!, to establish AlphaCorr for marketing his products Rules and SteelRules. AlphaCorr software reads all Score! files including version 6.
Rules creates die lines for die cuts to drive a sample table or for processing through external die design software. A box and point-of-purchase display library is included. SteelRules builds on Rules with additional features for die design.
When looking for a solution to your box and temporary point-of-purchase design software needs, you can trust Ashlar-Vellum who’s partnered with the leaders of the industry for over 20 years.
