West Chester, Ohio, USA; October 2022—Color-Logic has announced that Wallace Carlson Printing in suburban Minneapolis, Minnesota, is the first Color-Logic certified offset printer for cold foil. The certification was done with Wallace Carlson's new Vinfoil Optima cold transfer foiling unit on its new Komori GLX640 ADVANCE press. Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing Mark Geeves, announcing the certification said: "By adding a Vinfoil Optima cold transfer foiling unit to the press and incorporating the Color-Logic metallic color system, Wallace Carlson now has the capability to produce the full range of 924 Color-Logic metallic colors plus our embellishments for their packaging clients. This expands our 2018 Wallace Carlson certification, in which the company used Color-Logic with silver ink and CMYK, and white ink and CMYK on metallic stocks, to differentiate their brand clients."

Discussing the new capability, Wallace Carlson COO Charlie Cox commented: "Using the Color-Logic process on our Komori press lets Wallace Carson demonstrate the full metallic capability we offer customers, with an unlimited number of foil colors and embellishments on our clients' packaging. Moreover, the packaging produced on our press is fully recyclable. For the graphic designers and marketers we serve, we just produced a display binder showing the complete Color-Logic metallic color selection--an incredible tool that makes color selection quick and easy."

Color-Logic Certifies Gallus Labelfire 340 for Cold Foil

West Chester, OH; September 2018—Color-Logic has certified the Gallus Labelfire 340 digital production system for cold foil applications with the Color-Logic process metallic color system. The Gallus press is the first production hybrid label system to be certified for overprinting CMYKGOV inks on cold foil. Confirming the certification, Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing Mark Geeves commented: "The Gallus certification samples utilizing KURZ KPW OP cold foil with the Heidelberg Saphira UV v2 inks provided incredible results. All of the Color-Logic decorative effects were faithfully reproduced, and the tonal range which the Gallus Labelfire was able to print exceeded expectations."

Geeves continued: "The Color-Logic colors produced by combining KURZ foil with the Gallus Labelfire stood out incredibly. A salient feature of the Color-Logic system is that converters produce their own color charts, thus illustrating how the system integrates the substrate, inks and coatings. Brands around the world are sure be impressed with the gamut of colors seen from the Gallus Labelfire on foil."
