Without CMYK, Even Your Dream Will Be Monochrome!

CMYK
Can you imagine dreaming in black and white? It is believed by some experts that if you are over 55 and were brought up watching black and white (monochrome) TV then you may have dreamed in black and white and still are.

You can imagine how life would be like without colour, simply dull! Luckily we are aware of what colour is. But are you aware of the CMYK colour model which consists of four colours – Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key (Black). This colour model is used in colour printing process to give you the desired colours you require. Each of the colour mixes together on a white paper to portray the desired colour on the printed paper.

Colour is very important in our every day life, whether we use it for printing or filling up or re-manufactured ink cartridges, we need the colours to visually see everything in a different perspective.

All printers, whether it’s a HP, OKI, Dell or Brother Printer uses the CMYK colour model for their ink cartridges. However depending on what type of printing machine you use, some top end printers like the Canon Pro 9500 Pixma Printer supports the use of inks that are specially formulated for printing photographs. And these inks are labelled as Photo Black, Matte Black, Photo Cyan etc. Even though it is better to have a separate ink cartridges for each of the colours e.g. a separate cartridge for black and separate for magenta and so on, it is common to buy a single cartridge that contains the 3 colour mixtures CMY and these ink cartridges are referred to as Tri-colour (3 Colours – CMY).

Why is colour important for everyday life?

Colour is what makes any texts really stand out and differentiate from others. What makes a good website is the theme of the colour being used and how it makes the website engaging as well as trustworthy. Colour in logos brings out brand awareness and establishes your logo so that people become familiar with them. Only seeing a monochrome logo or website can be daunting and not very interesting.

But it’s not just about the visuals. Colours can also affect your other senses and play with your emotions. In school days you probably have learnt that Red is described as anger or alarming colour, Blue is portrayed as cold etc. Even in road traffic signs you will see the type of colours used to warn pedestrians and drivers e.g. red means stop and green means go.

There are so many psychological meaning behind colours and well known brands have picked up on this and started incorporating this finding into their brand logos. This useful image below tells us the meaning behind colour and the brands that are using these colours.

Here is a nice chart for CMYK colours and what they can mean;

Cyan- emotionally Cyan colour can refer to relaxation, calmness, and loneliness.

Magenta- psychologically Magenta colour can show emotions of love, romance, fighting, blood, and royalty.

Yellow- this Yellow colour portrays lively, energetic, happiness, excitement, flowers, and summer.

Black- the Black colour is synonyms to wealth, power, sadness, depression, fear, death, and mourning.

cmyk chart

So next time when your printing your artwork from your Canon or Epson printer you might want to rethink before you print about the type of colours you have used and change it since you will have a better understanding of what they mean.

Ink Facts That You Didn’t Know About!

When we talk about Ink everyone assumes of the kind of ink that we use on a daily basis like, printer inks (the refilling of ink in a toner or ink cartridge) or ink in a fountain pen. Ink is probably one of those things that we use on a daily basis but the importance of ink is very high as it was the only medium that was used to communicate ideas throughout history before the digital technology. Ink has evolved drastically from the ancient inks that were produced from burnt bones and plant dyes to the present day where inks are obtained from natural plants, minerals or manufactured from chemicals to produce a dye or pigment that gives the inks its colour. Today, scientists are even bringing out 3D Printer ‘ink’ that will change everything completely as 3D printing is the next big invention.

Here are some ink facts that you most probably didn’t know about or are unaware of:

1. Be a Secret Agent by Making Invisible Inks from Lemon Juice

You probably have done experiment of this in your science lab classes by using a lemon juice to create invisible ink. If you haven’t, try this at home and you can create your own invisible ink that only costs you a lemon.

Step 1: Take a lemon juice and squeeze into a bowl
Step 2: Add a little bit of water in to the bowl
Step 3: Use a cotton bud to dip into the mixture and write on a plain piece of paper
Step 4: Wait for the juice to completely dry (so it becomes invisible) and then hold it up to a light bulb and you can read your secret message

In 1995, a man tried to rob a bank by covering his face with lemon juice thinking that it will work the same way as the lemon juice experiment on paper and make him invisible from the security cameras. FAIL!!

