This is professional letterpress ink.
We’re big fans of Van Son for letterpress ink: it has an intense color strength; it’s consistent; and it’s quick setting. That’s why we use these inks exclusively in our own print shop. We offer two ink types, both well suited for letterpress. Use rubber-based inks for general letterpress printing—it’s the type of ink we use every day in our shop. Use the oil-based inks if you’d like a glossier ink that works well with coated papers (though you won’t be able to leave the ink on press overnight).
