CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE ORIGINAL PRESS

Salt Lake City, USA and Leeds, England
- SA International (SAi), the leading provider of software solutions for the professional sign making, wide-format digital printing and CAD/CAM for CNC machining industries; and Touch7, have announced that the Touch7 extended colour gamut system is now fully supported by SAi's Flexi and PhotoPrint RIPs (Version 10.x and higher) for the sign and print markets.

Discussing the certification, Director of Sales & Marketing for Touch7, Mark Geeves comments, "It is well-known that brands utilize signage to engage the consumer with eye catching designs. Now, customers with the SAi RIP can process Touch7 files to make a brand's signage stand out from the competition, by using the full gamut that digital print engines can provide."

"SAi has recently undertaken extensive testing on a variety of digital engines that they support, and the results were excellent," he continues. "Touch7 applies the separations at the design stage using the familiar Adobe Creative Cloud environment, while the final press profile conversion is done within the SAi RIP, resulting in superior quality separations with smooth transitions and tonal blending."

"We are very excited about the Touch7 extended gamut color technology," adds Dean Derhak, Product Director at SAi. "Touch7 dramatically improves color saturation on extended gamut inkjet printers, as well as on standard CMYK wide-format digital inkjet printers. This gives every print-service provider using Touch7 with our Flexi RIP software a noticeable competitive advantage with better eye-popping color compared to those providers not using Touch7."

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.”

Founders of Color-Logic now developing design tools for extended color gamut printing

West Chester, Ohio, USA; April 2016—Touch7 Photo is a new product for extended color gamut printing, that has nothing to do with metallics, but everything to do with color – Let us explain what Touch7 Photo is and what it provides to you and your clients.

Extended Colour Gamut Printing
The developments by ink companies, print engines, RIP manufacturers and ICC profiling tools has been extensive over the past years, however, no one has really focused on the necessity for providing creative tools for designers, so that they can utilize these developments and reduce their cycle time to production. Touch7 was developed as an intuitive system that would help brands utilize ECG printing at a fraction of the time and cost associated with doing manual processing, and without the necessity to send your files through a dedicated colour separation system, therefore opening up ECG printing to even the smallest print shop. The true power of Touch7 lies in it’s automated ECG colour palettes and plug-ins for Adobe CC, ensuring that designers can create artworks in an extended colour gamut, without ever having to leave the familiar creative environment.

Touch7 Photo is a Photoshop plug-in that uses proprietary separation technology to automatically extract out ECG colors from your images, and all at the touch of a button!

KEY BENEFITS

Automatic ECG separation – Extract out only ECG gamut areas from an image.

No more masking – Unless you want to! Skin tones and colors that are easily achievable out of CMYK, are not effected by ECG inks.

Save hours on image processing times compared to a manual masking with simple "One Click" buttons, convert your photographic images in seconds.

Excellent ROI – The time saving on image masking alone, will pay for itself within a few images!