2. The So Called Green Incredible Hulk was actually Grey

The famous Incredible Hulk from the comic book was actually portrayed as a tombstone grey rather the green. Stan Lee, the creator of the Incredible Hulk and many other superheroes wanted the Incredible Hulk to be grey so that it is not associated with any race. Because grey is not very consistent in printing and was hard to maintain in printing, the hulk had a different shades of grey when printing; sometimes light grey or dark grey. It was later on that the Hulk was changed to green as the green ink colour could be more carefully controlled in printing therefore was consistent throughout the comic books.

3. Real Ashes in a Comic Book

As you know inks were originated from burnt bones and ashes. But now this method of making ink has been discontinued. If you ever owed a comic book called Squadron Supreme by Marvel Comics you could be one of the lucky (or unlucky) ones that may have held ashes of Mark Grunewald who is known for popular titles such as The Avengers, Captain America, and Thor. Before Mark passed away, one of his wishes was that once cremated he wishes his ashes were mixed into the inks of a comic book and this wish was fulfilled.

4. Termites. Love it or Hate it

termites ink trail

Termites are probably one of the worst insects I can think off. If you have an infestation of termites you are probably under a lot of stress as they eat away wood at people homes costing billions of money in property damage around the whole world each year. Now it’s time for payback and time to bring out the termites from hiding. Termites leaves a trail just like Hansel and Gretel with breadcrumbs to their food source. Termites excrete a trail of pheromones so that they can find their food later. This useful information has been used by many pest controllers to find termites by using ink from any ballpoint pen to mimic the effect of pheromones as ink contains these kind of substance that will make the termites believe it’s their trail.

If you want to have fun with termites you can gather a handful of termites and put then a piece of paper. Use a ballpoint to draw a design and watch how the termites follow the trail believing that they are following their own trail to their food source. Be control of them and don’t let them eat away your woods.

Now you know there are some interesting facts about inks and how useful inks can be. If you prefer just some normal printer inks and not invisible lemon ink, the incredible hulk ink, ink made from ashes or termite trailing ink, then visit inkntoneruk. Here at inkntoneruk you find the number one source to find inks in ink cartridges or toner cartridges for your printer. You can choose from refilling by sending us your empty cartridges so we can refill them for you, or if not we can offer you compatibles that come in budget or premium prices. If you prefer original OEMs of ink and toner cartridges we do them as well. We promise we don’t use inks made from ashes, like how Mark Grunewald did!

Useful things you didn’t know you can Print

Print Origami Designs

Origami is the Japanese art of folding a piece paper into shapes and objects to create a beautiful design. If you are a fan of origami and would like to create a beautiful artwork, have a look at the video below to make an origami sea turtle. It is a pretty easy origami to make so it’s perfect for new beginners.

All you simply need to do is choose a turtle design and print it using your printer. There are different variants of designs and fun colours to print. There is a small dotted grey outline to cut out from the printed paper to make it into a square design. Follow the instructions in the video to fold the sea turtle. You can print as many as you like and have a collection of those turtles sitting around in your home.

Some useful tips when printing the turtle designs;

You can use any paper and any printer of your choice to print this. We would advise you to not to use special photo paper with a thicker gsm as it may be harder to fold and also you don’t want to use them papers up when you can be using them for other high quality photos like family pictures.

Use an inkjet or laser printer to print the designs. It’s entirely up to you to choose what printer to use to print the designs. If you want to print the designs in really high quality, then use an inkjet printer, for normal decent quality a laser printer will do the job well.

Whether you have a printer that takes ink cartridges or a printer that takes toner cartridges, choose the right type of consumable supplies for your printer to print the designs. If high quality printing is a high priority then use the original manufacturer cartridges to print the designs. If you prefer to save cost then choose the premium compatible ink/toner cartridges for your printer which gives you almost the same quality as the original branded cartridges. For those that high quality does not matter, and wants to save on ink, choose the budget compatible ink or toner cartridges. All the different type of cartridges will give you the end results but quality will slightly vary. Visit our website inkntoneruk.co.uk for more information on compatible cartridges for your printer and you will see how much you will be saving.

Many thanks to heather lynne shida for the designs.

We hope you enjoy having fun making these turtles and let us know how you get on by commenting on our twitter, facebook or google+ pages.

Would you like a Pocket Printer? A Kickstarter Project

Pocket Printer

Would you like to own a pocket printer that fits comfortably in your pockets and you can carry it around with you anywhere in the world just like you carry your Smart Phone with you? Well you only have to wait until next year for the new release of the Pocket Printer into the printing industry market.

