ZINK = Zero INK
Yes, that’s right. No INK cartridge or ribbons are needed. It is a technique for color printing.
How to print?
It’s secret is inside the paper. The printer basically using some kind of chemistry, engineering, physics, image science, or manufacturing whatsoever, to make the color inside the paper to appear. So the color come out from the PAPER!
ZINK printers like WASABI PRINTER is super small. It can be as small as a external hard drive, which is completely portable.
Simply you just have to connect your digital camera, computers to the printer, or use wireless function to connect your mobile to the printer, whatever is capable with USB or wireless.
Imagine, ZINK can totally replace the instant camera!!!
It’s smaller, it has better quality, it has better compatibility, it’s more environmental friendly, and most importantly, it looks much cooler!!! 🙂
