Control vector strokes with WidthScribe

Gain full control of your variable stroke widths in Illustrator with WidthScribe. Dynamic, organic and bursting with creative possibilities, these special stroke types offer much more control than equivalent brushes. This plugin overcomes the simple usr control offered natively, allowing selections to be controlled as one, plus refined and precise control where needed through intuitive on-screen controls and panels.
The second side of WidthScribe is Width Stamp which offers astonishing creative possibilities from artwork and image replication through stroke width tones, through to artwork for security printing (bank notes, passes and more).
