We have 19 new letterpress inks, making a total of 68 colors available! Since colors vary from screen to screen, we recommend visiting one of our exclusive retailers to see and touch the true swatches before placing your order, but here’s a glance at the range:
Within the full palette are 14 opaque letterpress inks, all with a slight shimmer. Our opaque inks have a subtle sheen and are ideal for printing on colored papers & envelopes. Please note that the only inks in this section available as edge painting are black, silver, gold & copper.
Our opaque inks are the perfect match for another new custom detail highlighted in our 2012 update — duplexed colored papers — which we will be sharing even more about over the next week. We’ve been hard at work testing our new letterpress inks on the colored papers available in our line. Here’s a sneak peek of some fun test swatches hot off the press!
Also, we now offer edge painting to match any letterpress ink color! That means you now have 5 times the options to choose from! Are you getting as excited as we are about all of the amazing new ways to bring color into your next print project?!
Last but not least, if you aren’t seeing what you are looking for here, we offer custom letterpress and edge painting ink mixes! Ask your local Dauphine Press exclusive retailer for more information if you are interested in a color customized just for you.
