According to Color-Logic co-founder and Chief Technical Officer Richard Ainge, producing metallic colours and variable embellishments on metallic substrates requires a separate white ink mask for each unique page. Color-Logic produces these automatically.
The company recently announced that licenced Color-Logic printers with HP Indigo cut sheet and digital label presses can now use their HP Mosaic software with Color-Logic Pattern-FX to automatically generate the white ink masks required to do variable data printing on metallic substrates.
‘At Color-Logic, we believe that all print starts with design, and we have expanded the capability of HP Mosaic to permit using white ink on a metallic substrate not only to produce metallic colours but also for print embellishments and variable data work,’ said Ainge. He added that licenced Color-Logic printers can find detailed instructions for using Color-Logic with HP Mosaic inside the Color-Logic S.M.A.R.T Centre.
