The Small Printmaking Press.

Created by a printmaker with a small apartment.

Hi, welcome to my printmaking press shop. With my handheld printmaking press you can print etchings, linocuts, monoprints, collagraphs and more without a bulky, expensive floor or tabletop press. Essentially a handheld etching press, my Pocket Press is perfect for all print makers; from professionals who can’t always make it to the print lab to students who are just learning the craft. Unlike any other small printmaking press, your print’s size isn’t limited by the width of your rollers. This unique setup up makes it possible to press in rows. The concentrated force of the rollers press even the deepest etchings by hand. The Printmaking Press in a Box comes with a rubber platen for holding your plate in place and includes felt blankets, just like the big presses at the print lab.

I make each little printmaking press by hand. I’ve used this press for nearly a decade to press all of my prints, which are also for sale in the shop. I also teach printmaking workshops. I’ve taught middle school students, college students and even Skillshare’s co-founder how to press prints with my pocket press.
I am currently writing two books for printmakers. One book is a book of projects you can do with your Pocket Press. The other is a guide to starting your own printmaking biz. Please sign up for the newsletter so you don’t miss their release. The newsletter is also the best way to be alerted when I make a new batch of presses.
