Only print white ink where you need it!

This video demonstrates how to ensure that you don’t print white ink in areas that are not needed. Remember the theory…What you see in SILVER on the screen, is where the silver substrate will be! By putting a block of silver behind your design, it will ensure you don’t print white ink there!

The Color-Logic Trade Show video is a short movie that explains what Color-Logic is, how you design with the palettes and plugins, as well as how to visualise your designs on screen before going to proof or press, using FX-Viewer

Create unlimited effects, using the Color-Logic Design Suite™
Color-Logic metallics and special effects are produced with only five inks: CMYK plus silver ink or CMYK plus white ink when printing on metallic substrates. When designing for foil or reflective substrates, the Color-Logic process eliminates the need to create awkward and time-consuming white ink masks! (Color-Logic Design Suite is available for Macintosh & Windows)

Using the Color-Logic Design Suite you can create 250 new metallic colors, Dimensional-FX™, Watermark-FX™, Watermark-FX Plus™, Gradation-FX™ and Image-FX™ using one intuitive system – All effects are created at the design stage, often eliminating the need for post-press finishing previously required to create the same or similar effect. The visual below shows each of the above mentioned effects.

Image-FX Plug-in
Photorealistic image separation algorithm which analyzes images and calculates the required metallic effect for the different tonal regions of the image.

FX-Viewer™

The Color-Logic FX-Viewer software enables graphic designers, agencies, and printers to visualize the dramatic Color-Logic effects on their monitors before proofing or going to press. The simple and easy-to-learn user interface provides customers with a powerful tool for visualizing the impact Color-Logic provides to their printing.

Choose to visualize your designs for either silver ink printing, or white ink for printing on metallic substrate.

(FX-Viewer is available for Mac only, for system requirements go here)

Printers License

Color-Logic is the only commercially available color communication system for metallic substrates and metallic inks which takes into account the substrate, inks, press curves and coatings.

The Color-Logic system provides a color communication system for 250 new metallic colors, which in turn can producing eye catching decorative effects. Printers and converters are granted a license to produce their own Swatch Books (or Color Charts). This eliminates the need to match a generic purchased swatch book of metallic colors, printed under unknown conditions and generally with substrates and inks not applicable to the printing process of the printer!

Each color in the swatch book is replicated in to a digital swatch library that is imported in to the designers software (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign etc), along with a Photoshop plug-in that calculates the desired metallic effect for imagery. A designer then uses these palettes and plugins to design with, choosing metallic colors from the printers very own printed swatch book. Files designed with the Color-Logic system can then be visualized using the FX-Viewer software. For more information on the Color-Logic Design Suite, please

Licensing Options

Color-Logic Printer Licenses are available in three modules; Standard, Premium and Premium Plus.

A Standard Printer License is ideal for a small print shop or convertor that only needs to print and manufacture supplied files designed using Color-Logic. A Standard license also comes with one Design Suite & FX-Viewer, which enables the printer to convert designs in-house on behalf of their clients/designers. Additional single seat installs of the Design Suites & FX-Viewers are available for purchase.

The Premium and Premium Plus license modules are designed for the larger print shops that work at the brand or design level – each of the premium licenses comes with additional Design Suite & FX-Viewer CDs (Single Seat installs) that may be sold to designers. As an example, if a printer were to purchase the Premium Plus license, they would get ten copies of the Design Suite & FX-Viewer, which may be resold to designers for $599 per suite – this means that the printer can recoup $5999 back off the initial investment should all ten Design Suites be sold.

The chart below highlights the main differences between each printer license, however if you would like to discuss licensing options with one of our representatives, please contact sales@color-logic.com

IMPORTANT: Touch7 is NOT a metallic printing technology
Touch7 is an Extended Colour Gamut System for ECG inks (Orange, green violet etc) as well as Neon Fluorescent inks, with the resulting separations increasing the colour gamut of your print engine.
Color-Logic is the exclusive distributor of Touch7.
