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!
