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.
