Pack Trax has introduced the Ink Cost Reference Index. This is a proprietary index which tracks ink input costs such as pigments, resins, intermediates and solvents.
Price Tracker provides subscribers with a three year price history for all materials for North America, Europe and Asia. We continue to add materials all the time. This data is provided in spreadsheet format so you can build charts and presentations.
