What is solid ink?


Solid ink is a proven color printing technology only offered by Xerox. A solid ink printer or multifunction printer uses solid sticks (or blocks) of no-mess, non-toxic ink instead of toner or inkjet cartridges. Solid ink is easy to use, provides cost-effective, vivid color and its environmental impact is substantially better than comparable laser products. Xerox's unique expertise and leadership in solid ink technology provides incredible value for customers in cost, print quality and productivity.
