Designing for digital printing is fast becoming a critical issue for agencies and freelance graphic designers. The ability of digital processes to support variable data printing means that designers for both commercial printing and packaging must learn how to handle the complex files involved. Add metallic printing to the equation, and many designers become overwhelmed with preparing the necessary white ink masks, as well as the peculiarities of merging databases with otherwise simple print files. To address these issues and to vastly simplify the graphic design work involved, Color-Logic has prepared a detailed tutorial specifically detailing the steps involved, using the Color-Logic software with Adobe InDesign to produce print files guaranteed to clear all the hurdles presented by digital presses.
