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-color 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 COLOR, long-lasting, durable, and affordable images.”
