2"x2" Hand Printing Roller

Our printmaking roller range…

Here at Ironbridge fine art’s we chose to stock our exceptional quality rollers created by us. We have a wide range of sizes and rubbers available in both our spindle and hand rollers.

With so many rollers being available you might be asking yourself which ink is best for me and my printing methods? In this blog we will explain all you need to know about the types of rollers we offer giving you the knowledge to know which roller will suit you and your printmaking processes.

Hand rollers

Our hand rollers are made from nitrile rubber so they are easy to clean and the results you get are fantastic. As printmakers ourselves we love designing, developing and making the tools that that we use every day. These printmaking rollers are a must have for any professional printmaking studio or workshop.

The built in stand on our hand rollers makes inking rollers easy, simply ink up, and then rest your roller on its stand while you print. When you wish to clean your roller simply sit it on its built in stand and spray your vegetable oil or white spirit onto the roller and wipe clean with a rag. Alternatively we also use Zest it’s printmakers cleaner for a non toxic method, it makes clean up much easier. 

3All our hand rollers have a lovely chunky 6” handle, and they all have the diameter of 2” or 3″. We offer singles as well as packs. They all come in Hard (60 shore) Medium (38 shore) and Soft (25 Shore)  rubbers.

Spindle rollers

Our Spindle rollers are made from Nitrile rubber, they are excellent quality, easy clean and they are a dream for printmakers to use. We make our soft, medium and hard Spindle rollers in 3 different sizes.

You can also purchase a Roller Holder for each spindle roller that can sit on the work surface, or be put on the wall these are fantastic and allow for somewhere to rest your roller with ink on whilst printing.

                           Spindle roller and Holder Ironbridge Roller Holder

The smallest roller  is 4” Diameter x 10” length = a circumference of 12.56” Making the maximum plate size (for double inking) 10” x 12.56”

The medium roller  is 5” Diameter x 14” length = a circumference of 15.70” Making the maximum plate size (for double inking) 14” x 15.70”

The largest roller is 6” Diameter x 21” length = a circumference of 18.84” Making the maximum plate size (for double inking) 20” x 18.84”

Sam Marshall

Gunning press printmakers of the week- Sam Marshall

This weeks Gunning press printmaker is the fantastic Sam Marshall, the owner of a Gunning press Number 2 works from her home studio accompanied by her studio assistant – ‘Miss Marple’, her mini dachshund. We sat down with Sam to understand why she loves printmaking on her Gunning press.

Sam Marshall

Sam MarshallWhy did you choose to purchase a Gunning Etching press?

“I had done so much research about presses and was feeling a little overwhelmed. When I phoned Ironbridge I spoke to Jenny and she was so warm, friendly and carefully explained all my options from stands, to press size to geared. From that moment I had no doubt that an Ironbridge press was the one for me!”

What’s your favourite feature on the Gunning Etching press?

“I love the fact that I can print both intaglio and relief perfectly on the press. The press is quick and easy to go from printing intaglio to relief.”

How did you or your organization get into printmaking?

Sam Marshall“I started printmaking in my early 30’s at the Royal Drawing School in London – and haven’t stopped since. I originate from the flat fens of Lincolnshire where my Dad was a cabbage farmer. Having lived in London for over 20 years I recently relocated to rural Northamptonshire with Miss Marple my mini dachshund where I now concentrate on my printmaking and run print workshops.When I’m not in my studio,  I teach printmaking at the Royal Drawing School and on their foundation programme.”

How would you describe your work?

“I specialise in linocuts and etchings. My work tells the stories about my life and travels with my mini dachshund Miss Marple – it features landscapes and quirky animals both real and imaginary. My inspiration comes from many sources – medieval margins and bestiaries, animal prints from the 1800’s, folk art, old children’s books, and real life animals that have something of the unusual about them.”

Sam MarshallDoes your Gunning etching press have a nickname?

“Yes, she is called Pandora. I asked my Instagram followers to suggest a name, and this is the one I chose.”

What would you say to someone thinking about purchasing a Gunning etching press?

“I always say give them a call and have a chat. Talk through your requirements and see what they suggest. I also always tell them that they can visit Ironbridge and try out the presses too – make a weekend of it as it’s such a magical area!”

Any other comments?

“Finding Ironbridge printmakers has been one of the highlights of my life in the past 2 years. Jenny and Dave have become friends and I can’t recommend their presses highly enough. They are both so passionate about printmaking and their joy shines through everything they do. It’s a very special company, very unique – and if you are a printmaker and want a press then I can’t recommend them highly enough!”

Gunning press printmakers of the week- Jenny McCabe

This weeks Gunning press printmaker is the fantastic Jenny McCabe who is the winner of our print fest award. Jenny, the owner of a Gunning press Number 2, Based in Lancaster in the Northwest of England she works from her own studio and she also teaches regularly in print rooms around the country.  We sat down with Jenny to understand why she loves printmaking on her Gunning press.

