Living Ink is a biomaterials company on a mission to use sustainable algae technologies to replace petroleum-derived products, such as ink. Founded by two CSU PhD students in the cell and molecular biology program, they created a research and product company that developed the first environmentally safe and sustainable printing ink grown from algae.


Living Ink is changing the way ink is made by using algae as pigments for ecofriendly ink products. The vision is to develop a variety of ink products and colors, including digital ink. Currently, screen, letterpress and offset ink is being developed and refined.


Stationary, packaging, custom printing and business cards are all available with the world’s most sustainable algae ink
