EssDee Printing Supplies
EssDee will have everything that you could want in terms of printing supplies, whether you are getting some for yourself or for the kids. EssDee are always on a mission to inspire, and this is why they make their high quality products so accessible. From affordable starter kits to unique and patented specialist tools, their range has a little something to explore on every step of your journey in printmaking. For children, we would particularly recommend the print foam starter kits, as these don't even need a sharp tool when you are making an impression, meaning that they offer a safe and easy way for kids to get into the craft. There are also comprehensive kits for those who are more experienced, which have a full range of cutting tools as well as tools for transferring your ink, stamps, and much more.
EssDee Cutting tools
There are lots of cleverly made cutting tools available from EssDee that make it easy for you to explore the full potential of printmaking as an artform and a craft. From cutting blades and cutter handles to stamp carving kits, there are lots of highly intuitively designed tools here for you to explore what you can do with your next creative endeavour. Whether it be artwork, personalised letters, postcards, gift tags, wrapping paper, greeting cards or any other printmaking project. These are built to work efficiently and effectively, delivering reliable results each time you use them.
Lino, Inks, Rollers and More
There is a ot more on offer from the EssDee printing supplies range. You will of course be able to pick up some of the lino sheets themselves. As mentioned above, EssDee have a great selection of lino that is made for kids so that they don't have to use any sharp implements when making their impressions in the material. For beginners we would also highly recommend their softcut material which is much easier to cut than traditional lino. However, there are also more conventional options. You can take your pick in thickness when it comes to the traditional grey linoleum blocks. There are then all the other essentials that you might need for your printmaking projects. This includes a printmaking lino block wooden bench hook which is the ideal accessory for your to be able to work away safely. You will also be able to pick up your easy clean ink trays, as well as the printing inks themselves and the rollers.
Ecologically Friendly Brand
This award winning British brand has for a long time been synonymous with quality. However, it has also in the last few years begun to make waves for the forward thinking approach it has been adopting and implementing with regard to their sustainability. Not only do they now produce over 70% over all their energy needed through solar panels, but they also have replaced their plastic packaging with recyclable and bio-degradable alternatives. Furthermore, they source their materials locally, reducing their carbon footprint even more. This has not gone unnoticed, as EssDee were recognised by Craft Business by being shortlisted in the 2021 Best Sustainable Craft Company Award.