Zuta Labs (an Israeli start-up company) plans to release this new pocket printer early part of next year. This unique and innovative printer can fit snugly into anyone’s pocket and works with all different sizes of paper. This is because the robot (i.e. the printer) will move around a page while printing ink as it goes on to the paper. The team behind this pocket printer reports that the printer would be 11.5cm wide, 10cm high and weigh only 300grams. This printer would be ideal for anyone who is looking to print urgently, maybe on one or two pages on the go. For example it is perfect for printing a small contract, memos, notes, and electronic tickets for flights or train. You can already see the huge benefits this printer can provide.

Having raised over £260,000 of funding for this project, the company behind this pocket printer has given the thumbs up to proceed with it.

How does it work?

Click Here to Watch the Video

Pocket Printer Mechanism

So you know that the device moves around a page and prints on to it as it goes. Simple. But how does it work. This compact pocket printer is fitted with an ink cartridge to a small robot inside the outer shell that crawls over a paper to portray the written texts, unlike a traditional printer that feeds paper through the printer.

At the base of the pocket printer there are a number of wheels that turns and drives in different directions so that the texts can be printed on to the paper in different lines. Even though the current prototype requires a wired connection in order to work, the team behind this innovative product states that the final product will be controlled by a computer or Smart Phone via the use of Bluetooth technology.

The printer is likely to cost around £140 when it goes on sale to the public in 2015.

Downsides

Pocket Printer Inside

Even though it is only a prototype the portable printer has a very slow speed, and is no way as fast as an inkjet printer or even a laser printer. It is reported that the current prototype by Zuta Labs can only print approximately one page per minute. Now compare this to for example the Samsung SCX-6322DN Colour Multifunction Printer that can print up to 22 pages per minute.

Other downsides of this current prototype are; it can only print in greyscale and has lower resolution than traditional inkjet printers. Therefore the quality of the output won’t be clear and sharp like the normal standard printers. The current prototype uses an old HP Black Ink Cartridge; therefore it can be justified why the quality is poor as the pocket printer is not yet suitable to be used with the new, smart, and smaller cartridges.

Although these are just initial prototypes we at inkntoneruk believe that the engineers at Zuta Labs will be able to produce pocket printers that give out higher resolutions and prints quickly too.

Improvements

Pocket Printer Zuta

If this pocket printer becomes a success, the team at Zuta Labs plans to launch a colour version of this printer that can print pictures and even print on different surfaces such as clothing, walls and tiles. However those would require a special type of ink to produce outputs on to those surfaces.

We at inkntoneruk are very excited over the whole idea of how this pocket printer works because when you can control a robot like this one with a smart phone to do a task for you, imagine the possibilities that it opens.

We can assume that the pocket printer will be supported by major printer brands such as Epson, Canon, HP, and Samsung, therefore they might initially only take OEM’s cartridges to start off with. It won’t be long before when we start supplying premium ink cartridges and budget ink cartridges for the new pocket printers. We might also be able to refill the ink cartridge that goes inside the pocket printers.

Look out for the pocket printers when they launch in 2015 and don’t forget to check out inkntoneruk to see if we offer the original, budget, and premium compatible ink cartridges for your pocket printer.

Feel free to comment on our twitter, facebook or google+ pages and get the word out of this new technology.

Yours sincerely;

The ONLY Travel Good you need on your Holiday

holiday iphone

At inkntoneruk we hope that you have had a fantastic Easter Break or even a long Weekend away. Whether you stayed at Home, or went away in the UK or even swimming in the Bahamas, we hope you really enjoyed a decent Break from your work life or taking the stress out from other issues in your life.

I am writing this post today because I realised when going away to travel on your holiday, the question that popped in my head a few times was; what is the best type of travel good should you take with you. While I was packing away for my long weekend to go abroad I was struggling to decide if I should take all my devices with me such as a camera, iPad, Smart Phone and also my Mac book. Having considering the advantages and disadvantages of each device, I realised that you have to consider loads of factors and issues in arising of what or how much stuff you can take with you abroad. For example you should avoid taking expensive equipments with you on a holiday and also consider how much you take with you as you will need to consider the luggage requirement sizes. The golden rule is to not to take something with you if you don’t use it at all.

