Vintage Oil Based Ink

UPDATE: Another 16 colors available in addition to the initial 27 colors previously posted. Now available individually or create your own special order. Colors include manufacturer mixed Pantones, along with a few Process, Metallics & Neons.

Last year I came across a huge lot of ink circa late 1980s / early 1990s. Many cans still sealed and in excellent condition. Over 100 Pantone colors. I’ve started breaking down the lot and currently have 27 colors available in sets of 3-8oz cans. More colors will become available as I hand mix and repack in my spare time.


A portion of the proceeds from purchases will be donated to the Letterpress Depot in Englewood Colorado. A nonprofit project to build a museum of letterpress and book arts in the original 1915 Englewood train depot building.

Message me if interested or check out my website for more information. Inquiries and questions welcome.
