Inks for Fine Art Printmakers

Welcome to Caligo Inks ! We have been making fine art printing inks for more than thirty years and we are pleased to remain an independent, family-owned company. 




Caligo is one of the few independent ink manufacturers that have the facilities and experience to make printing inks from dry pigment colours. This means we have control over every aspect of ink formulation and production –  from the initial selection of raw materials through to the filling and sealing of the tin or tube of ink in your print studio. Find out more about the manufacture of printing inks at our Caligo Ink Factory.

Caligo Safe Wash Inks  Oil based and washable - Artist inks for non-toxic printmaking. For artists and printers interested in Non-Toxic printmaking or for anyone who wants to clean up without solvents, we offer a unique range of oil-based inks that can be washed away with just liquid soap and water. We call these inks Caligo ‘Safe Wash’ and they are available for Relief and Intaglio printing. Safe Wash inks offer all the qualities of an oil-based ink, but without the need for expensive and volatile solvents at clean up.
