A4 Direct Drive Press by Fitzroy Etching Presses

The A4 etching press is a perfect choice for artists who print on a small scale, for those working in small spaces, and for people who need a portable option for workshops and residencies. All of our presses are built to order in Melbourne with a turnaround time of 6-8 weeks.
