Fujifilm has agreed to sell Color-Logic’s system for producing metallic effects, using either digital toner or analogue printing processes.
According to the company, whether using silver ink or toner on a white substrate, or printing with white ink or toner on a metallic substrate, the Color-Logic system takes into account the printing device, inks, press profile and coatings unique to the printer. At the same time, it also provides designers, brands, printers and convertors with an accurate color communication and print embellishment system to work from, said Fujifilm.
“Fujifilm offset, flexo and digital technologies already enable customers to print a wide range of striking metallic effects — either through the use of metallic inks or by using white inks on metallic substrates,” said Manuel Schrutt, Head of Packaging, Fujifilm EME. “But with the Color-Logic System, customers can now also create a pre-defined palette of metallic colors that can be installed into Adobe design apps. They then have the ability to print these palettes as color charts or swatch books, on their own press, to then give to their clients. This enables a 100 percent reliable color communication system for metallics which runs from the design stage of the process through to the printing itself.”
