About the Press

The Pocket Press prints etchings, linocuts, monoprints, collagraphs and more. It is the most lightweight and economical tabletop press. 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 small rollers. The concentrated force of the rollers presses even the deepest etchings. 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 small printmaking press is handmade by me. I’ve used this press for nearly a decade to press all of my prints. I have printed linocut, woodcut, drypoint, acid etched, monotype and even letterpress plates 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
