West Chester, Ohio – Color-Logic has certified the Gallus Labelfire 340 digital production system for cold foil applications with the Color-Logic process metallic color system. The Gallus press is the first production hybrid label system to be certified for overprinting CMYKGOV inks on cold foil. Confirming the certification, Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing Mark Geeves commented: "The Gallus certification samples utilizing KURZ KPW OP cold foil with the Heidelberg Saphira UV v2 inks provided incredible results. All of the Color-Logic decorative effects were faithfully reproduced, and the tonal range which the Gallus Labelfire was able to print exceeded expectations."
Geeves continued: "The Color-Logic colors produced by combining KURZ foil with the Gallus Labelfire stood out incredibly. A salient feature of the Color-Logic system is that converters produce their own color charts, thus illustrating how the system integrates the substrate, inks and coatings. Brands around the world are sure be impressed with the gamut of colors seen from the Gallus Labelfire on foil."
