Re: Monotype Press



The ideal press for monotypes is the etching press! You can use a litho
press. I've done it both ways enough times to prefer the etching press.
You'll have better luck finding an etching press, and they are relatively
inexpesive ($1000 +/-) for the size you'll need. There are many makes and
models... Dick Blick (tel? 800 directory should have them listed) catalog
offers some cheap table top models.

>From plexiglass plates, with etching inks, you don't need a press... elbow
grease.
