Color-Logic introduces the Color-Logic Process Metallic Color system, for communicating color, printing metallics, and creating special effects using inkjet, flexographic, digital (HP, Xeikon) or offset presses. The system uses metallic ink or substrates, with traditional CYMK inks, to create 250 unique metallic colors and a variety of special effects for printed signage, literature, point-of-purchase, car wraps, packaging, labels, etc.
Color-Logic provides printers with forms for printing their own color guides (swatchbooks). Graphic designers, brand managers, and advertising agencies use these color guides and the Color-Logic software to create files for printing. Other systems rely on swatchbooks printed on a stock and by a press that may not represent the production process available to the designer. As new substrates, coatings or other technologies become available, printers can quickly print new swatchbooks. Color-Logic standardizes the process to the benefit of both the printer and customers, making printing metallics simple and consistent. With the system, both graphic designers and printers can be assured that their jobs will look exactly as expected.
Printers are licensed by Color-Logic and authorized to print metallics only after demonstrating their capability with the process.
