Color-Logic–the leader in metallic color communication and decorative effects–has certified Platinum Recycled Cast Coat, a luxury carton stock offered by Midland Paper, for use with the Color-Logic process.
Discussing the certification, Mark Geeves, Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing, said. The new Midland stock for carton applications, in combination with Color-Logic BEST Silver ink and software, is a game changer for luxury packaging applications. The samples submitted for certification–produced by a Midland client–have the smoothest glass-like surface of any cast coat we have seen.”
Also commenting on the certification, Mike Jacobson, Midland Paper Senior Vice-President Sales, said: “We knew our new Platinum Recycled Cast Coat stock would provide exceptional print quality. After tests with the Color-Logic software and BEST silver ink, however, we now know our customers can enjoy dramatic effects at an economical production cost. What can be done with five ink colors–and the fact that all the decorative effects can be done at the design stage with no post finishing necessary–opens up new markets for our new recycled board.”
