Ink Innovations Portfolio


Eastern Tech Company has invested millions in R&D, Production, and Quality Control equipment to further Ink Innovations.

Eastern Tech is a pioneer of water-based pigmented ink for writing instruments. Today, we are a global leader in the manufacture of inks for gel-ink pens, which are sold in the largest retail chains in the United States and abroad.

Eastern Tech has manufactured water-based pigmented ink for inkjet printing directly onto t-shirts and other textiles. Our chemists have effectively improved color vibrancy, washability, and printer maintenance. Along with specially formulated pretreatment and cleaning solution products, Eastern Tech offers the complete solution for the “direct-to-garment” industry.

Most recently, Eastern Tech has partnered with OEM flatbed printer manufacturers to launch the latest UV and UV-LED curable inkjet ink technologies. Compatible with piezoelectric printhead equipment, Eastern Tech’s UV and UV-LED inkjet inks are instantly cured onto a variety of substrates, including plastics, glass, metals, and more. Many difficult-to-print substrates are now in play, even without the use of primers or pretreatments. The possibilities of UV-LED inkjet printing are growing, and Eastern Tech is leading the development in Ink Innovations.
