Uses of CIJ Inks
CIJ inks serve a special purpose in the commercial world. They do more than simply print words on paper — they have uses that can make the lives of manufacturers and sellers far easier and more efficient. CIJ inks typically prove their usefulness when it comes to coding and marking products and product packaging. Their main practical functions include printing:
- Numbers: As a manufacturer, you may have to print numbers on a product for many different reasons. For instance, you may have to print a lot number on your products for identification purposes. Similarly, if you sell or develop food or beverage products, you need to add a best-before date or expiration date on the packaging. CIJ inks are ideal for these types of markings because of the clarity the ink provides.
- Logos: Product logos can be small, intricate and difficult to print using normal ink. CIJ inks like ours ensure your logo, whether it's printed on paper or plastic products, comes out looking smooth and crisp. While your logo may be well-made and memorable, the quality of printing is what makes an impression on customers.
- Bar Codes: Most consumer products need a bar code, and thanks to how intricate and diverse they can be, it’s important to make sure they are printed at the highest quality. CIJ printer ink can handle this job, no matter what type of product you need to mark.
- Other Data: Depending on the product in question, you may need to use CIJ ink to print other data as well. For instance, foods or medications typically need ingredients lists, while electronics have multiple labels, such as security and FCC labeling. Whatever kind of labeling you need, we are your most dependable CIJ ink suppliers.
Products That Are Compatible With CIJ Ink
There are many products you can mark using our CIJ inks. The versatility of the ink allows you to use it for:
- Food Packaging: Whether your food products are packaged in glass, cans, paper or plastic, you can mark or code them using CIJ inks. From hamburger rolls to powder packets and cans of chicken noodle soup, CIJ printer ink allows you to print on both flat and curved surfaces so you can make marking a more convenient process.
- Beverage Packaging: Just like on food packages, you can also easily mark beverage packaging with CIJ inks. For example, you can print on plastic or glass bottles of water and soda — and the ink also works on paper packages and cartons.
- Personal Care Products: Products like cosmetics and medicine bottles usually need many different labels, as well as ingredient lists. That’s why CIJ ink makes it simple to print on tubes and plastic or glass bottles that may be used for personal care products.
