Color-Logic Now Available Worldwide

West Chester, Ohio, USA; October 2021— Color-Logic, the software for metallic printing and printing on metallic substrates--is now available around the world. Color-Logic licensees in more than 70 countries offer their customers and brands quick, easy, and foolproof metallic printing. Perhaps more important, major press manufacturers now offer Color-Logic software and training as part of their equipment offerings and customer training. Manufacturers, resellers, and demonstration facilities may be found using a worldwide map on the Color-Logic website at www.color-logic.com/resellers/. Licensed Color-Logic printers may be found at www.color-logic.com/findaprinter/.

Mark Geeves, Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing, discussing the increasing ubiquity of metallic printing in packaging and labels, said: "The popularity of Color-Logic software is evident not just from the number of Color-Logic licensees, but the number and diversity of printer manufacturers incorporating Color-Logic in their sales presentations. Printers never cease to be amazed at the speed at which specialty files such as white ink masks can be prepared using Color-Logic software.

Richard Ainge. Color-Logic CTO, commented further: "In addition to metallic printing software, Color-Logic offers Touch7--a specialty software suite enabling designers and printers to take full advantage of extended gamut products such as those produces using the neon and fluorescent inks available on the latest digital presses. Our mission with both of these software suites is to streamline the design or prepress process while ensuring printers receive reliable, reproducible files they can use with confidence."

Color-Logic Adds 30 New Metallic Gold Colors

West Chester, Ohio, USA; June 2021— Color-Logic—the leader in metallic color communication and print embellishments—has more than doubled the number of metallic gold colors available to Color-Logic licensees. The 30 new metallic gold colors, together with the 25 gold colors previously included with the Color-Logic System, enable licensed Color-Logic printers to provide their clients with 55 unique metallic gold colors by utilizing only one metallic silver ink, toner, or substrate. The 30 new metallic gold colors bring the total number of Color-Logic metallic colors to 280. No longer is it necessary to stock gold inks or substrates, or to match golds using trial and error.

Discussing the issues facing printers using silver or gold in their digital presses (or considering one of the new digital presses offering a fifth-color station for metallic inks or toners) Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing Mark Geeves commented: “Manufacturers of digital presses are beginning to offer silver and gold inks and toners to complement traditional CMYK inks and toners. But without Color-Logic, digital printers are limited to a single gold color, while Color-Logic licensees can offer their customers 55 different gold options. And these golds can not only be used as spot colors in designs, but in the many embellishment options offered by Color-Logic as well. Digital press owners using the Color-Logic System no longer need to waste precious production time swapping out silver ink or toner to run gold."

Regarding the importance of the announcement to printers using cut sheet metallic substrate in digital presses, or rolls of metallic substrate in wide format printers, Geeves said: "Color-Logic automatically produces the white ink masks required for printing on metallic substrates. The availability of 55 predictable and reproducible metallic gold colors significantly reduces file preparation time and eliminates frustrating and repetitive on-press color matching.”

Color-Logic licensees may produce their own swatch books, using their substrates, press standards, inks, and coatings. The print embellishments offered by licensed Color-Logic printers enable internal or external graphic designers to dazzle clients with metallic colors. The dramatization and personalization options available with the Color-Logic System provide the most economical and most easily implemented embellishments available to printers.

New Color-Logic Website Feature Compares Printed Designs With and Without Metallic Embellishments

West Chester, Ohio, USA; May 2021— A new section of the Color-Logic website uses several images and applications to illustrate the results of printing both with and without Color-Logic metallic embellishments. The feature--at https://www.color-logic.com/beforeandafter--shows how an image changes when Color-Logic metallic embellishments are added. These effects may be attained using virtually any popular printing process.

Discussing the new feature, Mark Geeves, Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing, said: "The sample files demonstrate the value of print embellishments created with just one additional color on press. On conventional substrate, Color-Logic works with silver ink or toner and CMYK inks or toners. On metallic substrate, the Color-Logic process requires white ink or toner and CMYK inks or toners. The best way to visualize how Color-Logic affects design is to see the metallic image alongside its CMYK equivalent."

Color-Logic Expands Online Training Program

West Chester, Ohio, USA; April 2020— or seven years, Color-Logic has provided licensed Color-Logic printers around the world with web-based training, suitable for their captive designers, external designers, agencies, and brands. Color-Logic developed these training programs for two primary reasons: Time, because print personnel are often too busy during the day to learn new techniques, and thus need an effective means of learning at their own pace, and Location, because with licensed printers in more than 60 countries, the designer could well be in a different city or country, enabling licensed Color-Logic printers to expand markets in any direction.

A unique aspect of the Color-Logic system is that it enables print embellishment at the design stage, since the Adobe Design Suite is consistent in every language, on both Windows and Macintosh platforms. While it remains unclear how design will evolve beyond the COVID-19 outbreak, online training and web based training will remain, which is why Color-Logic has expanding online resources for licensed printers and their captive and external designers. Color-Logic has added Master Class Tutorials for Adobe PhotoShop, Illustrator, and InDesign to provide extensive instruction about how to add embellishments into artwork and make it truly stand out from the competition.

In addition, Color-Logic offers a wide variety of videos for anyone to review, including a recorded live webinar of the entire Color-Logic system. To learn more about the Color-Logic system, log on to www.color-logic.com/support,

In addition, the Color-Logic SMART program provides 100 press-ready metallic marketing files for use in go-to-market campaigns by our licensed printers. Any printer whose renewal came due since February has been informed their enrollment fees will be pushed out until August 2020.

Discussing the program, Color-Logic Sales and Marketing Director Mark Geeves said: "While Color-Logic, like all vendors, needs to maintain cash flow, we felt Color-Logic licensees should be using their cash at this time to pay staff. We greatly appreciate those licensees that have paid despite the amnesty. When the crisis is behind us, print embellishment will be more important than ever, and the tools and images in the SMART program will enable printers to be competitive very quickly."

Color-Logic Celebrates Ten Years of Making Metallics Manageable

West Chester, Ohio, USA; June 2019—In early 2009, into the teeth of the most severe recession ever suffered by the printing industry, Color-Logic introduced its Process Metallic Color System--the only graphic design software package that simplifies and standardizes metallic print production, creating foil printing using white ink/toner or silver ink/toner. Since that 2009 introduction, the Color-Logic system has remained affordable and easy for both conventional and digital printers to implement. A key Color-Logic feature links printers with graphic designers and brand managers, making them partners in the successful execution of metallic designs.

Color-Logic was developed by Chief Technology Officer Richard Ainge and Director of Sales and Marketing Mark Geeves, both of whom remain active in the company. Today Color-Logic is supported by virtually every digital printing press manufacturer offering white ink/toner or silver ink/toner. Color-Logic has consistently worked with press, substrate, and coating technology partners around the world and has evolved with process and equipment technologies.

After ten years, Color-Logic has installations in more than 50 countries, and in the past three years some 90 percent of Color-Logic sales have occurred outside the United States. In 2019, sales to printers with digital presses are expected for the first time to exceed those to conventional printers. Labels and packaging are particularly strong markets and consistently demonstrate a speedy return on investment in Color-Logic. For printers using any process, Color-Logic offers educational videos and easy-to-follow training that enable designers to quickly understand the technology and use it to produce metallic files that are consistently reproducible without seemingly endless trial-and-error.
