Color-Logic’s Process Metallic Color System empowers designers, provides a brand with shelf impact at a fraction of the cost typically associated with metallic printing, and provides printers and convertors with an accurate color communication system for metallic ink printing. It is inarguably the world’s first color communication system for printing on to foil and reflective substrates, when using white ink and CMYK. Color-Logic is compatible with offset, inkjet, flexography, digital, screen and gravure printing processes. It is ideal for, but not limited to, packaging, pouches, direct mail, POP, signage, post cards, literature, booklets, labels, shrink sleeves, calendars and many more.
Using the Process Metallic Color System, it is possible to create a wealth of special effects. Each effect is pre-built into the palettes and plug-ins available with the Design Suite package. Also provided is a master class tutorial and comprehensive online training video that guide the user through the process of creating a design, using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. Some of the key components of Process Metallic Color System are:
Process Metallic Color Charts – Color Communication
The Process Metallic Color Charts are the core foundation of the Process Metallic Color System, which provides a color communication system for 250 metallic colors for decorative effect substrates, inks and coatings. Printers and convertors are granted a license to manufacture their own Process Metallic Color Charts, versus trying to match a generic purchased swatch book of metallic colors, which was printed under unknown conditions and more often, with substrates and inks that are not applicable to the printing process of the printer.
Design Suite – Decorative effect software
The Color-Logic Design Suite enables graphic designers to create a virtually unlimited array of metallic colors and decorative effects using color palettes and plug-ins for Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and QuarkXpress. The most affordable system for printing metallic colors and decorative effects, Color-Logic requires only five colors to create 250 metallic colors and decorative effects in a single pass of a 5-color press (or multiple passes on a press with 4 colors or less).
FX-Viewer – Visualization software
The FX-Viewer is on-screen visualization software that enables graphic designers, agencies and printers to visualize the dramatic Color-Logic effects on their monitor before proofing or going to press. The simple and easy-to-learn user interface provides customers with a powerful tool for visualizing the impact Color-Logic can bring to their printing.
