Color-Logic Certifies Epson Printer As Effect-Proof Partner for Flexo and Packaging

Posted: October 20, 2010

Color-Logic has certified the Epson Stylus Pro WT7900® printer as an Effect-Proof™ Partner for use with their Process Metallic Color System™. Color-Logic director of operations and eCommerce Dave Bowden, comments: “A key element in the success of any color process system is a consistent, reliable proofing device. Color-Logic certification tests clearly demonstrated that the Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 is such a device, and its ability to proof on both metallic and clear substrates makes it ideal for designs destined for label and packaging applications.”
The Process Metallic Color System by Color-Logic utilizes a silver ink plus a conventional CMYK ink set to produce hundreds of metallic hues. With a metallic substrate, the substrate—rather than a silver ink—is used to achieve the effect. With metallic substrate, a white ink must be laid down where the metallic effect is not desired in the printed image. The Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 combined with Epson UltraChrome® White Ink technology and Epson MetallicProof™ Film enables the designer and printer to use white ink in conjunction with CMYK process colors on a silver metallic base, and thus is particularly well suited for proofing Color-Logic designs. The Epson technology works extremely effectively on metallic as well as Epson ClearProof™ Film, eliminating issues often present with other proofers used in packaging design and package proofing applications.
Color-Logic™ develops color communication systems and software tool sets for a variety of special effect printing applications. Color-Logic special effects utilize the existing workflows of printers and designers, yielding dynamic results without the use of special equipment. For more, visit www.color-logic.com.
