As you can appreciate we can only do our very best to represent the colours of inks on the website. Please accept that different computer screens display colours slightly differently, so some small variations are impossible to avoid. Also, ink will always print a slightly different shade to what it looks like in the tub too. As regards to weight, if not stored correctly the water in the waterbased ink may evaporate and cause the ink to weight slightly less. Sizes are rounded to the nearest half inch.
