ONYX Graphics, Inc. has announced that its software packages are compatible with a recently released metallic ink swatch book. The ReferenceGuide - Metallic Edition was developed by Color Concepts Europe and is currently compatible only with ONYX Thrive print workflow software; and ONYX ProductionHouse, ONYX PosterShop, and ONYX RIPCenter RIP software.
Color Concepts Europe promotes its ReferenceGuide as a complete solution that makes it easy for advertising/design agencies, brand owners and print companies to integrate metallic inks into their designs. The reference guide enables printing of CMYK and metallic colors in a consistent manner on different media. It consists of a swatch book with 100 metallic colors assembled in consultation with various styling experts and advertising/design agencies.
Using the ReferenceGuide, designers can choose a color from the swatch book and then select the correct color profile in the ONYX Color Library. With these certified profiles, users can easily and accurately fill objects, layers or masks in the file, in order to reproduce metallic colors for numerous substrates.
The ReferenceGuide – Metallic Edition box consists of three parts:
- Three printed swatches produced on an Epson SureColor SC-S70600 10-color printer.
- A number of color libraries available for Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator software; and QuarkXPress and CorelDraw software.
- Specially-developed metallic color profiles for use with ONYX software packages.
The ReferenceGuide – Metallic Edition currently supports the Epson SureColor SC-S70600 10-color printer. Ordering information is available from Color Concepts Europe’s website.
