West Chester, Ohio, USA; January 2023—Color-Logic--the leader in metallic colors systems and print embellishment--has announced the release of Pattern-FX Volume 7. Commenting on the event, Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing Mark Geeves said: "Patterns have become a key element of graphic design in recent years. Color-Logic Pattern-FX volumes are illustrator palettes which incorporate the Color-Logic special effects and make pattern usage effortless, predictable, and reproducible. The patterns can be rotated and scaled, and since Color-Logic colors can ge gradated, two or more colors can be used within one pattern. When using the seven Pattern-FX volumes together with the 924 metallic colors in the Color-Logic Design Suite, graphic designers have access to 776,160 predictable and reproducible embellishment patterns with just a few mouse clicks, although with scaling and rotation, the true number of print embellishments is essentially unlimited. In addition, with Color-Logic Gradation-FX, graphic designers can blend metallic colors into other metallic colors for each pattern or blend process colors into metallic colors for use on conventional or digital presses."

“Geeves continued: "At Color-Logic, we believe "
All Print Stars With Design." Once graphic designers have Color-Logic tools and understand what is possible with print embellishment, they will increase the use of value added print . Using Color-Logic enables graphic designers to produce all colors and embellishments with just five inks: silver ink or toner with CMYK on paper, or white ink or toner with CMYK on reflective stock. Color-Logic makes print embellishment not only predictable but economical for production."
