January 2023, US based Color-Logic a leader in metallic colors systems and print embellishment, has announced the release of Pattern-FX Volume 7. Commenting on the event, Color-Logic director of Sales and Marketing Mark Geeves said, “Patterns have become a key element of graphic design in recent years. Color-Logic Pattern-FX volumes are illustrator palettes which incorporate the Color-Logic special effects and make pattern usage effortless, predictable, and reproducible.
The patterns can be rotated and scaled, and since Color-Logic colors can ge gradated, two or more colors can be used within one pattern. When using the seven Pattern-FX volumes together with the 924 metallic colors in the Color-Logic Design Suite, graphic designers have access to 776,160 predictable and reproducible embellishment patterns with just a few mouse clicks, although with scaling and rotation, the true number of print embellishments is essentially 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.”
Geeves continued, “At Color-Logic, we believe ‘All print starts with design.’ Once graphic designers have Color-Logic tools and understand what is possible with print embellishment, they will increase the use of value added print. These tools enable 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 reflective stock. Color-Logic makes print embellishment not only predictable but economical for production.”
