Colours of printer ink

Colours of printer ink

  Colour is where the world of creativity and the world of science intersect, at least for most of us. In primary school we are introduced to colour combinations - mix red and blue, and you get purple. Later we learned that you mix red, blue and yellow paint and you get black - but mix red, blue and yellow light, and you get white. It’s a kind of magic. It’s the magic that makes printers possible. If we needed a thousand cartri... Read More
