SAi Flexi software awarded global certification for Color-Logic’s Process Metallic Color System™ – Accreditation represents accelerated productivity, higher-quality output and reduced production costs for users
Salt Lake City, Utah, USA – 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, has announced that its industry-leading Flexi software has been fully certified by leading color communication systems manufacturer, Color-Logic, for use with its Process Metallic Color System™ for the wide format and sign markets.
As Color-Logic’s flagship product, Process Metallic Color System™ allows users to easily incorporate complex metallic colors into wide format prints. With the certification of SAi Flexi 11 and 12 for use with all metallic-capable inkjet printers, print providers can produce a host of applications, including posters, billboards and premium signage. This represents a haul of benefits, in particular the assurance of accelerated productivity, higher-quality output and reduced production costs by reducing mistakes.
“Typically, workflows are constrained to CMYK, making the preparation of a metallic job quite laborious,” explains Dean Derhak, Product Marketing Director at SAi. “Thanks to the partnership, customers can seamlessly allocate the metallic components early in the design phase using Process Metallic Color System™ with the confidence that Flexi will accurately output this to the printer.”
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.
“The capability to extend their business offering to include specialist, attention-grabbing prints enables print service providers to elevate existing projects to new heights and differentiate their service offering from the competition,” says Derhak. “In doing so, users strengthen their ability to retain existing clients as well as maintain their competitive edge.”
This latest certification by Color-Logic follows the recent accreditation of SAi’s Flexi and PhotoPrint RIP software with Color-Logic’s Touch7 extended colour gamut system.
