No More Inky Fingers and Dried Ink – Rubber & Oil Based Ink in Tubes
Because we get asked a lot if we sell ink in smaller quantities, not everyone wants 1Kg tins, we decided to see what we can do… so, we are now selling our popular No. Oil based printers ink and Rubber Based Letterpress ink in 100g tubes. This means you don’t have a vast amount of ink sitting on your shelves for millennia, that you may not use and there is less chance of it skinning in the tube! We currently have the tubes of letterpress ink in pantone colours in our store and now we have the metallics and fluorescents on there. Why don’t you click here and take a look
Not every letterpress printer has access to a hot foil machine or wants to. Instead you can use a very fine metallic bronzing powder to lift metallic ink which can sometimes look a little dark and flat on an uncoated board. When applied to a wet ink and then dusted off, you are left with a lovely sheen of shiny metal on top of your ink. Silver, Gold and Copper are now available through our store here. If you need any advice on how to use them please do get in touch.
