    Laser printers do not use what I would consider a ink.

    I work for a High Profile manufacture of ink jet and laser printers, we have a BUILDING full of chemists formulating inks just for our products. Do you really think you can make a comparable product in your bathroom sink? The formulations for our products are highly proprietary, ie not given to any Joe blow on the street.
