Color-Logic and Vivid Laminating Technologies Bring Economical Digital Foiling to Every Digital Printer

West Chester, Ohio, USA; June 2017—Color-Logic--the leader in metallic color communication and decorative effects--has partnered with Vivid Laminating Technologies--the leading European manufacturer of laminating equipment. As a result of the partnership, any color digital printer can now produce 250 different metallic colors from a single roll of foil, using the Color-Logic Design Suite and the award-winning Vivid Matrix Digital Foiling and Laminating System. Vivid offers both silver and rainbow holographic foils for this purpose.

Discussing the technique, Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing Mark Geeves commented: "The partnership of Color-Logic and Vivid Laminating Technologies enables any CMYK digital printer to produce 250 different metallic foil hues and gradations with their existing inks and toners. The attention-commanding brilliance of conventional cold foil is enhanced by the many Color-Logic special effects available to designers, and the simplicity of the Vivid system makes digital foiling available to anyone with a digital printer. The key benefit of the Color-Logic and Vivid partnership lies in the ability of printers to produce higher margin products with their current equipment, as well as attracting profitable new customers."

Vivid Laminating Technologies was voted 2016 Supplier of the Year by the British Association for Print and Communication. Vivid is the leading European designer and manufacturer of digital foiling and laminating systems, supplying to the printing industry for more than 30 years, and exporting to more than 50 countries worldwide.

The more streamlined design-to-print process allows wide format print providers to dramatically reduce the time-consuming manual steps required, crucially accelerating their turnaround time.

Enhanced competitive edge through extended applications offering

In addition to an optimized workflow, the ability to offer premium metallic print applications enables companies to differentiate their signage and stand-out from the crowd.

Color-Logic showcases unique method for variable data metallic print, available for HP Indigo Digital Presses

West Chester, Ohio, USA; April 2016—Color Logic, the leader in decorative and reflective color communications systems, has introduced a new method for efficient and flexible variable data printing in metallic colors on metallic substrates. The method leverages the combined capabilities of Color Logic’s Process Metallic Color System™ and HP Indigo Digital Presses, providing a unique advantage for HP Indigo users.

The demand for personalization and localization in packaging and labels continues to grow at a rapid rate, with brands needing to better address their target markets, increase the security of their products, and meet the growing demand for more SKUs.

A recently released movie by Color-Logic demonstrates how brands can leverage HP Indigo Digital Presses with white ink and the Color-Logic software to enhance their high-end packaging with personalized messages and versioning. The short clip shows how to add variable content to metallic text, metallic sequential numbering, and even metallic images, across a multitude of print applications.

“The innovation behind this world-first lies in Color-Logic’s unique way of generating white ink plates,” said Richard Ainge, Color-Logic’s CTO. “Previously, archaic methods of generating a white ink plate, such as with manual image processing and masking, meant that VDP could not be done in metallic, since each VDP element would require a unique white ink mask.

“In the past, a job with 10,000 VDP names to be added in would require 10,000 individual white ink masks. Now, with Color-Logic, those white ink masks are automatically generated in the RIP as the file is processed. This makes the whole process far more efficient and flexible, ensuring VDP content can be made metallic, in any one of the 250 metallic colors offered by our system.”

Gershon Alon, WW Manager, Workflow Solutions at HP Indigo, added: “HP Indigo white ink and CMYK, combined with the Color-Logic software on metallic or pearl substrates provide brands with the benefits of variable data printing, while conveying the luxury associated with metallic. This is a real differentiator in the world of digital print and is available with the use of HP Indigo and Color-Logic technology.”
