How Ink is Made: Visually Stunning Video

This is a visually stunning video from The Printing Ink Company, showing how ink is created out of powder and varnish. I started watching this thinking I’d return and finish it later… but got sucked right in. I’ve never seen a YouTube video look this good before!

My favorite quotation from the short film: “Well you can see there’s a lot more to ink making, than just mixing two things together. There’s a lot of craftsmanship, there’s a lot of science, and there’s a lot of passion.”

Spend the nine minutes here, and treat your eyes to some unbelievable color. Gorgeousness and gorgeosity.

  3. The music makes this video quite mesmerizing. It really made me think of all the products out there that have ink on them (almost all).
