The Color-Logic Design Suite – a suite of plug-ins and palettes for graphic designers – now permits gradating multiple metallic colors, one into another. The Gradation-FX technique available in the upgraded Color-Logic Design Suite enables graphic designers to create special effects that are impossible with spot metallic inks. Additionally, the upgraded Suites features the Watermark-FX feature, a plug-in tool for popular design software, that enables graphic designers to create watermarks without using a varnish plate or expensive post-press finishing. With just one mouse click, the Watermark-FX feature creates watermarks for use as first-line security or market identity purposes. The Color-Logic Design Suite is available from licensed Color-Logic printers.
