Color-Logic, the leader in metallic colors systems and print embellishment, has announced the release of Pattern-FX Volume 6. Commenting on the event, Color-Logic director of sales and marketing Mark Geeves said, “In recent years, patterns have become a key element of graphic design. Color-Logic Pattern-FX volumes are illustrator palettes that incorporate the Color-Logic special effects and make pattern usage effortless, predictable, and reproducible.” 

“They can be rotated and scaled, and since Color-Logic colors can be gradated, two or more colors can be used within one pattern. When using the six Pattern-FX volumes and the 924 metallic colors together in the Color-Logic Design Suite, graphic designers have access to 665,290 predictable and reproducible embellishment patterns with just a few mouse clicks. However, with scaling and rotation, the number of print embellishments is unlimited. In addition, with Color-Logic Gradation-FX, graphic designers can blend metallic colors into other metallic colors for each pattern or blend process colors into metallic colors for use on conventional or digital presses,” he continued.

Geeves concluded, “At Color-Logic, we believe with ‘All Print Stars With Design’, graphic designers have Color-Logic tools and understand what is possible with print embellishment. As a result, they will increase the use of value-added print. Using Color-Logic enables graphic designers to produce all colors and embellishments with just five inks – silver ink or toner with CMYK on paper, or white ink or toner with CMYK on the reflective stock. Color-Logic makes print embellishment not only predictable but economical for production.”

The company develops color communication systems and software toolsets for various special effect printing applications. It 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. Its decorative effects utilize the existing workflows of printers and designers, yielding dynamic results without special equipment. It also supports the value of print and works with designers and printers to enhance their printed media.

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.
