ZINK printing is a technology developed by ZINK imaging, which makes it possible to produce full-color digital images without ink cartridges, ribbons, or toners. Colors appear on the special ZINK paper with the help of thermal paper. Some of the key advantages of ZINK printing over traditional printing are that the printing method is quick and does not require ink.
