Wood & Linoleum Block Printing

Favorite Products

I have used many lino cutters and to this day I prefer the small wooden handles with a #2 v gouge and a #5 U-gouge to get everything done! They feel best in my hands and I don’t have to worry if I lose them because they are super inexpensive!

I am currently using Speedball Professional Relief Ink! Aside from the great saturation and detail, the amount of ink I need compared to water-based ink is incredibly small! It is an incredible value and makes the work process so much smoother especially when working in high volume!
