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.

The A4 press has all the same characteristics and features of our larger presses, including laser cut sides, a 75mm top roller, Japanese bearings, safety strap and hand wheel. The 12mm plate steel bed measures 25x50cm.

This press is designed to be used on a bench or table. Alternatively, we also sell a handmade work station stand that can be used to store ink, tools and paper, with an extra space to stack and dry your etchings.
