Tips – How to choose ink?

Posted in Latest News

Here are some tips for choosing the right color for a particular print job:

Consider the substrate you are printing on: The type of substrate you are printing on (eg paper, plastic, metal) can affect your color choice. Some colors work better on certain substrates than others, so it is important to choose a color that is compatible with the substrate.

Assess the desired goal: The desired finish of the printed product can also influence the choice of color. For example, if you want a glossy finish, UV paint may be a better choice than traditional paint.

Specify the printing method: different printing methods (eg offset, UV, digital) may require different types of ink. It is important to choose a color that is compatible with the printing method you will be using.

Consider color gamut: Some colors may offer a wider color gamut or a more accurate color match than others. Think about your color requirements when choosing.

Assess the durability requirement: If the printed product will be exposed to harsh environments or wear and tear, it is important to choose an ink that offers the required level of durability.

Consider Environmental Factors: If environmental concerns are your priority, look for paints that are environmentally friendly or have low HOC emissions.

Consult with color manufacturers or suppliers: Color manufacturers or suppliers can provide guidance on the best color options for a particular print job. They can also provide samples to test before making a final decision, and we can help you.
