Printmaking Press Plans is an instant download. Using materials from the hardware store build your own handheld printmaking press. For personal use only.
My hand drawn instructions show you how to build your own Pocket Press!
The Pocket Press prints intaglio, relief and monotype prints by concentrating your own strength. Instead of one huge, heavy (and expensive!) roller, the Pocket Press has two small rollers and prints in rows.
I have found all of the parts to build my Pocket Press at my local hardware stores. Every hardware store carries a different selection, so you may have to ask them to special order a part for you or you may need to order online.
Pocket Press Builders outside the US: Let me know what the part is called in your country, or any part substitutions you used, and I’ll add the info to the press plans to help future builders!
These plans are for personal use and its results may not be sold. Pocket Press design and plans belong to Diana Kohne.
