Color-Logic is marking a decade since the introduction of its Process Metallic Color System.
Color-Logic develops color communication systems and software tool sets for a variety of special effect printing applications. Color-Logic provides brand owners, product managers, corporations, and their advertising agencies the ability to differentiate themselves and their clients with a simple print production process that yields dramatic results. Color-Logic decorative effects utilize the existing workflows of printers and designers, yielding dynamic results without the use of special equipment.
Process Metallic Color System was introduced in 2009 and is claimed as the only graphic design software package that simplifies and standardizes metallic print production, creating foil printing using white ink/toner or silver ink/toner.
A key feature is the linking of printers with graphic designers and brand managers, making them partners in the successful execution of metallic designs.
Color-Logic was developed by the company’s chief technology officer, Richard Ainge, and Mark Geeves, its director of sales and marketing, both of whom remain active in the company. Today, Color-Logic is supported by virtually every digital printing press manufacturer offering white ink/toner or silver ink/toner. Color-Logic has consistently worked with press, substrate, and coating technology partners around the world and has evolved with process and equipment technologies.
A decade on, Color-Logic has installations in more than 50 countries, and in the past three years some 90 percent of Color-Logic sales have occurred outside the US. In 2019, sales to printers with digital presses are expected for the first time to exceed those to conventional printers. Labels and packaging are particularly strong markets for the technology.
