ATLANTA, GA—Graphic Packaging Intl. has become the first flexo printer to become an accredited licensee in the United States for MetalFX. MetalFX technology is based on CMYK inks being transparent. Using a flexographic press, a base of special MetalFX silver is applied to the product package, then CMYK inks are overprinted, which produces the effect of unlimited metallic colors. MetalFX includes two special features: HoloFX, which makes areas of a package seem to appear and disappear like a holograph, and LiteFX, which creates the illusion of changing colors.
