Letterpress custom shopping/gift bags

We custom print a variety of custom gift and shopping bags for clients all over the nation from our Wayzata Press. Shown here is a navy blue bag with a metallic gold ink being run on Big Bertha.



Hand mixing ink

Ink is an important part of the letterpress and printing process here at Wayzata Press.  We exact match Pantone colors in two different ways depending on the client.  If it's a one time job with little chance for a re-run, we hand mix the ink to exacting tolerances.  If the client is likely to run more than one job, we buy the ink premixed in large quantities and keep it on the shelf.  Contact us today for your project.

Starting with process yellow from Mallard Ink Company in this case.

Adding blue to the yellow in measure portions.

Blue ink.

What was that ziplock commercial?  Yellow and blue make green?

Now we are getting somewhere.

Ready to go!



Pantone Matching Labels

Danish Teak Classics had us run these great 2" self adhesive labels for their shop.  Yes, we know it's not letterpress and rather offset printing, but these were too colorful not to include on our blog here.  We ran these with our AB Dick 9890 with Pantone 485 on an uncoated label sheet.
