Proofing Technologies, manufacturer of JetComp films used for producing flexible packaging mock-ups or proofs, has collaborated with Color-Logic to streamline prototyping or proofing of metallic flexible packaging.
Color-Logic has certified JetComp 2 mil silver metallised polypropylene film for use with its Process Metallic Color System. By utilising the Color-Logic process and printing with an Epson, Mimaki, or Roland solvent wide format printer, package designers can immediately see the effects of the Color-Logic system on their packages.
Color-Logic chief technical officer Richard Ainge comments: "Prototyping metallic flexible packages was difficult and unpredictable until Color-Logic and JetComp collaborated to simplify and standardize the process. Color-Logic files may now be printed on
JetComp metallised film using widely available wide format printers to proof and produce short runs of new flexible packages."
Director of sales and marketing Mark Geeves adds: "Designs for printing on metallised films require complex white ink masks which can be generated with just a click of the mouse using Color-Logic software, rather than the hours often required when creating the masks manually within Adobe Creative Suite. Our collaboration with JetComp and their metallised films enables prototyping to be done in a fraction of the time and cost associated with traditional methods being used today."
The Color-Logic system is compatible with offset, inkjet, flexo, digital presses, screen printing, and gravure. It is suitable for packaging, pouches, labels, and shrink sleeves.
