Ryerson’s School of Graphic Communications Management recently received a donation from Color-Logic, developers of colour communication systems and software for a wide range of special effect printing applications.

The Color Logic Process Metallic Color System software provides a selection of 250 different metallic colours and it only requires a total of five inks to print. Special effects are pre-built into palettes allowing for easy accessibility in designing for metallic colours and decorative effects. There are plugins available for Adobe Creative Cloud applications and QuarkXPress, and offer printers and converters both an accurate system for exchanging colour information for metallics, as well as the ability to print on foils and other substrates with white plus CMYK inks.

The software is compatible with offset, inkjet, flexography, digital presses, screen printing, and gravure processes. It is also cross-media compatible with the user’s existing workflows and can work without the need to purchase any additional equipment.


With the new donation, students at GCM are able to have more innovative options when designing for packages, labels, brochures, and projects. The Color Logic Process Metallic Color System provides new practices and possibilities for students to expand their knowledge in printing and design.
