Esko Software Supports Color-Logic File Format


WEST CHESTER, OH | Color-Logic announces that its file format necessary to print the company’s Process Metallic Color System is now supported by Esko visualization software. This means brand managers and their designers can see the Color-Logic special effects and metallic colors on their monitor as they will appear on the finished product. The Color-Logic format changes are part of Esko Studio Suite 14 release, which includes Visualizer 14.

Color-Logic chief technical officer Richard Ainge says, "The Color-Logic Design Suite enables brand managers and their designers to add decorative effects to packages and collateral literature at a fraction of the time and cost previously associated with metallics. This partnership with Esko enables brands using the Esko Studio Visualizer to see the Color-Logic special effects on their finished product. Color-Logic products now get to market faster and at lower cost, because designers can see the effects of metallic inks or substrates on their monitors at the concept stage and can create the white ink masks necessary for holographic and metallic substrates.

“Esko users can utilize the entire Color-Logic Design Suite tool set, including changing substrates for visualization when printing on metallic substrates with white ink or with metallic ink on regular stock in a fraction of the time required by traditional methods. The upgraded Esko Studio software is said to be particularly useful for visualizing the effect of Color-Logic BEST Offset Silver Ink when conventional lithographic packaging is being designed, plus Esko Studio can now import and recognize Color-Logic spot colors. With the upgraded Esko Studio software, package designers can view the Color-Logic effect in 3D models, adding layers such as varnish, embossing, and other special effects as desired.”
