12408Re: proofing ink source?
- Mar 1, 2011Hi,
I'm selling, Ink in Tubes. We have a black rubber based ink. It's a 1/4 pound of ink in a tube for 11.50. I'll have to check your zip code to get a definite price for shipping, I'm guess it would be 5 bucks.
and 10.95 worse case scenario if I ship it in a medium flat rate box.
Let me know if you're interested. I've only got oil based in stock for immeditate shipping, but I'll be picking up more ink this week from Dave Robison (the ink in tubes guy).
