Budget Inks LLC was started as a division of Off Contact Products, which is a successful wide format digital printer, founded in 1999. in 2003 we started a vehicle wrapping division called Budget Wraps. Budget Wraps is a wholesale production house making high quality digital graphics for many commercial market segments (i.e. vehicle graphics including fleet trailers, commercial and transit graphics) and also sells into the sign industry for exterior applications, banners, POP graphics, exhibits and trade show displays. Off Contact Products and Budget Wraps division is a print for pay model that has been profitable for over 14 years. As with most print for pay businesses, one of our largest expenses besides the media we print on is the costs our digital inks.
Off Contact Products / Budget Wraps goal was to reduce the costs associated with buying inks without affecting the print quality and durability. As we searched for new equipment we found that if you spend $250,000+ you can buy ink under $100.00 a liter, In our case we run multiple printers (Seiko 64s and HP 9000’s) and are stuck paying over $225.00 per cartridge. Our ink search started and we searched far and wide for a for a high quality replacement. Our goal was to not only find ink that worked, but to have the color gamut match our existing one and of course to have the lasting durability of our OEM products. In the fall of 2006, after a long search we found InkJet Systems located in Singapore.
Spring of 2008 we launched Budget Inks selling HP 9000 and Seiko 64s ink cartridges. Then in April 2010 Budget Inks expanded our scope of quality ink manufactures including USA made products. All Budget Ink products are engineered with plug and print quality, no flushing required. Reliability and durability you can count on and of course 100% guaranteed...
