    Default Poster/paper ink supplier?

    Looking for poster/paper ink supplier out in western Canada? Or even US supplier who would ship to canada. Looking for Speedball Acrylic inks or any other brand of waterbased poster inks. Thanks!

    Hi Andy,

    I'm in Edmonton ALberta I went to the Micheal's and they didn't carry the Speedball Acrylic Poster Inks. I'll check with some other art supply stores

    If they have other Speedball products (most art stores at LEAST carry the fabric inks), talk to someone and see if you can special order a handful of acrylic inks in.

    I've done that through Wallack's in Ottawa (they only carry the fabric line). Had to wait for their next Speedball shipment, so it took a few weeks, but it meant I could choose exactly what I wanted. Only thing was, at least in my case, for the smallest size of ink, they needed an order of multiples of 6 (any colours), because of how they ship in a box. They might tell you the same. But those small jars are pretty cheap anyway, doesn't hurt to have different colours on hand.

    You can just order speedball from Amazon if you have to wait that long. Be sure to used the gigposter Amazon button on the front page to give GP a little kickback.

    Island blueprint and Opus both carry Speedball, they are in BC but ship anywhere.

    Willox has a warehouse in Calgary, i think they were selling speedball.
