Unfortunately MetalFX is no more =\
From a recent newsletter:
Color Logic is not MetalFX! Letâ€™s clear up some things right now! Some people believe that Color Logic is the same process (and maybe even the same company) as MetalFX, a company that introduced a metallic printing system late in the last decade. Here is the real story:
The company, MetalFX, is no more. MetalFX was purchased and the buyer closed the doors.
Color-Logic Inc was founded after MetalFX closed, and released the Color-Logic Process Metallic Color System in May 2010.
The process, MetalFX, also is no more. Printers who licensed the MetalFX process were required to buy and use MetalFX inks. The inks are no longer available.
MetalFX inks were very expensive, but Color-Logic offers its BEST Offset Silver ink for $34 per pound. An entirely new formulation, the Color-Logic silver inkwill not dull down under aqueous or UV coatings, or laminates. In fact it actually gets brighter. Plus the solid ink densityâ€”at only 0.35 Dmaxâ€”does not pile like standard offset silver inks. Find out more
The process, MetalFX, was available only for offset lithography.
Color-Logic, too, is available for offsetâ€”and for flexography; digital printing such as HP Indigo, Xeikon, and EFI Jetrion; and a large variety of wide-format and flat-bed digital printers. In addition, Color-Logic supports printing on metallic substrate with white ink plus CMYK inks in offset, inkjet, digital presses, and flexo.
MetalFX software was not simple to use and is no longer supported. It required extensive knowledge of metallic printing.
Color-Logic design software is compatible with the latest versions of Photoshop, In Design, Illustrator, and QuarkXPress. And it works on both Macs and PCs. Dramatic special effects can be created with a single mouse click. View our 7-minute videoto see how simple we have made creating special effects.
MetalFX, like other metallic systems, provided printers with a metallic swatchbook and asked them to match it, despite the fact that it did not represent their press, process inks or paper combinations.
The Color-Logic certification process enables printers to differentiate themselves from their competition by allowing them to print their own swatchbook with their process inks, printing press and papers. Color-Logic is compatible with G7, ISO or in house printing specifications and standards.
MetalFX only sold licenses, and did not provide additional training or marketing materials to licensed printers or designers.
Color-Logic also licenses printers, but we provide a Master Class Tutorial program for designers and extensive print ready marketing collateral for licensed printers. Live monthly webinarstarget the design and brand management communities to create demand for the Color-Logic process and drive business to licensed and certified Color-Logic printers. At the recent HOW Design Conference in Chicago, we introduced the Color-Logic technology to more than 3000 graphic designers.
Color Logic is:
Affordable â€“ The most cost effective system in the world for implementing metallics and/or special effects.
Simple to Implement â€“ Works within the current workflow and printing processes of both designers and printers.
Amazing Results â€“ Using offset, inkjet, digital presses, and flexo. Request a sample and see for yourself.
Predictable â€“ Printers create their own swatchbook, versus trying to match a swatch they did not print.
