Pocket Press + Registration Pressbed for Linocut / Reduction Printmaking
A Linocut Press for Reduction Printmaking
The Registration Pressbed setup is for linocut printmakers who want to print using dry paper. This kit makes it possible to print multiple passes on a single sheet of paper for reductive prints. It can also press intaglio and monoprints using dampened paper.
This setup include the Pocket Press and press bed with built in registration pegs. The pegs make it easy to line up your paper and print editions more quickly than with a baren. The pegs are spaced for paper punched using a standard Swingline 2 hole punch, but you can also manually punch your own holes.
The press is approximately 3″ x 3″ x 2.5″ Unlike any other roller press, your print size is not limited to the size of your rollers. The rollers concentrate your strength and enable you to to press in overlapping rows. The Registration Pressbed is easy to store and set up anywhere.
The platen (also known as the press bed) is 9″ x 12″ with a printing area of about 9″ x 9″.
The Registration Kit includes:
- a Pocket Press
- a Registration Platen
- 2 felt blankets
- instructions for use
The Registration Pressbed I have available is blue. Watch the video below to see it in action.
