The ink laboratory

We have installed our ink laboratory at our CPI Colour site in Croydon, south London. Here, we develop specific ink formulations to meet our customers’ most exacting needs. In particular, it allows us to guarantee an identical colour rendering irrespective of the medium used.

This service is particularly appreciated by our retail customers, when for instance they want a perfect match between the colour of the product, the packaging and the publicity material.
