Color-Logic has confirmed the certification of Canon Colorado M-series printers with white ink.

Earlier this year, Canon added two new modular UVgel printers in its 1.6m Colorado roll-fed line, with the M3 and M5 both site-upgradeable for speed and able to use white ink. This is a first with this print technology, according to Canon.

At that time, Jennifer Kolloczek, European planning, marketing and innovation senior director, Production Print at Canon Europe said, ‘With its modularity and the addition of an easy-care white ink option, the new Colorado M-series is the growth engine that businesses can rely on to level up their capabilities and turn ideas into reality.’

When addressing the more recent Color-Logic certification, her colleague Mathieu Peeters, senior director, strategic marketing, large format graphics at Canon Production Printing, said, ‘We see an enormous demand for the Colorado M-series, especially by the new application opportunities provided with white ink, featuring all benefits known from UVgel technology. Printing on non-white, transparent, magnetic and metallic media for retail, packaging and interior décor applications are just a few examples. Color-Logic, in combination with Colorado M-series, provides great new opportunities for Print Service Providers with stunning effects on metallic media. I am extremely proud that besides the Arizona flatbed printers, now also the Colorado M-series roll-to-roll printers are certified.’

Mark Geeves, director of sales and marketing at Color-Logic, added, ‘When imaging on metallic stock, Canon Colorado M-series printers with white ink, together with Color-Logic software, deliver outstanding images and provide incredible door-openers for Canon printer owners. Particularly outstanding print opportunities with this combination range from personalised short-run labels to end caps, countertop displays and signage.’
