Central Ink's Current News




Central Ink Corporation will be increasing prices on printing inks, coatings, and pressroom chemistry products effective April 15th, 2021.

As the global economy begins its recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been various challenges to the global supply chain. Worldwide reductions in operating capacity coupled with stronger demand have led to supply shocks, price increases, longer lead times, and increased logistics costs for chemical materials used in the manufacturing of printing inks, coatings, and pressroom chemistry products. More acute issues such as the freeze in Texas have led to capacity shutdowns and declarations of force majeure. Domestically, upward pressure on several commodities such as soybean and linseed oils are also driving costs up.

We anticipate ink increase to be between 7 and 10 percent, dependent on product line. Pressroom chemistry will be handled by formula.



We are pleased to announce that on July 21st, Central Ink Corporation acquired substantially all of the assets of Impression Inks, in a private transaction. This acquisition represents a unique opportunity for Central Ink and Impression Inks to combine their strengths in manufacturing, formulation, distribution and technical services to the web offset market of the printing industry.

Impression Inks Ltd., headquartered in Ft. Worth, TX for the past 15 years, also has a manufacturing plant in Reno, NV. Impression Inks established itself as a major ink supplier in the newspaper and Heatset printing market. Lead by Jesse Samaniego and Bain Gilly, Impression Inks has kept their promise to providing consistent products with excellent customer service.

Our shared goal of delivering exceptional value, unparalleled service, and consistent quality makes for a winning combination for all customers.
