How Ink is made

Ink is a big part of our business when it comes to our print design, but it is one thing that has never cross my mind to see how it is created.

I stumbled on this short story and youtube video over on the marta writes blog.

The video was created by The Printing Ink Company who are located in Canada. These clever folks have been creating inks since 1977. Their Chief Ink Maker show how colour and ink are created from the raw ingredients of power, varnish and a whole lotta love and passion.

Is there something you use every day in your job that you have no idea how it is made?
