Richard Ainge and Mark Geeves, co-founders of the award-winning Process Metallic Color System by Color-Logic, have developed Touch7, a new product offering for Extended Colour Gamut printing.
Geeves, Touch7’s Director of Sales and Marketing said, “Extended colour gamut (ECG) printing is nothing new to the printing industry. However, Touch7 with it’s automated and simple “one-click” colour palettes and plug-ins, empowers designers and prepress personnel to do in seconds, what currently can require hours in manual processing and masking.”
“The developments by ink companies, print engines, RIP manufacturers and ICC profiling tools has been extensive over the past years, however, no one has really focused on the necessity for providing creative tools for designers, so that they can utilize these developments and reduce their cycle time to production, " said Ainge.
"Our focus at Touch7 was to develop an intuitive system that would help brands utilize ECG printing at a fraction of the time and cost associated with doing manual processing, and without the necessity to send your files through a dedicated colour separation system, therefore opening up ECG printing to even the smallest print shop. The true power of Touch7 lies in it’s automated ECG colour palettes and plug-ins for Adobe CC, ensuring that designers can create artworks in an extended colour gamut, without ever having to leave the familiar creative environment” Ainge concluded.
Developed to empower photographers, printers, designers and prepress personnel, Touch7 is an extended colour gamut system for Adobe CC, comprising of three primary components: Touch7 Photo, Touch7 Vector and Touch7 Soft-Proofing.
