Our Mission and Our Commitment to the Environment 

Our many years of pressroom experience has given us a broad approach to providing the right ink to each application. Our passion for product excellence and dedication to service is something our customers know they can count on. At Mallard Ink, we are also committed to the environment - we constantly strive to lessen our environmental impact. Our soy-based bioseries inks contain no less than 60% renewable content, while our naturally pigmented soy litho inks contain nearly 93% renewable content! Additionally, a third of the energy we use to produce our ink is generated from the 210 panel, 30 kWh solar array on our St Anthony ink plant (see below). This, along with high efficiency lights and motors further reduces the environmental impact of Mallard Ink's products.  

 

From day one in 1984, we've developed a reputation throughout the printing industry as the place to go for all the right answers when it comes to product knowledge and the ability to apply that knowledge to specific printing situations.
