We all know that ink is expensive, but are we really aware of how much it actually costs? It is one of the most expensive liquids in the world. We may often feel as though the price is unjustified, but it is a necessary part of any office. Whatever, you feel about it, the history of ink is fascinating.
It was first used 2500 years ago in Egypt and China, and it was produced from fine carbon particles, and the people who produced it used gums and glues to bind the particles together.
Shortly after this, the Chinese began to use natural plant dyes and minerals to create ink. These would be ground together and mixed with water to create ink.
Ink has a come a long way since then, with the quality of some inks today being outstanding. Nowadays, with just cyan, magenta, yellow and black, almost every colour imaginable can be created.
We stock consumables and stationery supplies like paper, toner and ink, at competitive prices, and if you’re looking for printers for sale, we have various types available. If you require a standard office printer, or a multifunction device that combines both copying and printing, we have a wide selection.
We also sell a range of production printers, such as screen printing equipment, or continuous feed printers for a high-output office. If you have all the devices you need, but require software solutions, we can add substantial value to the current infrastructure of your office.
Owning the hardware is only one part of the structure of a working office, and our solutions are able to increase productivity and get your office working the way it should.
