Block Printing

The list below shows most of our sources for materials. A number of these companies offer products for sale online and information on printing techniques.


Graphic Chemical Ink Company. Most of inks we use are Graphic Chemical water-based inks. They provide rich color and great workability. Their thickness makes them the best choice for hand printing on soft blocks. They wash up easily with soap and water. We purchase them at Dakota Art Store in Seattle.

Daniel Smith Artists' Materials. Daniel Smith also has its own line of high quality block printing inks. Most of our blocks also come from here.

McClain's Printmaking Supplies. A block printer's paradise, with great, authentic blocks, tools, inks, and papers. Instruction materials are also available here.

Other suppliers of our cardmaking supplies include the University Book Store, Anchor Paper Express, Impress, and Impact Images.
