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!
Video to play at trade shows

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

Color-Logic and Ricoh are Winners at Ricoh Women’s British Open (click for more information)
West Chester, Ohio, USA; February 2016--Color-Logic and Ricoh helped make the 2015 Ricoh Women’s British Open a sparkling success by furnishing VIPs with keycard holders and golf ball boxes. The materials were printed on the new Ricoh C7100 press with white toner, using files prepared by the Color-Logic Brand Services Group.

Discussing the collaboration between Color-Logic and Ricoh, Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing Mark Geeves commented: “For the tournament items, Color-Logic prepared designs using solid metallic colors chosen from the Color-Logic swatch book, as well as metallic gradations and patterns using the new Color-Logic Pattern-FX feature. The effort produced shimmering golf ball boxes and keycard holders that use complex white ink separations generated at the RIP stage in a Color-Logic certified EFI Fiery controller. The golf ball boxes and keycard holders were printed on a Ricoh C7100 press, using white and CMYK toners.”

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
click here.
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 (CMYK plus Orange / Green / Blue etc), with the resulting separations increasing the colour gamut of your print engine, making it an ideal solution for the Ricoh Latex device, but also adds extra pop to your CMYK engines!
Color-Logic is the exclusive distributor of Touch7.
