Ink is a fluid or paste substance that contains pigments or dyes and is used to produce text, images or designs in printing and other artistic methods.

The composition of ink varies, with formulations designed to serve specific types of printing, such as offset, digital, or flexographic.

Some key types of ink include solvent-based, water-based, UV and eco-solvent.

The choice of ink can significantly affect the quality, durability, and finish of a printed item.
