InkMark™ is a unique new line of coated printing substrates that are optimized to simultaneously accept DCS's Multisolve™ dye and clear inks in one pass. This allows the InkMark coating to catalyze with the DCS CMYK and clear Multisolve inks to create a bond that provides a more durable image with greater resistance to many perfumes and solvents, including 100% isopropyl alcohol. Your digital printing material has never been so durable. Applications for InkMark include:

  • Safety signs
  • Name badges
  • Business cards
  • Recognition awards
  • Interior signage
  • Desk plates and door plates
  • Machine tags and labeling
  • Bag tags

InkMark products are available in ABS and DR Acrylic. Both are available in the stock sizes listed below. Custom-cut sizes of any shape or size of digital printing material are also available.

InMark ABS products are for shear cutting and rotary engraving your digital printing material. DR Acrylic plastics are for laser marking and profiling printing substrates. Custom-cut pieces are also available upon request. Please contact DCS for custom on-site coating applications.

All products are stocked in .030" and .057" thicknesses. Other colors and thicknesses are available with minimums.

InkMark is not for use with Multisolve™ UV LED IR2 inks.
