Welcome to dickblick
Speedball Professional Relief Inks are artist-quality, oil-based, water-miscible printmaking inks. Containing only the highest-quality pigments in a transparent base, they are ideal for creating crisp, intense prints with archival qualities.
Speedball talked to hundreds of printmakers to achieve the working properties professional relief artists desire, such as the ability to hold details, the correct amount of tack, a high degree of blendability, and extreme lightfastness. As a result, Speedball Professional Relief Inks roll out consistently, transfer beautifully, and hold even the finest details. Plus, they clean up easily with water, eliminating the need for harsh solvents.
The flagship of the line is Supergraphic Black, created in collaboration with world-renowned relief artist Bill Fick, who says Speedball Professional Relief Inks give him the ability to concentrate on making the image rather than troubleshooting. When printing hundreds of prints, Fick says he has no concerns about the ink drying or clogging up the block, which makes printing "a real joy."
Speedball Professional Relief Inks contain no fillers.

My new favorite ink
from Jacksonville, fl
Comments about Speedball Professional Relief Ink:
Hands down my new favorite ink! I've been using waterbased inks for a couple years now, but have been having some issues with my previous brand. Upon trying speedballs, my first impressions are that the ink is super creamy, functions like oil ink, colors are vibrant even when dried, and ink binber doesn't seep out of ink into paper(which is an issue a had with another ink) I do wish they made a brown, but all an all if your looking for a great waterbased ink, give these a try
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a great classroom ink!
Because is it oil-based it doesn't dry quickly (less ink waste) but is still an easy water and soap clean up!
from Vicksburg, MS
I really have no complaints about this ink. I use it for hand printing linocuts and it's fabulous. So far, I've used the Supergraphic Black and the Crimson Red. Nice and velvety. Cleans up very easily.

Great Ink - feels like oil based inks.
from Deer Isle, ME
Used this ink to print wood blocks. Nice and sticky like oil based ink, good saturation and cleaned up easily with water. Had been looking for a new ink to replace an ink no longer manufactured and this fit the bill.
