Screen-Printers NEVER spray color ink onto film positives!

All Black Ink™…
• is single, multiple or all slots of cartridges with Freehand formulated black dye
• works in conjunction with AccuRIP’s multi-black feature
• transforms a color printer into a dedicated film output device
• uses an exclusive UV light-blocking custom formulation
• delivers the highest density (D-Max)
• is easy to install and operate
• is flexible…turn on/off any slot combinations
• helps prevent clogs from idle slots (unused colors)

At Freehand, we don’t use just any old dye…

Freehand manufacturers dye specifically for screen-print film making.The dye that fills your All Black Ink™ cartridges and is also available in bottles for bulk system users, is our very own D-Max Ink™ formulation.

Inkjet Ink must be more than black…it must block UV light for exposing proper screens for screen-printing. What happens during screen-exposure is critically important to your print production success.

Why All Black Ink?
All Black Ink™ (ABI) started as a brilliant concept for dramatically improving film output efficiency, and was engineered to be an efficient product for screen-printers. The brain child of Freehand’s CEO, Charlie Facini, ABI is the favorite money-saving bulk ink system of screen-printers.

Don’t put any black cartridge in a color slot, that will damage your cartridges/chips and printer, and will not work. The All Black Ink product provides UV light blocking BLACK DYE for each slot in convenient cartridges. 

Why is AccuRIP Software required?

An inkjet sprays ink onto film. AccuRIP Software controls the unique ability to accurately spray ink from each slot (once designated for specific colors) so each droplet sprayed is black dye ink. Inkjets are engineered for color composite output. It is AccuRIP Black Pearl and All Black Ink together that transform your color printer into an efficient film output device.

Insert the All Black Ink carts and turn on the Multi-black feature in the AccuRIP Setup Menu and start printing better films and save money too!

How do I get started?

With AccuRIP v1.03 and AccuRIP Black Pearl Software, a supported Epson Inkjet model, and genuine All Black Ink cartridges you are ready to be more productive and save money. Be smart, since ink is a consumable and art projects vary, make sure you have a replacement set of ink on the shelf. Busy shops with smaller inkjet printers will need replacements sooner than low volume shops with high capacity printers.

How is it priced?

The volume of dye and the number of slots determines the cost of an ink set. You’ll appreciate that the pricing is right in line with or lower than all other ink lines. You receive greater value and bigger savings from formulated dye in comparison to pigment ink that requires heavier ink lay-down to block light. Below is a list of All Black Ink supported models, specifications and pricing.
