Is it worth it in an educational environment?

Although there’s still a large amount of the technically fantastic highly pigmented Marabu colours in store, we decided to switch to waterbased inks because of the solvents. More healthy and pleasant for students and staff.


Sebek Inks from Belgium has a fairly standard color chart (Sebastar 103 series) for a waterbased ink brand. Compared to solvent based products, you just have to be more creative adjusting the standard colours yourself. And all colours dry matted. But that you can fix using waterbased gloss!


Cutting and rilling sheets. Dividing and compiling booklets. Folding covers.
