Re: [PPLetterpress] inks
- Harry--The minimum order is $10.00, so no problem here. We have other oil
inks, which are all letterpress based formulas, it's just that the
Hostmann-Steinberg is by comparison a superior ink. Our regular job black
works fine for most ordinary work, and once in a while, a gloss black is
desirable, which the H-S ink is not.
Our latest catalog is dated 1999, and prices have been changed mostly. We
have added the Bunting magnetic bases for photopolymer, at good prices, and
have been recasting ATF type--Garamond, Bulmer, Goudy Oldstyle, Engravers
Roman. The Vandercook list in the catalog is just the surface of what we
have, and since we have the Vandercook blueprint file, we furnish parts all
the time made to special order. And we can find almost everything else.
I'll just go ahead and process this order and pay from the invoice which
will be included with the package, usually in the plastic envelope that has
the UPS shipping label. My business partner went to UCSB, (and graduated
from UC Davis) so he'll be happy to hear his old school is buying something.
