How Ink Is Made – Pigment powders, varnish, & big machines

A Chief Ink Maker shows how colour and ink is created from the raw ingredients–powder, varnish, and passion. Everything designers and printers need to know about the process, the challenges and joy of ink making.

This promotional video by Canadian ink maker The Printing Ink Company, this video not only explains the behind the scenes of how ink colors are made, but its artful presentation makes the process actually feel inspirational. The music, Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-Flat Major, Op. 73, “The Emperor”: II. Adagio un poco mosso by Apollo Symphony Orchestra, helps, too.
