An ink comprising a dye and monomer has been formulated
to have the density and viscosity required for a type of
gravure printing. The ink, which is capable of being
cured in one second by irradiation, dries quickly by

absorption and appears suitable for high speed printing
with minimum offset,

The ink has been reduced to practice by preparing the
following formulation:
