Color-Logic extends metallic gold range

Color-Logic, which has developed a licensed system for communicating metallic print values, has now added 30 new metallic gold colours to go with the 25 already available to licensed Color-Logic printers. It gives printers the option to produce 55 unique metallic gold colours from a single metallic silver ink, toner, or substrate. 

Color-logic has added 30 new gold metallics to its system.

Licensees can produce their own swatch books, using their substrates, press standards, inks, and coatings to help graphic designers work with metallic colours. Color-Logic claims that its system offers printers economical and easy way of producing such embellishments.

Mark Geeves, director of Sales and Marketing, 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.”

The system can also be used to produce effects using using cut sheet metallic substrate in digital presses, or rolls of metallic substrate in wide format printers. Geeves explained: “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.”
