Founded in 1983, H.W. Sands Corp. offers a variety of dyes, inks, and chemical solutions for Screen, Gravure, and Flexography printing servicing clients and customers all over the world.
During the initial years, H.W. Sands emerged as a supplier of inks and dyes primarily for the imaging industry. This industry created and dedicated its focus to the capture, the transmittance, and the reproduction of various images: medical X-ray films, camera films, ink jet printers, photocopiers and printing plates.
H.W. Sands Corp has grown to encompass all areas in printing with our high-quality custom dyes and inks. From silver halides to electrophotography to OLEDs, we supply only the highest quality products.
Our expertise lies in the working knowledge of liquid chemistry that allowed us to develop and manufacture the first translucent inks for bank transaction (credit, debit, and ATM) cards. This advancement has revolutionized the card market and solidified our role in the industry. H.W. Sands Corp. has continued to expand the card line to include functional inks & dyes (NIR/UV-Vis), decorative features (EZ Texture / Scratch & Sniff), and security solutions.
