Flexcut Linoleum & Printmaking Set
Linoleum & Printmaking Set Great for Professionals ...and Students

Professionals will like the quality and students will appreciate the value of Flexcut’s tool set for linoleum and printmaking.

The set features four blade profiles from Flexcut’s extensive line of palm tools. An 1/8-inch and a 5/16-inch sweep, a 1/4-inch V-tool, plus a 1mm micro V-tool. Palm tools offer great control while making cuts, so they are perfect for relief carving and close detail work.

Each blade is razor sharp and easily cuts away linoleum and wood surfaces to reveal your images and patterns. The blades are precision made from high-carbon steel. Cutting edges stay sharp and are easily maintained. The blades are interchangeable in the high-impact thermoplastic handle, which also comes in the set. The handle allows an exceptional grip and is ergonomically designed to minimize hand fatigue.

The set includes a manual, sharpening strop, polishing compound and an 11-pocket tool roll for a great value. Additional blade profiles are available to extend your capabilities.

Kuretake Inktober
Kuretake will be a sponsor of Inktober 2022!

Inktober is an art challenge where participants of all levels create artwork using ink, primarily black and white ink. The juxtaposition of using a deep black or bright white ink on paper of the opposing color evokes a feeling of simplicity and focus in a person.

In 2009, illustrator Jake Parker started this challenge for himself as a means to improve his own skills, but now, Inktober has grown into a massive event with over 250,000 participants around the world.

Kuretake was founded in 1902 and has been manufacturing brush pens for around 50 years. Throughout Inktober, we would like to convey the joy of drawing with a brush pen to people all over the world.

Introducing ColorPad: Jacquard’s first line of pigment and dye-based ink pads

When ClearSnap Inc. closed in 2019, discontinuing their beloved ColorBox products, Jacquard absorbed much of their operation.

With ColorPad, Jacquard proudly introduces their first line of branded pads, extending ColorBox’s legacy of consistency, quality, and longevity.

ColorPad Pigment Ink Pads:
Jacquard’s slow-drying, artist-grade pigment inks are formulated to sit on top of the surface, giving plenty of time for blending and embossing.

ColorPad Waterproof Dye Ink Pads:
This quick-drying premium dye ink gives a sharp impression every time. Waterproof and permanent, it won’t bleed or smudge when watercolors, acrylics, or water-based inks are applied over top of the print. Perfect for mixed media, embellishing, and fast marking.
