Akua Pin Press
The Akua Pin Press is a portable press designed for light pressure printing processes such and monotype, drypoint and collagraph. It offers an economical alternative to standard printmaking presses. The Pin Press is 20″ long, which allows for printing from plates 19 3/4″ or smaller, and is precisely-machined to provide uniform contact between roller, plate and paper. Its all metal construction ensures long-lasting durability and its crescent-shaped handles allow for ergonomic printing while also acting as the press’ stand between uses.
