Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

Dave Hughes

I'm sure there are a lot of printers out there who don't really know how their printing ink is made or what goes into it.

This superb video from The Printing Ink Company sheds some light on the process.

I don't know what it is about printing ink. I find it quite mesmerising, watching the gloopy colours mixed together.

After watching this I'm sure to be treating printing ink with a little more respect.
