  Game changing Canon advantage…

Canon print technology prevents downtime. An empty ink tank doesn’t stop you from printing films. WOW! Easy removal and cleaning of the single print head without wasting ink is another Canon benefit. You can even replace the print head under $100. Plus, enjoy high yield at the lowest per ml ink cost as compared to other solutions.
The low cost of the high-quality Pixma Pro-100 is another reason to chose or convert to Canon and Ruby™!

  About the All Black Ink™ License…

All Black Ink™ is an exclusive (Freehand invented) Feature in both AccuRIP™ and Sep Studio 4™ Software. It started a revolution for screen printers using affordable devices to print films from more than the single default black tank. Using the All Black Ink™ Feature License means ALL or any combination of tanks are engaged in film production, because instead of spraying color – they spray high quality Dmax black UV light blocking dye. Say good-bye to wasted color ink purchases.

AccuRIP Ruby EP™ (Epson) and Ruby CP™ (Canon) deliver use of the All Black Ink™ Feature License (first year license is included FREE in new and upgrade purchases of AccuRIP Ruby™ software). FREE renewal each year is available (NEVER PAY) with Freehand ink and other product purchases auto credits. Just one All Black Ink™ license (ABI) unlocks a full year’s use in both Ruby™ and Sep Studio 4™.

When the All Black Ink™ license is not needed, use the Photo Black slot. The Photo Black slot is the default slot, always available in AccuRIP™.

Freehand’s MISSION is that no user purchases an ABI License. As little as one one liter ink purchase over a one year period delivers a yearlong License. Freehand rewards loyal customers with purchase credits that build toward a FREE ABI license. Together we stay strong in business. Freehand and you, together we got this.


All Black Ink™ is the software feature, Dmax is the ink

Freehand invented the ability to print from all (or any combo) of slots in a printer, and formulated black dye to achieve UV light blocking films. AccuRIP Ruby CP™ (Canon) is bundled with a refillable ink kit with Freehand’s Dmax Ink. You’ll appreciate that the Canon Pixma Pro-100 works differently than Epson – allowing you to continue to print films when one or more tanks have run out of ink. Although we know you’ll keep Dmax on hand, it’s great to know Canon and Freehand have designed the way to keep you producing films just in case.

AccuRIP Ruby EP™ (Epson) has a software trial and an All Black Ink™ Feature trial. A purchase includes a free full year use of  the Feature. Simply make an eligible Freehand product or software purchase and the next year renewal is yours FREE.

Fanatical Team Support

When you take a free trial or purchase any Freehand software/product you enjoy FREE assistance from a team of in-house experts and professional screen printers unequalled in the industry. Since 1995 we’ve been supporting the software and products we engineer. We’re fanatical and that’s good news for you.
