Tip #4

Question: How many sides does an ink knife have?

If you answered "2," sorry, you're wrong! The answer is 5!*

This week's tip is dedicated to those printers who've dipped a clean-looking knife into a can of ink only to find that they've created a streak of a new color in the ink can.

Please remember that the studio is a shared space and you want to leave everything in as good (or better) shape after renting. When cleaning the ink knives, please remember to clean the side and top edges as well as the two flat sides. This will help keep the insides of our ink cans clean and single-colored! Next goal: keeping the outsides of our ink cans clean!

*This little question/answer bit was recently shared with me by someone in the studio. My memory is foggy, but I think it can be attributed to one of our intern's former professors.
