What makes American Inks & Technology different?

We custom formulate water- and solvent-based flexographic inks and coatings, specifically for you. Every batch is matched, formulated, and made to your specifications. We also never pull ink off a shelf, we make every batch when you order. Why is this so important? Maybe you’ve got a new press and need to make a slight change to the formulation before you order your next batch. Or maybe you need a greener green or a more yellowie yellow, our chemists can make those little tweaks on demand. That’s the difference in making your ink fresh, just as soon as it’s ordered! Oh and did we mention we can even ship it out as soon as the same day you order it?*

American Inks & Technology believes that people make the difference. That's why we have technical representatives readily available to provide onsite training and troubleshooting 24/7.

Inks, coatings, and everything in between – we aren’t just an ink company we’re your partner in printing. Some additional products and services we offer are:

  • Ink blending systems, both automated and manual
  • GCMI and specialty color guides
