Color-Logic certifies Polyart double-sided substrates.

Color-Logic has certified two Polyart Ultrametal Dual-Sided substrates – a 125 GSM and a 360 GSM version – for use on Ricoh Pro C7200 series presses. Discussing the certification, Richard Ainge, Color-Logic chief technical officer and co-founder, said, “The surface of the Polyart Ultrametal Silver substrate is unique in that the metallic effect is created by embedding specialized metallic pigments in the coating. This coating offers a matte, non-conductive surface with outstanding printability on the Ricoh press. Polyart – a merger of substrate-makers Arjobex, MDV, Tech Folien and Reisewitz – is rolling out their line of specialty substrates around the world. Polyart film and paper solutions are targeted at the specialty label market (industrial, decorative and security), as well as digital printing and the display market. Two-sided substrates are particularly useful when printing items such as brochures, direct mail pieces, countersigns, business cards, catalogs, book or magazine covers, tickets, and greeting cards that must be seen from either side.

Color-Logic develops color communication systems and software toolsets for a variety of special effect printing applications. Color-Logic provides brand owners, product managers, corporations, and their advertising agencies the ability to differentiate themselves and their clients with a simple print production process that yields dramatic results. Color-Logic decorative effects utilize the existing workflows of printers and designers, yielding dynamic results without the use of special equipment. Color-Logic supports the value of print and works with designers and printers to enhance their printed media.

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.
