what you need to know:

  • Printmakers working in linoleum, woodcut, wood engraving, etching, monoprint, monotype, collagraph, drypoint, and various other techniques will all find our press very accommodating.
  • Bring in your prepared plate, inks, brayer and paper. Most plates can be worked on or refined at the workbench, but metal etchings requiring acid immersion should be ready to print, as we do not provide for the acid wash. We can not accommodate lithography.
  • We have 18 x 36 and 36 x 60 felt pusher, catcher, and cushion blankets available for studio use. We also have a large (44 x 55) stainless steel sink for clean up, large paper trays for soaking paper and a large drying rack available.

Any solvents used must be odorless.
