quoteJust a quick thank you for my portable press!

It has been wonderfully easy to use for both my solar etching plates and linocut prints! I have used it in Caulfield, and taken her to our beach house in Tootgarook! She is perfect in both places! 

I saw it in your ad in Imprint. It was perfect timing as I had been going backwards and forwards about getting a press, a big one, a little one... and the ones I had seen previously were too heavy for me to consider as portable. When I checked your website, I loved the photo of the lady carrying the press out of her car!

Anyway, back to the main point... I am super happy to have Violet in my studios! It also means I can print whenever I like, without needing to worry about the madness going on in the world! Thank you so much!

quoteI am delighted with my RP12 which I purchased online, with Enjay Presses organising its delivery to NZ. Neil’s communication was great, and his thorough explanation made the process of sorting NZ Customs requirements straight forward and hassle-free. The press is easy to lift into the car to take anywhere you need to, making it ideal for workshops and art group use.

The RP12 is a genuinely portable press, so compact and light it easily fits into cars. Lifting is easy using the built-in lifting bar; or store it in a cupboard.

The press is robust, with direct drive and a comfortable crank handle. The composite material bedplate is effective, long lasting and safer than steel. It accommodates A3 paper. Relief printing is easily handled on paper to width 240mm (when using runners). And intaglio processes can be printed on paper to A4 width without effort.

There are no hidden finger trapping points and bed stops are fitted.
Rollers are 60mm diameter with sealed ball bearings.

We deliver the press by Pack & Send to any of the P&S depots. You can pick it up there or have it delivered by P&S to your door. Cost of shipping not included above.
