Printing Presses

Transfer designs and illustrations from a carved block, plate, or screen and onto a variety of surfaces with a printing press. Find presses for a variety of printing techniques, including block printing, etching, and screen printing.

Screen printing presses push inked designs through a screen. Artists press ink or paint through the screen using a squeegee. Find a printing press for T-shirts and other clothes and accessories.

Block printing presses are used with carved wood and linoleum blocks. Apply ink or paint to your block and place it on top of your paper or other surface inside the press. Then, press down or roll it through the press, and your design will transfer onto the surface.

Similarly, etching presses shift paint from an etched plate onto a surface. They use rollers and a hand crank or motor to pull the plate and surface through.
