SAi Flexi software awarded global certification for Color-Logic’s Process Metallic Color System™

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.

SAi Flexi RIPs and Touch7 Differentiate Brand Signage with Extended Color Gamut Technology


Salt Lake City, USA and Leeds, England - 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; and Touch7, have announced that the Touch7 extended colour gamut system is now fully supported by SAi's Flexi and PhotoPrint RIPs (Version 10.x and higher) for the sign and print markets.

Discussing the certification, Director of Sales & Marketing for Touch7, Mark Geeves comments, "It is well-known that brands utilize signage to engage the consumer with eye catching designs. Now, customers with the SAi RIP can process Touch7 files to make a brand's signage stand out from the competition, by using the full gamut that digital print engines can provide."

"SAi has recently undertaken extensive testing on a variety of digital engines that they support, and the results were excellent," he continues. "Touch7 applies the separations at the design stage using the familiar Adobe Creative Cloud environment, while the final press profile conversion is done within the SAi RIP, resulting in superior quality separations with smooth transitions and tonal blending."

"We are very excited about the Touch7 extended gamut color technology," adds Dean Derhak, Product Director at SAi. "Touch7 dramatically improves color saturation on extended gamut inkjet printers, as well as on standard CMYK wide-format digital inkjet printers. This gives every print-service provider using Touch7 with our Flexi RIP software a noticeable competitive advantage with better eye-popping color compared to those providers not using Touch7."
