There are different types of printing inks available for lithographic printing. Inks are made up of various ingredients such as pigments (organic or inorganic) which create the colour, an oil base liquid that is mixed with the pigment and then dries, and a binding agent made of either organic resins or polymers. The two main types of ink used in lithographic printing are either fossil fuel oil based – or vegetable oil based (what we use).
The concern with using fossil fuel based inks (besides using a limited resource) is the cleaning process used after printing your product. The cleaners used are similar to acetone, and contain a high level of VOC’s, which are dangerous to humans. This cleaning product is also difficult to dispose of once finished with.
Vegetable based oil are much easier to clean, and also deliver much less harmful waste to the environment after the printing and cleaning process.
