"A few years ago, black and white printing was left to the ability of the printer to change the output using the gray scale setting of the printer to print black and white prints, much like a text document," according to Bob Zeiss, owner of Inksupply. Unfortunately, the result was a print with many color ink jet dots embedded in the photo. Many photo artists also discovered this and sought methods to print with black ink only.

Becuase of these limitations Inksupply.com found a group of inkjet artists that wanted to explore black and white printing using only black ink. Simultaneous to this group's development, there was a larger number of users that sought to print black and white prints using a gray scale ink set. This second group desired the ability for a larger tonal range including Cool Tone, Neutral Tone, Warm and Sepia Tone prints, and everything in between. These groups rank as professional Tier 3 and to fulfill their wishes, Inksupply.com supports a number of various ink sets to achieve results for all types of output. Inksupply.com covers the evolution of these ink sets, from Quadtone Inks, a term they coined many years ago, to the latest and greatest Ultratone ink sets on their web site at inksupply.com.
