No Ink. Just ZINK.®
ZINK is an exciting new way to print high-quality photos instantly…without using a drop of ink! Thanks to ZINK Technology, you can now print your cell phone or digital camera photos while you’re on the go, without needing to hook up to your computer or printer.
What is ZINK?
ZINK Zero Ink® Technology from ZINK Imaging makes it possible to produce full-colour digital images without ink cartridges, ribbons or toner. A new approach to printing, ZINK Imaging’s patented technology radically shifts the printing paradigm from ink cartridges or ink ribbons to a totally ink-free system and introduces a new category of devices that allow you to get more out of your digital content.
How Does ZINK Work?
The key to this process is the patented ZINK Paper®, an advanced composite material with cyan, yellow, and magenta dye crystals embedded inside and a protective polymer overcoat layer outside. Before printing, the embedded dye crystals are clear so ZINK Paper looks like regular white photo paper. The ZINK-enabled device uses heat to activate and colorize these crystals. The printing process is now radically simple. Just add paper®. The result is high-quality, full colour, long-lasting, durable, and affordable images.
