Color-Logic Certifies Kernow Substrate for HP Indigo Sheetfed Presses

West Chester, Ohio, USA; June 2019—Color-Logic has certified KernowPrint Metalik substrate for use with the Color-Logic process on HP Indigo sheetfed presses. Color-Logic CTO and Co-Founder Richard Ainge, confirming the certification, commented: "Tests of the KernowPrint Metalik substrate with the Color-Logic process on HP sheetfed presses demonstrated a complete range of metallic colors and excellent reproduction of Color-Logic decorative effects. A major benefit to printers is the Kernow Cobalt Coating Technology™, which reduces static when feeding the sheets into the press."

Color-Logic Presents at Nilpeter Panorama Open House

West Chester, Ohio, USA; June 2019—At the Nilpeter open house in Cincinnati, Ohio, in early June, Color-Logic metallics were featured as an enabling technology with the Nilpeter Panorama press. Mark Geeves, Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing, demonstrated Color-Logic decorative effects and embellishments to the attendees, emphasizing the Color-Logic catchphrase: All Print Starts With Design.

According to Geeves, "The Nilpeter Panorama press provides a foundation for many exciting new applications and embellishments, and the Color-Logic design toolset enables graphic designers to quickly and accurately prepare files for both the digital and hybrid versions of the Nilpeter Panorama press."

At the event, Color-Logic printed and distributed samples using the Panorama Press white and CMYK inks on a metallic stock. Attendees were amazed at the results, which create significant marketing opportunities for brands. Color-Logic provides training videos which enable graphic designers to begin applying the metallic printing design tools immediately, for applications on metallic substrates or using silver ink on conventional substrates.

Color-Logic Donates Touch7 Photo Software to Ryerson University

West Chester, Ohio, USA; June 2019—Color Logic has donated more than 150 copies of their Touch7 Photo ECG software to Toronto-based Ryerson University, for use in the School of Graphic Communications Management color management curriculum. Discussing the donation, Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing Mark Geeves said: "The Ryerson graphic communications management program provides students with hands-on workshops and real-world workflow and color management experience. Offset and flexographic press manufacturers, as well as those producing digital presses, now offer Extended Color Management inksets, and printers are beginning to offer them to clients. Experience with the Touch7 Photo ECG software will enable Ryerson graduates to step immediately into technology positions in the packaging and commercial printing industry."

Ryerson Graphic Communications Management Assistant Professor Christopher Smyth also commented on the donation: "Color-Logic's generous support provides Ryerson students with an excellent opportunity to develop hands-on knowledge and creativity with extended color gamut projects. Touch7 has a clear, user-friendly interface which, together with the ability to adjust and custom the results, makes it an excellent approach to projects using fixed inksets."

Color-Logic Chief Technical Officer Richard Ainge--co-founder of Color-Logic and developer of Touch7--also commenting on the donation, said: "Touch7 Photo ECG software enables graphic designers and prepress personnel to incorporate Extended Color Gamut ink sets into their images with a single mouse click within Adobe Photoshop. Unlike other Extended Color Gamut systems that use destination/press profiles to separate images, the Touch7 Photo ECG plugin works intelligently at the pixel level, automatically isolating and separating the desired touch plates for Extended Color Gamut printing. The final conversion adds as many as three additional spot colors to the designer's original image format. Touch7 Photo ECG does not require ICC profiles to extract Extended Color Gamut separations--the proprietary separation algorithms calculate the effect based on the original source information."

The Ryerson University School of Graphic Communications Management in Toronto offers the only four-year degree program in Canada that is focused on the printing and graphic communications industries. With a mixture of technical and business courses, as well as a focus on engagement with the industry, Ryerson students graduate with the necessary expertise to facilitate consumer product packaging, marketing materials, signage, and print media across Canada and around the world.

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.
