Just like a real offset printing press, we knew you'd want complete control over your ink! Ranging from its viscosity to the texture if your ink, Permanent Press puts you in control of these settings with amazing acuity!
Ink Viscosity refers to how wet the ink is. Wetter ink will spread and drier ink will result in less coverage. You can see below how the viscosity has been applied globally to all Ink Plates resulting in a loss of detail and an increase in overprinted Ink. On the right, we've only modified the viscosity of a single Ink Plate (Blue) while leaving the remaining Ink Plates intact.
You can apply an authentic surface texture to any Ink Plate that you're working with. It's easy to select an Ink Texture from the drop down menu in the GUI or simply select No Texture if you wish to work with solid colors only.
In the example above, you'll note Ink Textures can be applied globally to all Ink Plates simultaneously or applied to each individual Ink Plate making it easy to combine Ink Texture effects or to alternate Ink Plates without Ink Textures.
Another great feature of Permanent Press is that you can create and apply your own tileable textures and since we continue to release new textures all the time, you can download them as they're added right from the GUI!
Lastly, we've made it easy to change the scale of the ink texture as well as the intensity of the ink texture effect depending on your preference.
