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.
