Block Printing Ink
I am new to lino cutting and block printing so I have nothing to compare the inks to except maybe an ink pad. The colors are bright and clear and go on easy. I am happy with my purchase and yes they are better than my ink pad. I got a really good deal from Dick Blick. So I am pleased all the way around.

I'm using these inks for monoprinting. Ink is thick, rolls out nicely and colors are vibrant. No complaints.
The standard for block printing inks
By nature printer
from Brainerd, MN
Years ago, I began nature printing with this product and over the years, it has never failed me. Superb color coverage, excellent smoothness, whether I am using a brayer or a dauber. I always use it in workshops and recommend it to everyone.
Love this Ink
from Columbus, OH
I use these inks for handmade stamps and they work great. You can mix them to make great colors. Sometimes I add a bit of water to thin them out a little, but all in all they're great as is. The colors are vibrant and I'm glad I got the variety, as I couldn't quite mix a great violet with the red and blue, but the violet provided is a good one. I've never used them for anything but stamping, but they're great for what I need!
I use SB inks, even though it seems to be something artists are reluctant to admit. I started with them, I know them, and how they act.. I will say they dry very very quickly. I love them and hate them for this trait..I love that you can get several layers done in a day because they dry on the paper quickly but am sometimes frustrated that the inks dry in the glass befor I am done printing. I have to use a lof retarder to keep the ink workable. I recommend buying the extender and retarder from the SB print master line as they are cheaper and come in larger tubes.
Speedball Water - Based Block Printing Ink

Great colors and coverage as I would expect from Speedball a trusted company that I use for other quality art products. I use these inks for my linocuts and love how my prints come out and the vibrancy of the colors.
My Go-To Ink
By Printer Nora
from St Paul, MN
A variety of colors at extremely reasonable prices. Easy to mix and blend. Easy to clean up, even days later. I especially like the Printmasters, I use the Extender in almost everything.
