Fujifilm recently announced an agreement with Color-Logic to sell its solution for producing metallic effects, using either digital toner or analog printing processes.

On 25 May 2022, Fujifilm announced an agreement with Color-Logic to sell its solution for producing metallic effects, using either digital toner or analog printing processes. Whether using silver ink or toner on a white substrate, or printing with white ink or toner on a metallic substrate, the Color-Logic System is the world’s first color communication system that takes into account the printing device, inks, press profile, and coatings unique to the printer. At the same time, it also provides designers, brands, printers, and convertors with an accurate color communication and print embellishment system to work from. 

The agreement follows the certification of the new Fujifilm Revoria Press PC1120 for the printing of Color-Logic metallic colors and embellishments. Fujifilm’s Revoria Press PC1120 is fully certified to print using the Color-Logic system for metallic colors and embellishments, whether using silver ink with CMYK on paper; or white ink with CMYK on metallic stock.

Richard Ainge, Color-Logic CTO and a founder of the company said, “The color gamut and print quality of the press was excellent. Color-Logic is delighted to partner with Fujifilm to bring print embellishment to its clients.” 

Fujifilm will also be making the Color-Logic system available with other Fujifilm print and packaging technologies – both analog and digital. Manuel Schrutt, head of Packaging, Fujifilm EMEA comments, “Fujifilm offset, flexo, and digital technologies already enable customers to print a wide range of striking metallic effects – either through the use of metallic inks or by using white inks on metallic substrates. But with the Color-Logic System, customers can now also create a pre-defined palette of metallic colors that can be installed into Adobe design apps. They then have the ability to print these palettes as color charts or swatch books, on their own press, to then give to their clients. This enables a 100% reliable color communication system for metallics which runs from the design stage of the process through to the printing itself.

“We’re delighted to be working with the clear technology leader in this field and providing out customers with yet more flexibility and opportunity.”

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.
