Sourcing Ink

The 2014 Ink Sourcelist: a directory of more than 70 suppliers of inks for wide-format printers.

Big Picture

Seeking inks for your machines? To help you in your ink quest, we’ve assembled the following Ink Sourcelist: a directory of more than 70 suppliers of inks for wide-format printers. The roster includes printer OEMs branding their own inks, ink manufacturers, and suppliers of private-labeled/branded inks. We’ve not included businesses that are only selling other companies’ branded inks (unless it’s an exclusive arrangement). This list was assembled just prior to ISA Expo 2014; check company websites for products released since that time.
