I've been using Speedball products since high school. I love their screenprinting and block printing kits and inks!Emily Claire Sáez Virginia
Speedball Fabric Block Printing Ink is the best! I block print kitchen towels and need to make sure my printed patterns stay on the towels over many, many washes. The Speedball Fabric Block Printing Ink has never failed me!Courtney Beyer Menlo Park, CA
I love the workability of Akua Inks, the luscious colors and easy cleanup. They work for all my favorite printmaking methods--intaglio,monotype, gel printing--and are wonderful to use in the classroom!Amy Nack Boise, ID
The Supergraphic Black Professional Relief Ink astounds me ever time with its rich black inking abilities. It is incredibly smooth to roll out and prints evenly with a rich black quality. Since I burnish all of my prints by hand, Supergraphic Black has been a game changer for my prints. The clean up is also ideal. It’s not every day that you find a high-quality, oil-based ink that cleans up with soap and water. This makes the ink perfect for home and studio use.Sarah Reed-McNamara Rockford, IL
I exclusively use Speedball’s Acrylic Screen Printing Ink for all my printing. The saturation of the colors is second to none – they mix very well so that I can create very specific hues as well as regulate the opacity and transparency of the inks. The consistency is just right for screen printing – especially for me, since I still pull all my prints by hand.James Flames Asheville, NC
