When might I order a custom letterpress ink?
- We suggest a custom mix if you’re going to be printing the same color ink over an extended period of time (for instance, the inks you offer in a letterpress wedding invitation collection). If you order a custom ink of 466U, you’ll know when you need to reorder it a year later it will look exactly the same.
- You’re printing with very light colors or a pastel ink. The formulas for such inks require very precise measurements (.2% yellow plus 99.5% trans white, etc.) and it’s challenging to mix these colors accurately yourself.
