Schlenk Metallic Pigments—manufacturer of metal powders, pigments and pastes for more than 130 years—has been named a technology partner by Color-Logic. Announcing the supply partnership, Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing Mark Geeves commented: “Color-Logic has worked with Schlenk Metallic Pigments to develop a superior metallic silver UV flexographic ink that is ideal for use with the Color-Logic Process Metallic Color System. Sold under the Color-Logic label, this proprietary UV flexographic ink ensures flexographic printers that their presses will produce the superb metallic special effects for which Color-Logic has become known. Schlenk Metallic Pigments thus becomes the first Color-Logic technology partner producing qualified Color-Logic UV flexographic inks. Licensed Color-Logic flexographic printers can obtain these specialized inks made by Schlenk through their current ink supplier.
The Color-Logic Process Metallic Color System enables flexographic printers to produce dramatic metallic special effects on their conventional flexographic presses. Printers are encouraged to produce their own proprietary metallic swatchbooks on the substrates their customers most often utilize. These swatchbooks dramatically demonstrate the 250 metallic hues available using only five colors on press. Using the Color-Logic system, printers can achieve metallic effects without expensive post-press finishing.
Color-Logic develops color communication systems and software tool sets for a variety of special effect printing applications. Color-Logic provides brand owners, product managers, corporations, and their advertising agencies the ability to differentiate themselves and their clients with a simple print production process that yields dramatic results. Color-Logic special effects utilize the existing workflows of printers and designers, yielding dynamic results without the use of special equipment. Color-Logic supports the value of print and works with designers and printers to enhance their printed media. For more information, visit www.color-logic.com or call 513-258-0047.
