Cranfield Colours
     
Welcome to Cranfield Colours!

We have been making printing inks for more than thirty-five years and remain an independent company offering a competent and reliable service.

For the growing number of printers who are interested in environmental care, Cranfield were amongst the first ink makers in the UK to achieve ISO14000. Being ahead of the game, Cranfield achieved the accolade of Welsh Environmental Company of the Year in 2001, long before ‘Green credentials’ became an essential requirement for business survival.

Cranfield’s primary reputation is as a reliable manufacturer and supplier of conventional Printing Inks and Coatings with competent and practical technical support and laboratory research.

Cranfield is one of the few independent ink manufacturers that have the facilities and experience to make printing inks from dry pigment colours. This means we can control every aspect of ink formulation and production – starting from the initial selection of raw materials, right through to the filling and sealing of tin, cartridge, bucket or barrel!

Cranfield Colours is part of a group whose other members; Spectrum Artists' Paint www.spectrumoil.com and Caligo Printmaking Inks www.caligoinks.com make for a colourful world!
