Most embellishment questions posed by Color-Logic users involve how to use Color-Logic in conjunction with third-party applications or within Adobe Creative Cloud. The Color-Logic SMART Centre, available to licenced Color-Logic printers and their graphic designers, now includes extensive videos with answers to embellishment questions posed by Color-Logic users.
Commenting on the Color-Logic Tips and Tricks feature, Richard Ainge, Color-Logic Chief Technical Officer said, ‘The Color-Logic Tips and Tricks section offers graphic designers solutions to specific embellishment issues that have plagued Color-Logic users. Each video details how to get the best out of Color-Logic designs and what to avoid when preparing files. Some videos focus on creating embellishments within Color-Logic, while others detail how to modify clients’ designs for maximum embellishment effect.’
Ainge continued, ‘Applications and topics currently available include: How to Use Color-Logic Image-FX to Enhance File Security; Creating Metallic Variable Data Printing within Adobe InDesign and Illustrator; Applying Gradients to Color-Logic Pattern-FX files; Combining Color-Logic with HP Mosaic; and Embellishment Differences between Digital and Conventional Printing. Regrettably, many graphic design curricula do not emphasise embellishment training, so Color-Logic is filling this void. The Color-Logic team of dedicated professionals consists of skilled prepress and graphic design professionals, all in their second decade in the field of metallic colour separations.’
