Our range includes:

GardSET is our traditional oil-based 2-phase quick setting ink range, designed for 4 colour printing
GardJET black inks deliver the ultimate in ‘jetness’ and density through a combination of high pigmentation, excellent dispersion, and the inclusion of high quality toners. Recommended for applications where conventional 4 colour process black may just fall short of the special properties demanded by mono printing, perfecting, varnishing or other finishing or technical requirements.
GardWEB inks are available in highly stable, low tack, lint-free coldset grades for newsprint, high gloss heatset for fast running over low temperature applications, and fast setting continuous stationery laser and thermal printhead over printable qualities – available in 4 colour process, Pantone Colours and specially matched colours as well as metallics, silver and gold, and fluorescents.
GardTONE is our product range name for inks conforming to the internationally recognised Pantone® Colour System, available in Pantone® Basic Colours, and PMS® intermixes, metallic (GardGEM) and fluorescent (GardGLO), pastel shades, and other PMS® variations. Available in all sheet and web-fed formats.
GardMATCH is our bespoke colour matching service, manufacturing special batches to the customer’s specification, featuring the supply of customer prints on supplied substrate, at agreed film weights.
The GardGLO range features a group of daylight fluorescent colours, in sheetfed, coldest and heatset web grades, conforming to the Pantone® Dayglo range of colours, and also in specially formulated grades for various applications. Characterised by easy running lithographic properties and strong vibrant shades.
GardGEM metallic Inks are available in all sheet and web printing grades, standard Silver is approved to PMS™ 877, and Golds from 871 through 876 – additionally the traditional Rich, Richpale, and Pale Golds are available, and again, where special non-standard shades are required, these can be made available through the GardMATCH™ system.
