Color-Logic has announced that licensed Color-Logic printers with HP Indigo cut sheets and digital label presses can now utilize their HP Mosaic software with Color-Logic Pattern-FX to automatically generate the white ink masks required to do variable data printing on metallic substrates.

Discussing the capability, the company co-founder and chief technical officer Richard Ainge said: “At Color-Logic, we believe that All Print Starts With Design, and we have expanded the capability of HP Mosaic to permit using white ink on a metallic substrate not only to produce metallic colors but also for print embellishments and variable data work. Producing metallic colors and variable embellishments on metallic substrates requires a separate white ink mask for each unique page, and Color-Logic produces these automatically. Licensed Color-Logic printers can find detailed instructions for using Color-Logic with HP Mosaic inside the Color-Logic Smart Centre.”

The company develops color communication systems and software toolsets for a variety of special effect printing applications. It 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.  

The company decorative effects utilize the existing workflows of printers and designers, yielding dynamic results without the use of 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.

 

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
