Thursday Press - bespoke letterpress printers


The inks we use...

The inks are made from a blend of mineral and vegetable oils. So after scraping most of the ink off our equipment when we've finished for the day, we can wash up using soap and water.

The pigments are modern and safe - no heavy metals here!

As the inks are oil based they take longer to dry - ideally a week (but less when we have a hot summer!). For this reason we cannot dispatch any item before it has completely dried so that we don't risk it being smudged or sticking to the glass when framed.

These swatches show some of our most popular colours but there are over 40 more available for bespoke work.
