We never really though food would cross paths so closely with our injet printer (on purpose, at least... spilled coffee doesn't count). But then we heard about what Raw Color did:

They developed a way to use vegetable pigments to replace the standard colors in an inkjet cartridge. Cyan is replaced by the ink from red cabbage, yellow by pumpkin, and magenta by beetroot.

We love the natural tinge to the range of colors derived from veggies. Just beautiful, and no shortage of inspiration for fall colors straight from the garden. See more at Raw Color.
