Touch7 Neon Colour Guides simplify use of neon inks in digital printers

Print Solutions

New Touch7 Neon Colour Guides are now available that simplify use by graphic designers of the neon and fluorescent inks being offered by various print engine manufacturers.

Until now, graphic designers preparing files for use with the new neon inks have been confined to commercially available guides that were produced using offset lithography. When designers attempt to use these analogue colour guides in digital print, however, the resulting print is often disappointing. This means lengthy trial and error procedures when attempting to design for the latest digital print engines.

Because inks vary among print engine manufacturers, theTouch7 Colour Guides are produced and sold only by the printer manufacturers, for use only with their machines.

Richard Ainge, developer of the Touch7 process, said: ‘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. Graphic designers will be amazed at the time savings and predictability of their work when using the Touch7 software to prepare files for print. Their print customers will be equally amazed at the astounding colour enhancements possible. The first Touch7 Neon Colour Guides available are for pink and yellow neon and fluorescent colours on their digital presses. Touch7 provides print engine manufacturers with 760 colours for each neon colour, in addition to the standard CMYK ink sets available. Touch7 Neon Colour 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.’
