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.

The benefits of solid ink

From greater ease-of-use to less waste, the benefits of solid ink are numerous. The simple design of solid ink technology means more simplicity for you—simple maintenance, less impact on the environment, fast print speeds and less worry.

  • Easy to Use No-mess ink sticks are easy and fun to load. Solid Ink printers have far fewer supplies for customers to replace than comparable laser devices.
  • Eco-Conscious Solid ink products produce 90% less waste than a comparable laser device. Every solid ink printer or multifunction printer includes a free license for GreenPrint software that helps eliminate unwanted prints, like headers, footers, blanks, etc.
  • Vibrant Color Quality Judge for yourself, request a free print sample.
  • Reliable Xerox has advanced solid ink technology for over 20 years. With fewer moving parts than comparable color laser printers, solid ink products provide robust reliability to keep your office productive with consistent high-volume, high-quality color output.
  • Cost-effective Xerox provides all of the above at the best price possible that is comparable if not better than most competitors in each product class.
