Intertype becomes 1st Certified Xerox 1000i Printer with Color-Logic (click for more information)
West Chester, Ohio, USA; February 2016—Intertype based in Australia, has become the first certified Color-Logic printer in the world for the Xerox Color 1000i Press using the Xerox®EX-P 1000i printer server powered by Fiery®. Commenting on the development, Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing, Mark Geeves said: “In my first conversation with Ian Bosler, CEO of Intertype, I could tell that Intertype represented the future face of the printing industry by demonstrating what is truly possible with digital. Unlike many printers who are just moving their offset jobs onto digital press platforms, Ian truly understood the value of Xerox Dry Silver Toner combined with Color-Logic’s software, and how it can open up new business opportunities for not only Intertype, but their clients too. In Ian’s own words “standing out and getting noticed is fundamental to creating high performing marketing and sales communications”. “The world today is about differentiation and we look forward in seeing the results Intertype brings to their clients” said Geeves.

Color-Logic Certifies Xerox 800i/1000i Presses (click for more information)
West Chester, OH; October 2015--Color-Logic has certified that the Xerox® Color 800i/1000i Presses, with the silver toner specialty dry ink option and using the Xerox® EX-P 1000i print server powered by Fiery®, fully supports the Color-Logic file formats required to produce the widely used Process Metallic Color System.  Confirming the certification, Color-Logic Chief Technical Officer Richard Ainge commented: "Production sheets from the Xerox Color 1000i press were thoroughly evaluated in the Color-Logic laboratory and found to meet all criteria for certification.  Businesses may purchase these machines with confidence that their customers will have complete access to the striking metallics and special effects available with Color-Logic."
 
Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing Mark Geeves also commented: "Printed sheets from the Xerox Color 1000i Press with the EFI Fiery DFE were shown to attendees at Graph Expo 2015 in Chicago, where the reaction to Color-Logic metallics was very positive.  Color-Logic is pleased to work with Xerox and EFI to bring the Color-Logic process to printers eager to broaden their offerings."
 
Developed for brand managers, product managers, corporations and advertising agencies, the Process Metallic Color System gives licensees the ability to differentiate themselves and their clients from the competition by simplifying the design and print production process and implementing eye-catching decorative effects into their branded products and associated collateral.

We are often asked for references from our existing customers, when someone is looking at purchasing a new press bundled with Color-Logic. Normally printers are very secretive as they don’t wish for their competition to find out about their new investments, or as to how they keep creating amazing metallic prints. However, we have been very lucky that one of our premier printers, Intertype based in Australia, who became the first certified Color-Logic printer in the world for the Xerox Color 1000i Press, has granted us permission to share some of their thoughts…In Ian Bosler’s own words “standing out and getting noticed is fundamental to creating high performing marketing and sales communications” – Please read on for more insights…

How is the registration on the ColorPress using Color-Logic?

When "over printed" i.e. printed in one pass there are no registration issues however this limits creativity and doesn't allow access to the amazing new range of colours.

Under-printing requires two passes and you need to be careful with registration. The biggest area to focus on is the design which can hide or accentuate registration issues.

How does Intertype use Color-Logic meaning how is it sold to your customers?

We've found that customers nowadays struggle with designing for print let alone adding the complexity of designing with Color-Logic (a sad reflection of the skills of Australia's graphic designers). This has led to us creating a new service we call Collaborative Artwork http://www.intertype.com.au/finished-artwork-services/

This service is important to generating metallic clicks and has rapidly become a nice little earner outside of metallic printing as well.

What kind of value do your customers see in CMYK + Silver + Color-Logic prints versus CMYK prints?

Australian marketers aren't very sophisticated when it comes to measuring ROI of marketing campaigns so I don't have access to the value in terms of dollars however they love the special effects and the chance to stand out from the crowd

My customer would like to see same account growth meaning charging more for print based on the value they’re able to offer using the ColorPress and Color-Logic. Have you experienced growth with existing clients using the ColorPress and Color-Logic? Are you charging more to your customers because of the value Color-Logic brings to your clients?

We earn more from clients by providing collaborative artwork services. We charge $135 per hour and typically bill a minimum 2 hours per simple job and our biggest project to date run to over 20 hours.

Our customers don't see a "per click charge" as we bundle all our services into a combined per finished unit cost. We typically recover a surcharge of $0.50 to $1 per A4 page when we apply metallics.

Collaborative artwork and metallic printing capabilities has resulted in additional projects from existing clients as well as attracting new clients. so over all the exercise has been worthwhile financially

What kind of success has intertype experienced in selling and generating additional revenue with new customers using the ColorPress and Color-Logic?

We are getting a worthwhile return on investment and I expect that to grow as it's still early days in our market. We are only seeing "pioneers" and "early adopters" taking on metallics however I expect to see continued growth as more applications get visibility in the market


FINAL WORD… “I strongly suggest that you always bundle Color-Logic with the press. It does make designing much easier and opens up a great array of new and amazing colours”

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
