New Color-Logic Videos Detail Anti-Counterfeiting Techniques for Brands Using Digital Print

West Chester, Ohio, USA; May 2017—Color-Logic--the leader in metallic color communication and decorative effects--has released two new videos showing how designers can create anti-counterfeiting effects when using digital. Discussing the technique, Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing Mark Geeves commented: "The Color-Logic technology has always enabled brands to impart the WOW factor to their products, as well as provide brands with quicker time-to-market and more economical press runs. Now, Color-Logic enables brands of all sizes to implement a first level of security using white and CMYK ink sets on digital presses." Richard Ainge, Color-Logic CTO, added: "Color-Logic variable metallic data executed on a digital press can provide brands of all sizes with not only personalization, but a first level of anti-counterfeiting security as well. Color-Logic design tools, together with commonly used variable data tools like XMPie or HP Smart Stream Designer, easily provides brands with basic anti-counterfeiting features. The Color-Logic system eliminates the need for white ink masks, so every label, carton, shrink sleeve, coupon, or other marketing piece printed on a reflective substrate can include variable metallic features."

The two anti-counterfeiting videos are available on the Color-Logic website at

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.

iC3D and Color-Logic Take Prototyping to New Dimensions for Labels and Packaging

West Chester, Ohio, USA; January 2017—Color-Logic has announced the support of their Process Metallic Color System by iC3D from Creative Edge Software for prototyping labels and packaging. Discussing the certification, Color-Logic CTO Richard Ainge commented: "The Color-Logic Design Suite (plug-ins and palettes for Adobe) was developed to enable designers to create decorative effects at a fraction of the time required to do so manually. Because time to market is a critical factor in the packaging and label market today, with Color-Logic and the iC3D software Brands, designers and prepress personnel can visualize the Color-Logic effects on the package or labels across a broad spectrum of environments or on a wide variety of metallic stocks before going to proofing and then production. The two technologies save brands a huge amount of time and cost in getting to market faster."

Creative Edge Software's award-winning iC3D is the first all-in-one software for generating high-quality, 3D photorealistic packaging mockups in real-time, at the speed of imagination. "Users are able to visualize their ideas and truly experience their designs, allowing brand owners to increase the effectiveness and impact of their packaging before ever going to print," explains Trevor Haworth, Managing Partner at Creative Edge Software.
