The Ink Dial
I've pledged to support this project. I mix most of my ink colors by hand. It's not the easy way, but it's the most rewarding method.
I have the challenge of matching specific colors from one run to the next. But being a little type a, I want to ensure that colors match as closely as possible from one business card run to the next.
I could do it the easy (read: boring) way and order a pound of ink for each color I use, but that's not what I am going to do. It would be simple to scoop a little ink out of the can and slap it on the press. That method is for black ink. Mixing an awesome custom color and seeing it print the exact shade it is meant to is incredibly satisfying. It's not fun if its not a bit of a challenge, right?
I am crossing my fingers that this project gets the funding it needs. I love the innovative approach to this tool and hope that others see the value in it, even if you aren't covered in ink like I seem to be.
