Color-Logic and Mimaki to showcase wide format metallic printing

Graphics | September 15, 2010 | By:

Mimaki wide-format printers will produce metallic images using the Color-Logic Process Metallic Color System at three upcoming exhibitions for the printing industry:

The Color-Logic system will be used to generate print files at the three major wide-format exhibitions to be held in North America in 2010, and may be seen at the Mimaki booth at each. The system allows designers to use as many metallic colors and effects as desired, creating imaginative and original printed media on a wide variety of printing platforms.

Mimaki USA also offers a new silver ink in its ES3 ink portfolio of eco-solvent inks for JV33 and CJV30 series of large format printers. Shipment of the new silver ink is expected to commence in October.

At the same time silver ink is released, Mimaki will introduce and begin shipment of its new ES3 white ink. The white ink is suited for prints on transparent and colored substrates, which benefit greatly from white underprint, making colors more vivid and permitting spectacular special effects.

Metallic effects, such as gold and bronze, as well as other color shades, can be achieved by combining the new Mimaki silver ink with full color ES3 ink, thus realizing eye-catching effects on print products. Silver inks enable print service providers to offer higher value to their customer’s creative projects. Existing Mimaki standard printers in the JV33 and CJV30 series (including JV33-130/160/260, CJV30-60/100/130/160 and TPC-1000 models) are compatible with the new silver ink, and it is not necessary to acquire additional devices or equipment. By merely switching to ES3 ink and updating the firmware and the RIP software, Mimaki silver ink can be used.

Printing with silver ink requires no special knowledge or technical skills. Users can simply choose the appropriate color from the metallic color library in Raster Link Pro5 and print their jobs with silver ink. In addition, Raster Link Pro5 enables output of all metallic color shades by calling up the feature chart for silver ink. Users can also devise their own or the appropriate customers’ colors and metallic shades.
