INK SELECTION
When you close your eyes, what are the colours you see for one of the most important days you will share together with your loved one? Colour is capable of capturing a myriad of subtle moods, feelings and memories. The first day you met, the smell of spring, the romance of a candlelit dinner on an island at sunset. To us, colour is the single most important element in an invitation. It brings life to the paper in which it is printed on.

At 9SpotMonk, we use very little ink in our studio, no more than 10 to 15 pounds a year. An entire wedding suite contains as little as one to two teaspoons of ink. As an small printing company that strives to be as eco-friendly as possible, we have found that soy-based inks are not as environmentally friendly as once thought. Substituting soy-based ink for rubber based ink does decrease the amount of petroleum usage. However, many of the world’s
forest are being cut to grow soy because of the demand. Most soy-based inks are only about 20 to 30% soy oil and they are no less toxic than petroleum-based inks. Our low voc [volitile organic compounds] rubber-based ink have the dense body texture to print much better on letterpress machines. They create beautiful tints and strong solids, creating at the end, a beautiful invitation.

Please note: Computer monitors display colours differently. For a correct colour swatch, please contact one of our exclusive retailers. If a retailer is not in your area, please contact our studio.
