Specially Formulated Inks for Letterpress Printing

We carry a wide selection of rubber and oil based inks suitable for letterpress. At the end of this listing are the basic Pantone fan decks for color matching for coated and uncoated paper. We can also furnish Pantone ink books for Metallics and Pastels, and Tints and 4-color Process. These are all new and current books.

We have temporarily discontinued the 1/4 pound tubes of ink and the very popular ink assortment of these tubes. We have been having considerable difficulty in obtaining sufficient quantities of this product from the manufacturer.

"Cobalt Drier, 1 pound can"
With cobalt drier, a "little dab will do you." A one pound can will last the typical letterpress printer through your grandchildren, as only a small drop is typically added to ink--too much and the ink will not dry, or it takes several days to dry. Cobalt drier is a thick liquid. Typically. most inks already contain sufficient drier for proper ink drying, so that Cobalt Drier is added only when problems develop with drying because of any number of problems--temperature, humidity, moisture content of paper, etc.
