Monotype printmakers may not need the use of a heavy etching press, especially with Akua inks. The PinPress was designed specifically for monotype printmaking. The roller is precisely machined to an incredibly even and smooth surface for uniform contact between the roller, paper and plate. Durable all metal construction made of aluminum and brass bushings insures long lasting, trouble-free printing. The crescent shaped handles swivel and act as a stand when not in use. This prevents the PinPress from rolling off the table by allowing it to be put down without the surface of the roller touching the table.
