Color-Logic and Vivid Laminating partner to expand digital foiling colour options

Color-Logic, a leader in metallic colour communication and decorative effects, has partnered with Vivid Laminating Technologies, a leading European manufacturer of laminating equipment. As a result of the partnership, any colour digital printer can now produce 250 different metallic colours from a single roll of foil – using the Color-Logic Design Suite and the award-winning Vivid Matrix Digital Foiling and Laminating System. Vivid offers both silver and rainbow holographic foils for this purpose.

“The partnership of Color-Logic and Vivid Laminating Technologies enables any CMYK digital printer to produce 250 different metallic foil hues and gradations with their existing inks and toners,” said Mark Geeves, Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing. “The attention-commanding brilliance of conventional cold foil is enhanced by the many Color-Logic special effects available to designers. And the simplicity of the Vivid system makes digital foiling available to anyone with a digital printer. The key benefit of the Color-Logic and Vivid partnership lies in the ability of printers to produce higher-margin products with their current equipment, while also attracting profitable new customers.”

Vivid Laminating Technologies has been a leading European designer and manufacturer of digital foiling and laminating systems for the printing industry for more than 30 years, exporting to more than 50 countries worldwide. Color-Logic develops colour communication systems and software tools for a variety of special-effect printing applications. Its decorative effects utilize the existing workflows of printers and designers, yielding dynamic results without the use of special equipment.
