The Ink Shop Collection features soy candles made with fragrance oils mixed by hand in small quantities, which allows for rich, consistent scents across every batch. Each candle is hand-poured into tins that will be easily recognisable to almost any printmaker. Every tin is then wrapped with a letterpressed label and topped with a keepsake print, both of which were printed on a restored Kelsey Excelsior 5x8 letterpress. The candle's scent is sealed-in using tried and true printmaker methods, creating an aromatic experience for you to enjoy.
Each four ounce candle will provide hours of use thanks to our slow-burning wood wicks, which crackle to create a unique experience every time they are lit.
We sincerly hope that you love your candle as much as we loved making it.
The citrus family, known for its prominence in both the culinary and medical fields, also finds a home in the printshop. Everything from cleaning products to transfer mediums carry the scent.
Citrus + Mandarin is a clean, well-balanced combination of orange and grapefruit, with just a hint of lemon.
For many, wood type is one of the most well known aspects of printmaking. Type and ornaments adorn people's homes as knick-knacks long after their life in the printshop is over.
Pine + Sandalwood's top note is the unmistakable scent of fresh pine infused with layers of sandalwood, balsam, cedar wood and patchouli.
Long hours and late nights in the studio can cause some people to turn to vices. For many printmakers, a cup of coffee and a quick smoke is the perfect escape from the daily grind.
In Coffee + Tobacco, the sweet scents of tobacco, amber, and vanilla pair well with the richness of dark coffee.
