OctoInkjet sources inks from a select group of suppliers based in the USA, Germany and South Korea. While the bulk of our inks are still supplied from Image Specialists (USA) we have expanded our range to include solutions from additional suppliers/manufacturers. In many instances these are customer led, based on specific requests or recommendations.
Image Specialist remain the primary ink manufacturer and supplier for OctoInkjet, having developed and maintained an excellent reputation that's lasted over 30 years. It's also a reputation we've tested personally and professionally for more than a decade as both their customer (through distributors) and as a reseller.
The primary benefits of the Image Specialist inks are:
Note: In mid-2014, Image Specialists were merged into STS-inks (Florida, USA) so this has increased the range of available inks and affected some of the formulations we have supplied to date.
The Inktec Powerchrome K3 inks have been actively sought by existing customers looking for other Ultrachrome K3 alternatives. As a result we now stock these inks and with are considering other products from this company.
While we have limited our KMP products to their Canon compatible Pigment Black formulations, these inks have proven particularly popular with enthusiasts who value these inks unique characteristics.
Prodinks have are more actively involved in niche ink development, helping us to offer ink formulations for printers like the Canon Pro-100, the CLI-551 ink sets with other collaborations expected in the future.
As another, albeit younger company, often compared against Image Specialists we have begun stocking some specific inks and ink sets where formulations provide a good quality alternative solution for specific printers.
