A TEN YEAR OLD CAN OF
DRIED INK FROM ABOVE

 

 

Reddit user scruffycoxendale took this fascinating top-down view of a can of dried ink that he says has been sitting on the shelf of his print shop for a decade.

He goes on to mention that the hypnotic pattern is likely just on the surface and that underneath the top layer the ink should be fine. This type of ink is used in offset printing which Wikipedia describes as:

A commonly used printing technique in which the inked image is transferred (or “offset”) from a plate to a rubber blanket, then to the printing surface. When used in combination with the lithographic process, which is based on the repulsion of oil and water, the offset technique employs a flat (planographic) image carrier on which the image to be printed obtains ink from ink rollers, while the non-printing area attracts a water-based film (called “fountain solution”), keeping the non-printing areas ink-free.

 

For those curious, the PMS colour is 201 🙂
