The six stages of the ink creation process:

Resin

STEP #1

Resin

Resin is an important component as it binds the other materials consumed in the process together and forms a film that aids in adhering to the substrate.

STEP #2

Dye

The dye contains high quality colorants which provide visibility on substrates.

Step #3

Solvent

The solvent is added to dissolve the binder and dye to maintain the flow of the ink at a certain viscosity.

STEP #4

Mixed Fluid

All ingredients are mixed to form a homogenous solution.
