Color-Logic Relaunches 202One Program for Licensed Printers

West Chester, Ohio, USA; October 2020— Color-Logic, the world leader in software for print embellishment, has announced their 202One relaunch program for licensed printers enrolled in the Color-Logic SMART Centre Program (Software, Marketing, Artwork, Resources, Training).

Discussing the Relaunch program, Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing Mark Geeves, said: "When the COVID-19 Outbreak began, Color-Logic immediately focused on what printers would need when markets began reopening. The Color-Logic customer base is global and we serve markets ranging from packaging and label, commercial print, point-of-purchase, signage, and direct mail. Our diverse customer base means we must consider geographic location and target markets when seeking to support our clients. Accordingly, we broke our Relaunch 202One program into 3 stages--much like the May 2020 Spacex launch. The Color-Logic Relaunch is not just about getting off the ground, but about getting where you want to go and the ability to land on target. At Color-Logic, we seek to help our clients not just in 2020, but in 2021, when it will be necessary to reach out to new clients and to reengage current clients.

"Stage 1 of the Color-Logic 202One Relaunch is the ignition stage, and features improved training for graphic designers and prepress personnel. The Color-Logic motto:
All Print Starts With Design. speaks to the fact that our core focus is to develop design tools permitting any graphic designer to enhance their designs with the Color-Logic embellishments and metallic color system. While COVID-19 continues, the Color-Logic self-paced online training videos and our new master class videos show our licensees how to work effectively with agencies, graphic designers, and brands around the world.

"Stage 2 of the Color-Logic 202One Relaunch is our booster stage, and focuses on content. Since potential customers cannot know what is possible in print without seeing actual samples, Color-Logic has 35 new designs. Thus licensed printers now have 100 press-ready marketing files for virtually every application we support. Before COVID-19, most printers had neither the time nor resources to create their own marketing files, so this part of our license provides the door opener necessary to reach out to prospects with physical samples.

"Stage 3 of the Color-Logic 202One Relaunch is our Payload stage. Color-Logic now provides licensed printers enrolled in our SMART Program with a free Color-Logic Design Suite, FX-Viewer, and Pattern-FX single seat license valued at US$1050. This software package may be given by a Color-Logic licensee to an external client, which makes it much easier for the licensee to land a new account, agency, brand, or graphic designer and drive more business to their press.

"Although 2020 has been a worldwide challenge, print is not about to vanish. Surviving in the new environment, however, means pivoting, reopening, restructuring, or relaunching. The need to differentiate and to stand out will not vanish, and the technologies available today makes the Color-Logic staff optimistic about our future and our ability to deliver our clients the software, training, education, and consulting to make a difference in the print marketplace."

Chongolove Chooses Color-Logic, Combines Print and Video for Marketing Impact

West Chester, Ohio, USA; September 2020— Chongolove, a new company offering a free app enabling users to make and deliver custom videos, chose Color-Logic metallic embellishments to enhance their product. Chongolove buyers, after downloading the Chongolove app, scan a Chongolove sticker with their smartphone and use the app to record a video targeted at a specific friend or relative. The Chongolove sticker then may be attached to a greeting card, postcard, or gift. Upon receipt, the sticker recipient can scan the sticker and view the custom video. Chongolove stickers are sold on the Amazon website in sets of three for less than US$7; the app is free.

Armand Dieng, Chongolove Founder/President, discussing the product design, said: "We were looking for a sticker design that would be strikingly different and call attention to our unique video concept. When we visited the HP Indigo Atlanta demonstration center and they suggested Color-Logic metallics, we immediately knew it would literally make our stickers shine. We are now rolling out the Chongolove product, and initial acceptance is great!"

Color-Logic Director of Marketing Mark Geeves, commenting on the product, said: "The Chongolove concept is an excellent example of how print and video can be combined, and how print can help a product like the Chongolove sticker stand out, capture market attention, and facilitate use by consumers. Starting with the basic Chongolove design, the Color-Logic design studio group worked with Armond to add metallic colors and embellishments in the background to make it look three dimensional."
