Often referred to as “agri-based inks,”

vegetable oil-base inks are well suited for uncoated paper due to their low volatile organic compound (VOC) content. Biodegradable, they are made with renewable resources, such as soy, linseed, cottonseed, tung, or china wood oil. An example of the advantages: half of all soybeans produced in America need no irrigation. As soybeans are growing they temporarily remove damaging carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, from the atmosphere.

Vibrant colors

- Soybean oil’s clarity allows pigments to reach their full potential

Lower rub-off

- Soy inks show a greater rub resistance.

Soy ink is cost effective

- Soy ink provides more intense color, printers may not use as much ink.


- Toxins from petroleum base inks are harmful to breathe in (especially for people running the presses). Soy inks emit zero harmful toxins.
