Seems Like I’m Beating the Same Drum

Monday, January 19th, 2009

I’m not just talking through my hat here, and I’m not trying to make this blog a political statement. It’s just that the overseas printing question has come up again.

I remember seeing a printed sample from China some years ago shown to me by a local paper merchant. They were comparing the China piece to a similar one printed domestically. There was no doubt, the Chinese printing was astonishingly brighter especially in the reds. When they asked me if I knew why there was such a difference I had to confess that I didn’t know. That’s when I was informed that the pigments used, especially the reds, are banned in the US but not in China.

Do they still use those inks? I don’t know for sure and I’ve been searching the big I to see if there is any recent information on the subject. I do know that toy importing with through a big furor a couple of Christmases ago because of lead based paints. Paints and inks are not the same, but still it makes you wonder doesn’t it? If anyone has more definitive information on this subject I would like to hear about it.
