Digital printing is rapidly gaining market share worldwide often because digital presses can easily print variable data. Many printers choose digital presses because of their ability to print variable data easily. And now, with Color-Logic, the variable data benefits of the latest presses are available when printing with white ink or toner on the metallic stock.

Geeves commenting on the Color-Logic white ink mask

Commenting on the use of white ink on a metallic substrate, the company’s Director of Sales and Marketing Mark Geeves said: “Working with white ink or toner on a metallic substrate requires that the graphic designer or prepress operator prepare a white ink mask as part of the digital file set. With digital variable data printing, each page requires a unique white ink mask. Except with Color-Logic! The proprietary Color-Logic software automatically creates each different white ink mask, eliminating the extra labor, and making the labor cost of variable data printing on metallic substrate no more expensive than on conventional substrate.”

Discussing the financial implications for digital printers, Geeves continued: “When used to prepare files for printing variable data jobs on digital presses, Color-Logic is a real game-changer. Metallic variable data printing on presses with white ink/toner and a RIP that supports the Color-Logic file format opens up an entirely new value proposition for licensed Color-Logic printers and their clients. To assist current Color-Logic technology partners and dealers, we recently developed a video showing how quickly and easily metallic variable data files can be prepared using Adobe Illustrator and the Color-Logic design suite palettes. We make available the artwork and sample data sets so Color-Logic licensees can produce the files themselves to show their clients.”

The company develops color communication systems and software toolsets for a variety of special effect printing applications. The company provides brand owners, product managers, corporations, and their advertising agencies to differentiate themselves and their clients with a simple print production process that yields dramatic results.

Its decorative effects utilize printers and designers’ existing workflows, yielding dynamic results without using special equipment. It also 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 +1-513-258-0047.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
