Melville, New York-based Canon Solutions America, a wholly-owned subsidiary and the sales arm of Tokyo-based Canon, announces a collaboration with West Chester, Ohio-based Color-Logic, a developer of color communication and software tools for a variety of special effect printing applications. As part of the collaboration, Color-Logic has certified Canon Solutions America’s large-format division for metallic effect printing with Océ Arizona printers.
According to the two companies, with the addition of Color-Logic special effects software, Canon Solutions America has again increased the number of applications these printers are capable of. The Océ Arizona printers, Canon says, are known for their bright white inks that are ideal for under or overprinting and their ability to use white as a spot color or as a flood layer, helping print providers expand their application versatility. Users can decide to print multiple layers of white/color simultaneously on the flatbed or on the roll media option using one, two, or three layers of ink in total. Having high-quality white inks drastically enhances the print effects created with Color-Logic software, the companies say.
“Océ Arizona users and prospective owners can now see firsthand how the Océ Arizona printers with white ink pair with Color-Logic software,” says Mark Geeves, Color-Logic’s director of sales and marketing. “Test samples produced at the (Itasca, Illinois demonstration) center on metallic substrate yielded eye-catching point-of-purchase materials and signage, as well as provided the perfect solution for prototyping and short-run packaging with metallic substrates. These solutions open dynamic new markets with endless application opportunities for Canon Solutions America customers.”
