Luscious Inks

Our sumptuous European inks are hand mixed with care right here in our studio. We work with 14 base inks to mix the perfect colours. We can even print without ink, or 'blind deboss' for a unique textual effect.

House inks - free

Select from one of our 50+ letterpress house inks. The shades cover a wide range of hues and tones, and perfectly compliment our collection designs. The range includes silver, gold and blind (no ink).

A swatch pack with a printed swatch of each shade is included in our sample packs. Or you can request a swatch pack when you place your order.

Custom blends - $35

If you would like a specific shade, you can choose a custom ink blend. We will hand mix a colour using our inks in just the right proportions to create any shade you choose.

Colour guides

To help you choose a custom blend, once you have placed your order we will send you one of our returnable colour guides (within Australia), which contains thousands of printed swatches of all of the colours we can mix and print. We will also include a pre-paid return satchel for you easily return the guide once you have chosen your inks.

The guide will allow you to select a colour first-hand, and match it to anything you are incorporating into your day. This will give you the widest possible range of choice, and allow you to select the perfect shade for your design.

The guide gives an accurate representation of your colour as printed. Many of the colours cannot be reproduced on a computer screen or with modern digital printing - regardless of how the colour is shown on your screen your design will be printed to match our guide.

Selecting the perfect ink

If you are unsure about which ink colours will suit your design and colour scheme, we are more than happy to give advice and recommendations on colourways for your design. During design consultation we can discuss the options that might suit you in more detail.
