Amazon.com Full-Color, Every Time. ZINK hAppy Smart App Printers™ work with the specially designed ZINK zRolls™. zRolls are the revolutionary ZINK Paper® in an adhesive-backed roll format. zRolls come in five different color-coded sizes: 3/8", 1/2", 3/4", 1", and 2". zRolls feature a special, acid-free adhesive that allows you to quickly and easily remove and reapply your design if placed incorrectly. Your design will become permanently secure over time. Print without ink. Yes, you did read that right. How it Works ZINK® stands for Zero Ink® - a technology that produces photo-quality, full-color print without using ink cartridges, ribbons, or toner. The technology encompasses both the ZINK Paper® within each zRoll™ and the intelligence embedded in every ZINK Smart APP Printer™ The fundamental concept is simple, yet extraordinary: Heat from the hAppy or hAppy+ activates the unique color-forming crystals embedded in the layers of ZINK Paper. Color then emerges to form a full-color print. ZINK Paper® -- Innovations in Physics The cyan, yellow, and magenta dye crystals that enable the magic of ZINK, were invented by ZINK Imaging scientists through a rigorous discovery process. Each molecule is finely tuned, colorless and invisible to the naked eye. When activated at very high temperatures for fractions of a second, the crystals move from colorless to colored to create beautiful images. When cooled, the crystals new color state is permanently retained. ZINK® Dye Crystals -- Magic MoleculesWith each zRoll is more than 19' of ZINK Paper®, an advanced composite material composed of multiple layers of color-forming chemistry. The multiple layers are coated as a think "stack" onto a base layer. A polymer coating protects the layers from moisture, UV exposure, and fading. Amazingly, all the layers combined is less than the thickness of a human hair. ZINK Paper looks like regular white photo paper until heat activates the different color layers independently to create full-color.
