Color-Logic and Proofing Technologies have collaborated to streamline prototyping or proofing of metallic flexible packaging. Color-Logic has certified JetComp 2 mil Silver Metallised Polypropylene film for use with its Process Metallic Colour System.
By using the Color-Logic process and printing with an Epson, Mimaki, or Roland solvent wide-format printer, packaging designers can immediately see the effects of the Color-Logic system.
Discussing the process, Color-Logic Chief Technical Officer Richard Ainge commented, ‘Prototyping metallic flexible packages was difficult and unpredictable until Color-Logic and JetComp collaborated to simplify and standardise the process. Color-Logic files may now be printed on JetComp metallised film using widely available wide-format printers to proof and produce short runs of new flexible packages.’
Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing Mark Geeves added, ‘Designs for printing on metallised films require complex white ink masks. The complex masks can be generated with just a click of the mouse using Color-Logic software, rather than the hours often required when creating the masks manually within Adobe Creative Suite. Our user-friendly Illustrator and Photoshop plugins enable graphic designers to produce dramatic effects and achieve greater shelf impact by using the metallic substrate with white, cyan, magenta, yellow, and black inks within the design. Our collaboration with JetComp and their metallised films enables prototyping to be done in a fraction of the time and cost associated with traditional methods being used today.’
With the Color-Logic Process Metallic Colour System, brand managers, product managers, corporations, and advertising agencies can differentiate themselves and their clients from the competition. Color-Logic tools simplify design and print production, creating eye-catching decorative effects for use on branded product packaging and associated collateral.
The Color-Logic system is compatible with offset, inkjet, flexography, digital presses, screen printing, and gravure. It is ideal for packaging, pouches, direct mail, point-of-purchase material, signage, postcards, literature, booklets, labels, shrink sleeves, calendars and much more.
