Collecting new printing press

To Ironbridge Fine Arts today to collect new press (two, actually)!

The main one is a large studio press with a 192cm x 90cm bed – large enough to print blocks and plates up to about 1200mm  x 840mm (46ins x 33ins).

The second one is a much smaller desktop (portable) press that has a bed size about 76 x 30 (30ins x 12ins) and can print larger than A4 (300 x 210cm).

It will take a while to adjust things in my new studio and get used to the handling qualities and capabilities of these lovely presses.  I’m excited by getting printing as soon as I can, so more in due course.
