As printers around the world continue to add digital presses and printers to their stables of printing solutions, Color-Logic stands out as the odds-on choice for metallics. More than 70 digital press and printer models using metallic and white inks or toners to print on paper or white inks or toners to print on a metallic substrate have been certified by Color-Logic. Buyers of these machines can be confident their purchases can take complete advantage of all 924 metallic hues and embellishments.
Commenting on its certification program, Mark Geeves, the company’s director of Sales and Marketing, said, “On the Color-Logic website, we maintain a list of press and printer manufacturer partners that enables potential digital press and printer buyers to determine whether the company has certified the machine they may be considering. Digital press and printer manufacturers with Color-Logic-certified models include Agfa, Canon, Domino, Durst, and EFI. Fujifilm, Gallus, HP Inidgo, Heidelberg, Konica-Minolta, Mark Andy, Mimaki, Mutoh, Nilpeter, Roland DG, Ricoh, Screen, swissQprint, Xeikon, and Xerox. The fact that virtually every digital press and printer manufacturer chooses to work with Color-Logic signals the widespread acceptance and need for its software to enable successful metallic color communication and the creation of print embellishments.”
Color-Logic to produce metallic embellishments for 924 metallic hues
Geeves continued, “Most certification processes in the print industry focus on quality, reproducibility, and repeatability, all very important to our process. Unlike other certifications, however, the Color-Logic certification is about the ability of the printer or press based on the substrate, inks and coatings used, as well as press conditions to produce metallic embellishments for the 924 Color-Logic metallic hues.”
“We focus on how to differentiate print, our color charts and test form, consisting of three 12-inch by 18-inch sheets or 10 feet of a web roll of paper, seek to demonstrate to brands, agencies, and printers what can be done at the design stage using the Color-Logic plug-ins and palettes for Adobe Creative Cloud. The world today is about differentiation and personalization. Our efforts with our press and printer manufacturer partners are focused on helping our printer customers achieve differentiation and personalization for their brand clients in significantly less time and with less pressroom waste than is possible without Color-Logic today.”
