Custom Mixed Inks

If you just can’t find a Pantone, Toyo, or DIC ink to match the color you want, your print service provider can custom-mix an ink that’s just right for your job. Expect to pay more for this service since it involves extra labor and may consume extra ink (mixed as insurance for the print service provider). If you anticipate reprinting the job at a later date, tell the print service provider up front so they can retain the recipe for future use. It’s not practical to “mix enough for later.” Unlike wine, ink does not improve with age.
