Versatile. Reliable. Responsible.

HP Latex ink and media

Not only do HP Latex printers deliver outstanding results on a wide range of media, the original water-based HP Latex inks can add value to differentiate your business and help your customers meet their sustainability goals.

HP Latex inks make a difference

Original HP inks are designed together with HP Latex printers to produce consistent results. With reliable performance, you can minimize waste and downtime. While non-HP inks may cost less per liter, they can cause frequent printhead replacement, unsellable prints, and increased printer downtime and maintenance.

Achieve amazing colors on both rigid and flexible with HP Latex inks

Sharpen the quality of any rigid substrate with the strong, vibrant color gamut of HP Latex inks, and a thin ink layer preserving media gloss, feel. Use original HP Latex inks to maximize the life of HP printheads and ensure HP warranty protection.

Designed for sustainable impact

In addition to delivering outstanding image quality, consistency, and durability, our latest generation of HP Latex inks offer an attractive environmental profile to both print service providers and customers:

  • Reach sensitive indoor spaces like healthcare—water-based HP Latex ink prints are odorless1 and low-emitting meeting UL GREENGUARD GOLD (unrestricted full room décor), AgBB criteria, and Émissions dans l’air intérieur (very low emitting A+)2

  • Making safer operations easier— no required hazard warning labels, avoid reactive monomer chemistry3, and HAPs.4

  • Meet stringent health and environmental criteria—HP Latex inks are UL ECOLOGO® certified5 and comply with toy safety requirements.6

  • Print on a wide variety of eco-conscious media choices, and deliver prints that are recyclable, returnable, or non-hazardous and safe for disposal.7


Plastic ink cartridges replaced with HP Eco-Carton ink cartridges3

  • The HP Eco-Carton ink cartridges reduce plastic by 80% and CO₂e by 66%.8

  • Zero landfill—local outer carton recycling, free take-back inner ink bag via HP Planet Partners.9

  • HP printers and supplies contain recycled plastics designed with post- consumer electronics, soda bottles, UL-validated ocean bound plastics, coat hangers and empty original HP ink cartridges.
