Why is All Black Ink™ a great ink solution for screen printers?
Inkjet printers start out as color output devices. With the majority of slots designated to color, these cartridges do NOT have value in the film output process. Because your priority is making quality BLACK films, the color carts create an on-going and costly problem.
An inkjet device sprays ink onto film. Screen-printers need BLACK INK. The choice is obvious – let’s say it’s black and white. All Black Ink manufactured by Freehand delivers volume of top-quality, UV light blocking dye from cartridges in EVERY SLOT or for a designated set of slots. Stopping or reducing the purchasing of unnecessary color inks is a good thing. You’ll also learn that color inks that remain idle in an inkjet lead to costly maintenance to clear clogged nozzles. With any system that has idle slots be sure to perform regular maintenance including the use of Amaze-Ink Maintenance Liquid and Clog Busting System.
All Black Ink uses a formulated DYE that delivers density (dMax) well above what is needed for screen exposure. It is the BEST Dye ink in the industry achieving density in the highest ranges. All Black Ink BLOCKS UV Light which is the purpose of film in he screen exposure process. Marry All Black Ink with a quality film that grabs and holds the dye makes for the best results. With DarkStar Inkjet Film the dye won’t scratch off either!
