Our etching printing presses were designed in 1981 by Dave Gunning BA (HONS) and have sold all over the world ever since.
In 1980 there were no presses on the market that printed to a remarkable standard as well being multi-printers, printing all kinds of plates from intaglio to relief, at an affordable price. After Dave Gunning made one for himself a fellow printmaker used it and immediately wanted one for himself…and so the Gunning Etching Printing press business was born!
40 years on and son in law and specialist printmaker Dave Mason-Gunning builds the machines with his dedicated team of engineers and printmakers.
Our Etching Printing press range gives outstanding results, offering reliability and flexibility. Trusted by academic organisations and by 1000’s of artists around the world of all skill levels.
If you ever need any help with anything technical we are full-time printmakers so just give us a call.
Our etching printing presses are made using fabricated steel, dense walled stainless steel cylinders and no maintenance bearings, available with either a star or round wheel. The Gunning Arts Etching Presses are easily maintained and include safety features such as bed safety stops, press lockdown as well as easy removal of a star or round wheel and press bed. Each etching printing press is supplied with runners and a printing blanket so you can get printing straight away and easily print many different thicknesses of the plate.
Dave Gunning’s daughters Jenny Gunning BA(HONS)GCF (Specialist Printmaker) and Sarah Morris (Giclée printer, framer and colour specialist) work at our beautiful printmaking Gallery and Studios and sell the etching printing presses all over the world.
