|Two-pass job with Silver Dry Ink||JobFlow only||Imports two new workflows - Color-Logic™ Main and Color-Logic™ Silver. Uses rules-based routing to copy the job and process it simultaneously in both workflows. The Color-Logic Main workflow removes the silver spot color "CL 4713 Silver” from the file and sends the job to the hold queue. The Color-Logic Silver removes all colors except the silver spot color "CL 4713 Silver" and also sends the job to the hold queue. The job requires two print passes in order to produce the metallic effects with silver Dry Ink so the workflow uses the Connect module to rename the job and indicate which version needs to be printed first.
Note: This workflow is specifically created for Fiery Driven™ Xerox® Color 800i/1000i Presses with silver Specialty Dry Ink.
