Tinta Simpática Estimulante

Eina Idea's printed objects are not distributed without a number of branding seals on their skin. More than marks of authenticity, these inscriptions are traces of a performative relation, between maker/receiver or writer/reader—even in those instances where there is no text. Eina Idea's sigils are identyfing symbols of its stationary production insofar as the latter is tangible, palatable, and emblematic. The inks they are hand-stamped with are a singular color blend of mezcal, CBC, and food coloring, called TINTA SIMPÁTICA ESTIMULANTE. They come in three textured hues: Sugar Black*, Tibetan Red*, and Magüey Blue*. This document is the formal description of the materials and fabrication procedure for these signature inks.