From my conclusion I only decided to take my iPhone with me abroad. And to be honest that is the only gadget you need (and don’t forget to take your charger and even better a spare battery pack for your iPhone). Leave behind those unnecessary things or expensive items that you think you will need on your travel but in fact when you’re enjoying the sunshine in the holiday resort, you would wish that you didn’t bring that expensive item e.g. a DSLR Camera with you on your holiday. Because one, you didn’t really make use of it and two, you are always having to keep an eye on it because you don’t want to lose it or damage it.

holiday gadgets

Here is a list of a few technological items that you should avoid taking with you on your next holiday that you travel to:

• A Tablet. Samsung Galaxy Tablet, iPad, Microsoft Surface Tablet or Blackberry Playbook – you may use it to take photos, browse the internet, social media, and gather your photos so that it is ready for print. Tablets are expensive and it’s your own personal device that the thought of losing it or being stolen sends shivers down your spine.

• A Camera. Digital Camera, Camcorder, Instant Camera, DSLR Camera – To take pictures. Instant cameras don’t require any ink cartridges however they do require film packs. Cameras can get damaged and it’s just an excess item that you always have to carry around with you.

• A Laptop – to manage your holiday photos. It’s too risky to take a Netbook or laptop as it is bulky and expensive therefore there is a high risk of it being stolen.

• A Portable Printer – this device will require ink or toner cartridges in order for it to print out documents or photos. Again taking a printer with you (well a portable one), you have to decide if it is necessary to take one. Can you not wait till you’re at home to print your files or if needs must find a local shop on your holiday that accommodates for in-house printing and you can simply print from your mobile device rather than carrying a printer with you.

At inkntoneruk, our advice would be that the only technological item that you should take with you is your Smart Phone. A Smart Phone such as a Samsung Galaxy S5, iPhone 5s or Sony Xperia Z1. This mobile device can meet the requirements of the above technologies (well apart from the portable printer that lets you print out physical hard copies of documents). The Smart Phone will be able to let you take photos, stay in touch with social media, manage your photography into albums so that it is ready for print when you come back home.

With useful features such as Apple AirPrint on your Apple iPhone 5s that lets you automatically connect to your printer and NFC functionalities that lets you print just by tapping your Samsung Galaxy S5 to your printer, printing your holiday photos has never been easier before. But don’t forget for those ‘special capabilities’ you will require a printer that includes these features. Samsung has launched the Samsung Xpress C460 and 410 Series of printers that are NFC enabled. The HP Photosmart 6520 e-All-in-One Printer features Apple AirPrint as well as other mobile printing capabilities such as HP ePrint and HP wireless direct printing.

nfc printer

So it’s been finalised that the only travel good you need on a holiday is your Smart Phone e.g. an iPhone 5s (or you can wait till the iPhone 6 releases as there might be advanced technologies on the iPhone 6 to make taking photos even better or adding other printing capabilities).

We hope this article has been useful to you and we would appreciate anything else you would like to add by commenting below or on a twitter, facebook or google+ pages.

Yours sincerely;

Easter Egg Hunt Clue Cards

Have fun this Easter with our easy to do printable Easter card sets. As a family, this egg hunt is a brilliant idea for your children to participate in and have fun this Easter. See below some Easter Egg Hunt Clue Cards that have been designed to print out using your lovely printer whether you got an Epson, Canon, Brother, Dell, HP or Lexmark Printer.

Remember you don’t have to use the original ink cartridges from your inkjet printer to print these. As the cards will be disposable and one time use, to save money and for those in a tight-budget you can use our budget compatibles or premium compatible ink cartridges to print your Easter card sets. Even better if you didn’t know, you can send your empty ink cartridges to us using our Freepost and we will fill them up for you (this is the cheapest option to get printing those cards).

Once you have printed the 3 cards out, simply write a clue of the places where you have hid the eggs. Make sure to scatter the eggs everywhere around your home.

easter card hunt 3

Cyan Easter Egg Hunt Card (click to enlarge + print)

easter card hunt 1

Magenta Easter Egg Hunt Card (click to enlarge + print)

easter card hunt 1

Yellow Easter Egg Hunt Card (click to enlarge + print)

When the egg hunt is over, give out prizes for the achievements; you can give out prizes for the following:

1. Getting a specific colour e.g. the prizes varies depending on who got the most (blue) cyan, (red) magenta or yellow eggs.
2. Getting a specific size. Smaller eggs are harder to find so the prizes will be better for them.
3. Who collected the most eggs? Quantity also matters so the winner will be who got the most eggs.

