Ex novo

This is a discussion thread · 3 replies
Hi there,

today I needed to say the following sentence: "we will print the graphics anew" in the sense that the graphics will be printed one again, we will not reuse the old ones.

I was wondering if it would be possible to use the word: "ex novo" like synonym for "anew"

Could it be understandable even if it is latin word? Further, is "anew"correct for what I was meaning??

Thanks

Few or none will understand 'ex novo'. 'Anew' is Ok, but slightly literary. I would use one of these:

We will print the graphics again.

We will reprint the graphics.

Dear,

thanks. It is very clear.

Maybe could I say: "the graphics will be brand new" does it work?

Thanks!!

As long as they know that they are not newly designed but just newly printed.
