How Ink is Made
Posted by Scott
I always see those huge drums of ink sitting around when I’m on press for a print job but it rarely occurs to me to ponder where it comes from. Well thanks to The Printing Ink Company, now we know. It’s amazing the time and the attention to detail they put into each step. Beautifully shot; the whole thing really makes me appreciate printed materials all the more.

Cool video, but I can’t believe nobody was wearing respirators! They must all be high all the time. Unless they’re making some kind of chemical-free ink that doesn’t stink?
