Color-Logic Facilitates Metallic VDP Printing

Adding metallic embellishments, can make a VDP job complex, with white ink mask preparation & merging complicated databases. White ink or toner on metallic stocks requires making a white ink mask, and if any change is made to an element, font or image, a new white ink mask is necessary, “unless Color-Logic is being used,” says the company.

Using Color-Logic at the design stage—with digital output on metallic stock—a design can include variable foil colors & embellishments in fonts, elements or images. Coupons, magazine covers, wedding invitations, greeting cards, posters and tags are a few of the applications for metallic VDP.

With Adobe InDesign’s built-in variable data support, it can be used with the Color-Logic Design Suite, facilitating designers adding metallic variable data into printed marketing pieces. Color-Logic is compatible with most major digital cut sheet presses—HP Indigo, Ricoh, Xeikon and Xerox—with white ink and a Color-Logic compatible RIP.

Color-Logic/Adobe InDesign has a short video explaining how digital metallic VDP can be used to create a striking magazine cover.
