Getting my head around Color Logic for the first time, and it's a pretty cool process. Not to get too technical, it's a proprietary pre-press and printing process that makes printing with metallic color or on metallic stock almost automatic. And the available effects are stunning!
(Giz, you're probably aware of this, but if you're not, check it out.)
There are a/b 250 proprietary cmyk metallics plus their own silver. The installer places the color books into the presets and swatch folders for ID, Ai, Ps, and QXP, plus what they call "actions" if you need metallic blends. That's for printing on regular white stock. For printing on metallic substrates, you bring the artwork into Ps and change the silver channel to white and invert it.
It takes a little bit of time to get the hang of it, but from then on, it's pretty easy. But you have to use a Color Logic-certified printer, because they are the only ones with the inks. Ya can't take this to Kinkos!
