How Ink Is Made

I came across this link in a recent emailer from Applied Arts Magazine and thought it would be neat to share it with everyone. It is a documentary style video for The Printing Ink Company who  produces inks for the printing industry. In the video, head inkmaker Peter Welfare explains the story of How Ink is Made.

Being a designer, I don’t get to see everything that happens after I send my file to a printer or just what it takes to make the “perfect” printed piece. This video gives a glimpse into just one aspect of that process: creating the ink. It details the process of making C, M, Y, and K. Helping me to understand a bit more  about the behind-the-scenes work involved in getting my ideas from computer screen to paper. Enjoy.
