- Mar 2, 2011Hi,
I understand Gans Inks rubber line is a good ink to use with letterpress. I just got a lb. and will give it a try soon. They also have facilities throughout the country.

After several months of "lurking," I finally have a question for
the list. Can anyone suggest a favorite brand of non-drying
proofing ink (black), and can anyone suggest a relatively economical
source for the same?
In searching online, I found two brands, Harley and Mosstype.
I'm not sure how they differ. (I also found Charbonnel black
proofing ink, but it was considerably more expensive and seemed
directed to the printmaking community.)
In looking for a source, I discovered that you could order directly
from Harley, but that an $18 bottle cost over $20 to ship. The only
other source I found (APR Flexo) had a $100 minimum order.
My needs are quite small - I just need a single tube of black
I'll actually be proofing from metal type with this, not PP,
but I'm asking the question here rather than LETPRESS because
the market for proofing inks today seems (from what I can tell)
to be in flexography/photopolymer.
Thanks for any suggestions.
