What type of inks are used on EcoEnclose products?
Last Updated: 06/26/2018
Our inks – on both our boxes and our mailers – are water-based.

Our box printing inks are called “hydrosoy” (that is their brand name) ink. These are water-based inks that use soy (versus petroleum) derived resin. Water is still the carrier, but the resin – which is an additive that helps improve adhesion, quality, etc – is made from soy.

Water based inks are almost always the type that are used in flexographic printing, which is the method we use.
