White Ink Masks needed for variable data metallic printing are simplified by Color-Logic and XMPie

Color-Logic- developer of the Process Metallic Color System- has released a new video which shows how the Color-Logic system and XMPie, when used together, permit graphic designers to automatically produce the white ink masks necessary for printing variable information on metallic substrates using digital presses.  Discussing the technique, Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing Mark Geeves commented: "White ink masks for every variable data field are required for printing metallic images, text, vector graphics, or sequential numbers with digital presses on metallic substrate.  Until Color-Logic developed a foolproof technique enabling XMPie to automatically and effortlessly generate them, producing the necessary white ink masks was impractical.  A video on the Color-Logic website shows how to easily prepare files using Color-Logic with XMPie."


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.  Color-Logic supports the value of print and works with designers and printers to enhance their printed media.
