Corel and Xencelabs Team to Offer Designers and Artists More Creative Flexibility and Workflow Options

Pen Tablets bundled with Painter software deliver a “one-stop shop” for artistic expression

Portland, OR, July 25, 2022 – Corel and Xencelabs Technologies are joining forces to empower the creativity of artists with intuitive and adaptable digital drawing solutions. As of July 25, purchases of Xencelabs Pen Tablets are available as a bundle with Painter® 2023 or Painter Essentials 8 to deliver a complete creative software and digital drawing tool package that makes it easier for digital artists to bring their unique ideas to life. 

Corel Painter is designed for artists who want as much creative freedom as possible in their drawing and painting experience. The Painter application offers brush customization, a smooth workflow, and renowned canvas control that enables an artist to mimic any style of brush or canvas they choose. 

“With the powerful combination of Corel and Xencelabs, artists now have the software and drawing tools necessary to bring any creative idea to life in the digital world,” said Bill Lindsay, Channel Enterprise Sales Manager at Xencelabs.

Xencelabs is dedicated to designing tools that facilitate artistic expression, with products that are innovative, easy to use, and adaptable to any artistic needs or workflow.  Input from professional artists is at the core of all product development.

“The Xencelabs Pen Tablet adds an entirely new dimension to the artist’s creative process,” said Jenny John, Product Manager for Corel Painter. “Using the pen versus a mouse provides enhanced ergonomics, greater precision, and more user control. Painter brushes are built to take advantage of pressure control so artists can have the best natural experience when using the Pen Tablet.”

The Xencelabs Pen Tablets also offer the ability to fine-tune the pen pressure and tilt, allowing artists to truly emulate traditional media and the natural drawing experience. The added benefit of the Quick Keys™ keyboard shortcut accessory enables artists to incorporate shortcut keys into their regular workflow through an easy-to-use interface and programmable buttons. 

The Xencelabs/Corel Painter bundles are available through the Xencelabs e-store starting July 25, and with its Education 10 Packs through B&H Photo & Video. For more information on the company and its products, visit
