Printing Supplies in SoCal

Can anyone please tell me a printing supply here in Southern California? As nearest as possible to Norwalk (zip 90650) please. I looked in the Yellow Book section here and I didnt see anything. I need to buy California Wash and other stuff. Thank you.

Try Kelly Paper, they are all over California. There are other sources as well. Do a search on Google, not here. Most suppliers don’t even know about Briar.

California Wash is banned in your neighborhood.


Use Naptha from your hardware store, or Coleman Fuel from a camping store. It’s the same stuff without the carcinogens they add to keep it from evaporating too fast.


Thanks Gerald & Paul

you already have Kelly paper.

Miss typed above, sorry.

IC Compound company has a great wash.
MRC (metering roller cleaner
Tell them you want the stuff they sell to
Creative Letterpress Inc (that’s us)

They also have a great hand cleaner!!!

Stay away from any thing called “Ca Wash”

In a pinch we use Laquer Thinner

I’ve used coleman fuel for a long time and it works great, sometimes i use mineral spirits. (hows that Paul) Dick G.
