Let GWI be your partner for all your packaging applications. We offer a unique combination of color expertise, product expertise and application expertise. We have mass-produced solutions to help you get the lowest cost/highest value solution and custom products that can help improve your operations and give you a competitive edge.

Most “mega ink” companies offer mass-produced products with very little local support. At GWI, we offer the best of all worlds. It’s why we’re one of the few remaining independent ink companies that continue to rapidly expand.

We offer a full array of products for the following types of packaging:

  • Folding Carton
  • Plastics (no sleeves)
  • Corrugated

Let us help you with common issues such as achieving brand-critical color, eliminating cracking and adhesion, and so much more.

GWI services approximately half of the forms markets on the West Coast. We offer a complete line of forms inks, including metallic and fluorescents for UV curable applications, rotary inks and inks for conventional forms applications.

Offset-Based Forms Inks

There are two ways to make forms ink:

  • Use a cheap solvent-based news ink formula and mix in additives to body it up or
  • use a high-quality, sheet-fed based varnish and pigment system to create a very good forms ink system.

GWI has been manufacturing ink since 1925, so you can count on us to take the high road and provide you with the top quality you’ll find anywhere, for only a marginal price increase over the also-ran products on the market.
