Caligo is one of the few independent ink manufacturers that have the facilities and experience to make printing inks from dry pigment colours. This means we have control over every aspect of ink formulation and production, from the initial selection of raw materials through to the filling and sealing of the tin or tube of ink in your print studio. Find out more about the manufacture of printing inks at our Caligo Ink Factory.

The majority of our ink ranges include the primary (process) colours of cyan, magenta and yellow (CMY) for those printmakers who wish to create colour prints using digital colour separation techniques and photomechanical print processes or as a simple but effective set of primary colours for mixing your own palette.
