Seeking Old School Printing Supplies & Resources
« on: May 29, 2020, 01:23:56 PM »
Greetings all,
       I'm currently in creative collaboration with another artist who's seriously interested in tracking down and obtaining old comic printing supplies, or any and all old-school printing/publishing supplies or resources. This includes Ben Day, Craftint, print stripping materials, etc. He's already developed a method to duplicate the exact look of old color comics and is seeking to refine this process. He and I are working on a creative project to produce new creative content based upon the Golden-Age style. If anyone has any sources or leads to help him secure any of these vintage materials, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Sounds like a fun project.

Stumbled on this fantastic site a few days ago.
This person has boiled down the entire printing process of Ben Day printing, and goes back to the late 1800's.
It is fascinating to read!
It should help you on your project.
