Color-Logic releases new Touch7 neon colour guides. The guides aim to simplify the use of neon and fluorescent inks that are offered by various print engine manufacturers.

Until now, graphic designers who prepare files for use with the new neon inks were limited to commercially available guides that were produced using offset lithography. When designers attempt to use these analog colour guides in digital print, the result is “disappointing”. This means lengthy trial-and-error procedures when attempting to design for the latest digital print engines.

Since inks vary among print engine manufacturers, theTouch7 colour guides are produced and sold only by printer manufacturers, for use only with their machines.

“Touch7 neon colour guides are printed by Color-Logic partners that manufacture digital print engines, and thus reflect exactly what can be expected when using the substrate on which the guide was printed. Touch7 Neon Color Guides help printers demonstrate and communicate to graphic designers the extended gamut of colours as well as the delicate pastels possible on digital presses, without the difficulty of trying to match colours seen in an offset-produced guide,” said Richard Ainge, developer of the Touch7 process.

The Touch7 neon colour guides are now available for pink and yellow neon and fluorescent colours. Touch7 provides print engine manufacturers with 760 colours for each neon colour, in addition to the standard CMYK ink sets.
