    I received my order, thank you for your great customer service..



    It is not often people write emails or letters of praise but consider this one of the rare ones!
    I must say, ordering your product was about the easiest imaginable. Coupled with the fact that it arrived here basically “next day” I am thoroughly happy. To tell you the truth, I was expecting to have to go pay full retail for one black cartridge thinking that your’s would take at least a week to arrive but I was wrong, the order arrived before I could even go out to get one!
    Congrats people, I WILL tell all my friends and neighbours about you!

Finch Paper announces new inkjet web paper specific for dye-based systems

Glens Falls, NY – Finch Paper today debuts Finch dyeJet for precision printing on dye-based inkjet systems, making the announcement in concert with the unveiling of its comprehensive digital paper program. Finch dyeJet completes the digital paper product line that already includes Finch Fine iD for HP Indigo (liquid toner) presses, and the already highly-acclaimed Finch Inkjet Pi for pigmented inkjet systems.
The Finch dyeJet revolution
Paper manufacturers have long been challenged with drying issues associated with dye-based inks in the burgeoning high speed inkjet segment.  Finch has solved the issue with a specially–engineered paper formulation including a surface treatment to maximize ink density and absorption, resulting in instantaneous drying at speeds as high as 750 ft./m.
Finch dyeJet’s smooth surface provides brilliant full color, CMYK digital printing.  It delivers better print densities for improved response rates, and fast-drying for increased production rates. Finch dyeJet features the stability and strength necessary for downstream perforating, folding and inserting applications.
Most commercial inkjet presses that incorporate dye-based inks are best matched with Finch dyeJet. These include, but are not limited to: Screen Truepress Jet520, InfoPrint 5000, Kodak Versamark, Océ JetStream 2200 and 3300.
Phil Hart, Finch Paper Director of Product Marketing, says, "Finch is proud to continue to serve the needs of the expanding digital printing marketplace. After the introduction of Finch Inkjet Pi last fall, our growing R&D team has again produced a superior uncoated substrate, this time balancing its focus on dye-based applications."
Finch dyeJet Specifications
– 94 brightness
– Diamond White shade
– Super smooth (100 sheffield)

Finch created Finch dyeJet to give printers the ability to deliver better color with lower total costs for print-on-demand books, transpromo printing, and direct mail.
Finch dyeJet is commercially available in 24 lb./60 lb. text, 28 lb./70 lb. text, and 32 lb./80 lb. text. Finch offers a variety of roll sizes and custom solutions to fit specific application and print engine needs. Finch dyeJet is also available with up to 30% post-consumer recycled fiber and FSC certification.


Inkjet Printer Ink I (Dyes and Pigments)

Thursday, January 04, 2007


Dye based inks are manufactured by dissolving them in purifies water based compounds. They offer a wide variety of color choices and are significantly easier to manufacturer than pigment based inks. Their major disadvantage is that they tend to soak into the paper and consequently spread out more, there bye reducing their overall brilliance, and sharpness.


Pigments by contract do not dissolve in the water solution, but are suspended (Float) in the solution. As a result the brilliance of the pigment is not reduced, and the pigments do not typically soak into the paper when printed by they remain on the surface. Pigment based inks are more lightfast/colorfast making them more suitable for archival/photo purposes. Pigments tend to be costlier to use and they can also clog printer nozzles accordingly.
