The original Speedball Print Posse concept had our talented partner artists collaborating with the team at Speedball to formulate an ink in the color or unique formulation that they felt was ideally-suited for their vision and works. Most our Posse friends have opted to do just that and have been working hard with our folks in the lab to dial in their ink to be just right for their studios--but two Posse members actually opted to go the way of creating a limited edition paper perfect for their prints.
Speedball’s Posse Relief Inks are made from a water-miscible, oil base, and feature the highest quality pigments and no fillers. Offering a consistent rollout and magnificent print quality, these inks feature the working properties that professional artists demand all while cleaning up easily with soap and water or traditional window cleaner.
