Inks & Supplies

DCS's Multisolve™ Inks are proprietary, solvent-modified CMYK inks that have been designed for use specifically with your Direct Jet Printer. Our inks print directly onto your substrate without the need for pre-spray, priming or pre-coating – even in bright white. Multisolve Inks also utilize a refillable cartridge delivery system to cut down on waste and expense. Our new Direct Jet 1024UVMVP printer takes ink management to another level with a best in class Bulk Ink System™ that allows for 100% utilization of available ink.

DCS is not only a printer manufacturer, but additionally offers cleaning supplies and other accessories (tacky mats; trays/jigs for CDs, golf balls, baseballs, pens and mint tins; and replacement parts) for use with your Direct Jet Printer. We also offer marketing materials to help you promote your printer's advanced capabilities.

Substrates

Working hand-in-hand with our Multisolve inks, we offer InkMark™, a unique line of coated substrates that are optimized to simultaneously accept our IR4 dye and clear solvent ink in a single pass. Combined with a Direct Jet solvent printer, InkMark makes for a more durable image.

For use with our UV printers, DCS offers InkMark UV Plastics and InkMark UV Metals. These substrates require no pre-coating. Images printed on InkMark UV with a Direct Jet UV are highly durable and resistant against abrasives and solvents.

DCS also offers a variety of other blank substrates for use with your Direct Jet solvent or UV printer, including: PVC Sheets, Non-Coated Metal Sheets, Acrylic Blanks, Plaques & Awards and Ad Specialty Items.
