Color-Logic, the leader in metallic color communication and print embellishments, has more than doubled the number of metallic gold colors available to Color-Logic licensees. The 30 new metallic gold colors, together with the 25 gold colors previously included with the Color-Logic system, enable licensed Color-Logic printers to provide their clients with 55 unique metallic gold colors by utilizing only one metallic silver ink toner or substrate. The 30 new metallic gold colors bring the total number of Color-Logic metallic colors to 280. No longer is it necessary to stock gold inks or substrates or match golds using trial and error.  

Discussing the issues facing printers using silver or gold in their digital presses (or considering one of the new digital presses offering a fifth-color station for metallic inks or toners) company’s Director of Sales and Marketing Mark Geeves commented: “Manufacturers of digital presses are beginning to offer silver and gold inks and toners to complement traditional CMYK inks and toners. But without Color-Logic, digital printers are limited to a single gold color, while Color-Logic licensees can offer their customers 55 different gold options. And these golds can not only be used as spot colors in designs but in the many embellishment options offered by Color-Logic as well. Digital press owners using the Color-Logic System no longer need to waste precious production time swapping out silver ink or toner to run gold.”

Regarding the importance of the announcement to printers using cut sheet metallic substrate in digital presses or rolls of metallic substrate in wide-format printers, Geeves said: “Color-Logic automatically produces the white ink masks required for printing on metallic substrates. The availability of 55 predictable and reproducible metallic gold colors significantly reduces file preparation time and eliminates frustrating and repetitive on-press color matching.”

Metallic gold colors having several advantages for the printing industry

Color-Logic licensees may produce their own swatch books using their substrates, press standards, inks, and coatings. The print embellishments offered by licensed printers enable internal or external graphic designers to dazzle clients with metallic colors. The dramatization and personalization options available with the Color-Logic system provide the most economical and easily implemented embellishments available to printers.

Color-Logic develops color communication systems and software toolsets for a variety of special effect printing applications. It provides brand owners, product managers, corporations, and advertising agencies to differentiate themselves and their clients with a simple print production process that yields dramatic results. 

Its decorative effects utilize the existing workflows of printers and designers, yielding dynamic results without the use of special equipment. It also supports the value of print and works with designers and printers to enhance their printed media. For more information, visit www.color-logic.com or call +1-513-258-0047.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
