Chief Ink Maker Peter Welfare comparing the pigment’s gooey “vehicle” to honey?

That’s a dude that loves his job, impressive.

Gorgeous video. As soon as he said, “about” I knew he was countryman. Sure enough, “The Printing Ink Company: Rycoline Inc”, Vaughan Ontario.

I’d kill to have a sit down with this guy and discuss the shortcomings of CMYK versus various 6-colour processes.

It’s a gorgeous video, but it doesn’t show them extracting the unicorn tears that make inkjet printer ink so expensive.


#5

How do those guys stay so clean? Every print shop I’ve ever been in is much messier.


#6

Beautiful.

Canada

You ever watch someone do their job or just any mundane task and then really really wonder how they fuck?

Beautiful. I had this compulsion to dive into a vat of that yellow ink the whole time.


#12

That guy is really doing it the hard way.


#13

It’s like that crayon factory Mr. Rogers short for adults.


#14

That video was made by my friend Ian Daffern, a Canadian film-maker, comic book author and all around cool dude.


#15

That was a really cool video. I expected to like it, but not as much as I did. And that’s not just because it’s a Canadian company.
