Ink Usage Calculator
The fast and easy way to calculate your ink needs!

This estimator allows you to estimate your ink requirements using estimated coverage's.

Estimate the percentage of solid coverage's (make adjustments as needed for gradient screens, odd shaped images etc.)

Please keep in mind, due to the myriad of variables ( print density, ink/water balance, stock variation, operator preference, etc) ink usage will vary from job to job. Although the calculations used in this estimator are believed to be accurate your actual ink requirements may be more or less than the estimated amount.
