Making a better impression

Letterpress printers no longer have to doctor inks intended for other uses, like lithography or etching. Instead they can choose our dedicated letterpress inks, tailor-made for wood engraving and all letterpress printing.

This is a range of interesting subtly toned blacks designed to give nuanced printed results. Their simple, traditional formulation of pigments, finely ground in linseed oil, is designed with optimum viscosity to avoid ‘ink squash’, yet achieve good paper penetration resulting in a smooth and rich print.
