VerifyMe And INX International Ink Company Form A Strategic Partnership

VerifyMe’s Security Ink Expands to 95% of the Label and Packaging Market

INX International is going to co-develop inkjet inks to be used for inkjet printing in combination with high speed, high volume label and packaging printing presses called “flexo” or “roll fed” printing presses.
