Digital foiling and laminating systems manufacturer Vivid Laminating Technologies has partnered with Color-Logic, which develops colour communication systems and software tool sets for a variety of special effect printing applications.
Color-Logic’s suite of colour communication systems and software tools work in conjunction with Adobe’s Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign applications.
This will enable designers to wor with a pallet of 250 metallic foil colours, which can be realized using digital printer and Vivid’s Matrix Digital Foiling & Laminating System and its Aqua Aura silver or rainbow holographic foils.
Color-Logic’s plug-ins and palettes for the Adobe suite are claimed to be easy to work with, and save significant amount of time.
The plug-in for Photoshop can intelligently analyse the levels of colour within a photo to create an image ready to be foiled.
The finished effect can jump out of the page and dramatically enhance print.
The partnership of Vivid and Color-Logic benefits users with two levels of software integration. The standard package can include a full design suite and FX viewer for 1 user and the premium package can allow up to 5 simultaneous users of the design suite & FX viewer, combined with 5 Pattern-FX which can add dimensions to the print.
Vivid product manager Lewis Evans said: "Our new Aqua Aura range of luxury foils are available in over 20 colours. By using the Color-Logic tools, you can now achieve 250 different metallic colours, all from one single roll of foil and with just a click of a button"
Evans said: "We’re able to offer both packages on either a 3 or 5 year lease. Combining the lease cost, printers can have access to our award-winning Matrix digital foiling system and Color-Logic’s incredible metallic print effects starting from just £70 per week."
Color-Logic’s sales and marketing director Mark Geeves said: "Color-Logic is a disruptive technology that adds value to print, whilst differentiating a client's branding.
"Vivid’s expertise in foiling, combined with our innovative colour system, creates exciting new opportunities for printers to grow their high-value print production business, whilst reducing overall stock inventory."
