    Big difference: these folks are making ink for offset and letter press, not inkjets.

    Inkjet ink, as we all know, is made from distilled rainbows. That’s why it’s so g*d-awfully expensive. (though this stuff isn’t much cheaper!)

  3. Nicely done. We developed an ink mixing software program that can recycle excess ink colors into new batches. Good for the environment and it’s Pantone approved. You can download a free trial at mixmasters,com Once a color is manufactured we now have a way to recycle the unused portion into another color.