Here’s an idea what you can write on the Egg Hunt Clue Cards;

CLUE: With 3 colours I can make you a rainbow, anything you want I can give it to you…

ANSWER: A Printer.

The 3 colours refer to the tri-colour inks used in colour printers i.e. Cyan, Magenta and Rainbow which can be used to produce a printed colourful rainbow. ‘The anything you want bit’ means that if you want anything e.g. a luxury car or the Taj Mahal the printer can give it to you (well a printed version of it).

Great Hiding Place: Now you can hide the mini eggs inside of the printer, by simply opening the printer and putting it inside the printer. Or you can also hide it in the paper tray or other convenient place of the printer. Remember to turn your printer of whilst doing this as you don’t want the printer to start turning on while the eggs inside….that could get messy!

All the best, and have a lovely Easter scavenger hunt with your family and friends;

Top 5 Tips on Printing Great Photos

photoprinting title inkntoneruk

Use Compatible Cartridges for normal everyday use.

Many businesses and individuals use original ink and toner cartridges for normal printing use e.g. printing business related documents such as invoices and receipts. If you are a business that prints those types of outputs then re-manufactured compatible toner cartridges are the ideal choice for you, as high definition quality won’t matter to you but saving money will. For everyday home use printing choose our refills or budget compatible ink cartridges that have been specifically designed to save a lot of money as they will do the job perfectly for you. Not a lot of in-house printing requires high definition printing quality and so it is worth trying out our cheap but decent quality compatible ink and toner cartridges. However, if you want to produce top-notch quality photographs, then the OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturer) cartridges is the recommended choice. So remember to save cost:

1. Choose compatible ink/toner cartridges for everyday printing
2. Choose original ink/toner cartridges for high definition photo printing

Here are the top tips to consider when printing photographs from using the original manufactured cartridges.

1. Use an inkjet printer preferably a photo inkjet printer. Using an inkjet printer rather than a laser printer is a logical choice. Inkjet photo printers will cost much less than laser printers and will produce the same outcome. Remember what you pay for is what you get, so choose a high spec inkjet printer that can produce high quality photo images.

2. Take High Definition photos with a decent camera. Always print from the original image (this should usually have a high resolution of between 2,400 to 4,800 dpi and should be more than 1mb in file size). This ensures that your photos come out more crisp and clear and not blurry. You can always tweak your digital camera or photo device to increase the resolution settings.

3. Ensure that the up-keeping and maintenance of your photo printer is met. Always take care of your printer as instructed in the user guides. This includes cleaning the head unit and printer alignment. Things like blocked nozzles and clogged printer heads can compromise on print quality. Also turning of the printer when it’s not in use eliminates exposure to dust particles on the printer heads. Exposure to dust particles can significantly reduce the quality of the printed photos. Remember do not upgrade your printing software and agree on printer updates as they have NO relation to the quality of the prints. If you update your firmware then the compatible ink or toner cartridges may not work with your device. More can be read on this topic by click here.

4. Adjust the printer settings through the application that you use to optimum settings for print quality. Software plays a big part on photo quality. There are many changes you can do to optimise your photos before you print. Use the advanced settings on the application settings for your printer to adjust things like print speed to maximum available quality, choose the right type of paper size you want to print in, adjust the resolution settings on the printer to the highest possible dpi and adjust the print settings to determine the quality you need.

5. Find the right type of consumable supplies you need. For high quality photo printing, choose the original manufacturer supplies. You can choose the original high capacity ink and toner cartridges to print your photos with which is better value for money that gives you much more yield than buying the standard versions. Purchase the right type of original photo paper that you require for optimum results. For true-photo quality images you can choose from Matte Photo Paper, High-Gloss Photo Paper and Resin-Coated Photo Paper depending on the type of photo look that you would like to produce. Likewise with ink cartridges it is important that you choose the right type of ink for the photos that you need. The common types of inks are dye-based and pigment-based inks. It is important that you are aware of the differences. Dye-based inks produce prints with vibrant colours but they can be slow to dry and sometimes the images can become blurry. On the other hand pigment based inks have a much quicker drying time, which results in prints with clearer images. There are also waterproof, pigment-based inks available that are used for photo printing and come in individual Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black cartridges that work together to print photographs.
