About the Press

The Pocket Press prints etchings, linocuts, monoprints, collagraphs and more. More convenient than a bulky, expensive floor or tabletop press, your Pocket Press can be easily stored or set up at a moment’s notice. Unlike any other small printmaking press, your print size isn’t limited by the width of your rollers. The Pocket Press prints in overlapping rows, enabling you to press much wider than its 1.5 inch steel rollers. The concentrated force of these small rollers enables you to press even the deepest etchings by hand. Essentially a handheld etching press, the Pocket Press is perfect for all printmakers; from professionals who can’t always make it to the print lab to students who are just learning the craft.
Each little printmaking press is handmade by me. I’ve used this press for nearly a decade to press all of my prints. I have even created letterpress cards with it. It is the only printing press I use. I’ve taught middle school students, college students and even Skillshare’s co-founder how to press prints with my Pocket Press. -Diana Kohne, owner and operator
