Wizard CMC Integration

Connect FrameReady to your Wizard Mat Cutter

FrameReady is integrated with the Mat Designer program FrameShop by Wizard, which offers you the option to connect Work Orders to FrameShop and vice versa.*

You can select a Wizard design template where the price of design is determined by the number of mats that make up the design. Use Wizard MatDesigner to design multiple opening mats.

Note: All the CMC integrations in FrameReady communicate in both directions: you can push data from FrameReady to the CMC software, make edits in the CMC software, and then push the changes back into FrameReady.