Why did you choose to purchase a Gunning Etching press?

“I have been looking for a press for years that would fit into a domestic space – ie not to heavy. I visited Ironbridge on the off chance whilst visiting my mother who lives in the nearing town of Bridgnorth. I came across Jenny at Ironbridge fine arts and the most gorgeous Gunning Etching press, it was a perfect solution to my needs – a strong large press that can be taken apart easily and is not to heavy.”

What’s your favourite feature on the Gunning Etching press?

“One thing that drew me to the press straight away and will always be my favourite feature on my press is the massive large round wheel it’s so stylish and practical I love it. I would definitely recommend it as an upgrade option”

How did you get into printmaking?

“I studied Printmaking at university in the late 90s and have been printmaking in some way or other since then, I think it’s fair to say I fell in love with printmaking. As an artist and printmaker with over 20 years experience of making and exhibiting work. I am based in Lancaster in the Northwest of England working from my own studio and also teaching regularly in print rooms around the country.”

How would you describe your work?

“I would describe my work as messy, scratchy lines and lively compositions of birds jumping out of the plates, aiming to capture the frantic movement and energy. Mainly with intaglio printmaking methods preferring Collagraph and metal plate etchings. My work always starts with drawing and the technical challenge of turning a simple piece of metal or card into a piece of art. “

Does your Gunning etching press have a nickname?

“She is called Gillian – after Gillian Anderson”

What would you say to someone thinking about purchasing a Gunning etching press?

“The press is a great work horse and perfect for relief of intaglio prints – all the sizes and extras mean you can build a perfect solution for your individual studio – ie with a stand and lockable  wheels or without – affordable prices too compared to other makes.”

“I love my press and it has given me the total freedom to work in my own studio, I only wish I had a larger space and then I could get a Number 4 XL.”

 

We recently awards Jenny McCabe our Ironbridge award at this years print fest.

Jenny McCabe award

Can I print onto fabric?

The answer is yes you can print onto fabric!! We are throughly enjoying printing onto fabric at the moment. It’s so joyful what we can produce turning our prints in items such as cushions and lampshades. Read on to find out how you can print on fabric too ….

Which Inks should I use?cranfield seleant gun

Cranfield’s caligo safe wash inks are brilliant for printing onto fabric as they already have some driers added. If you need to speed up drying times don’t be afraid to add in a drop of cobalt drier or magnesium powder into the ink.

Can I wash the fabric and is it permanent?

Caligo safe wash inks are designed so that while wet they will wash out with soap and water and without the need for use of toxic solvents. Once dry the inks hold a good level of resistance to handling and washing. We can’t guarantee that all fabric prints will be fully water resistant and 100% fast on all textiles and situations, however we have seen some lovely print and wash results.

How should I prepare my fabric?

 Most printmakers will wash their fabrics before printing this will eliminate and shrinkage and wash away any unwanted chemicals from the manufacturing process. The higher the weave and texture in the fabric the more pressure you will need to reach that solid ink coverage.

Drying and washing

 Drying your fabric can take several days, we recommend drying your fabric in a warm dry space with moving air. One you believe to be dry we recommend doing a rub test to see if any of the ink is removed when rubbed. If no ink is removed your ink is dry and therefore ready to set.

To set your ink we recommend placing a sheet of baking paper over your print and then using a hot iron with no steam to seal with heat. However, do not glide the iron like you usually would hold the iron in areas of the prints for five second intervals this will allow the heat to fix the ink to the fabric.

 To wash your print, we recommend washing on a two hour was at 40 degrees or alternatively washing by hand. However please do bear in mind every fabric is different and wash times and temperatures may vary. We always recommend doing a patch test where possible.

We cant wait to see what you all produce! 🙂

Gunning press printmakers of the week- Shelley Wingrove

This weeks Gunning press printmaker is the fantastic Shelley Wingrove who runs Little Black Mare. Shelley, the owner of a Gunning press Number 2 works from her home studio where inspiration comes from Maisie’s wildflower meadow, or long walks in the woods and hills that surround her home. We sat down with Shelley to understand why she loves printmaking on her Gunning press.shelly Wingrove Gunning Etching Press

Why did you choose to purchase a Gunning Etching press?

I chose a Gunning Etching Press because I had the chance to demo one while at Ironbridge Printmakers printing  some work for my City & Guild exam, It was SO unbelievably wonderful, love at first sight!!, and I knew right there I was going to have to have one! 
 

What’s your favourite feature on the Gunning Etching press?

I love everything about my Gunning press, I love how it has been designed with end stops, so the bed is safe and never falls off the wheels. I love the different thicknesses of the relief runners, I love the graph bed and I love the ease it can work between different types of printmaking. Most of all I LOVE the way it looks, so beautiful!
 

How did you get into printmaking?

I got into printmaking after a one day beginners lino-cut course, I was hooked! and at the end of the day had signed up for a City & Guilds course. I have been printmaking ever since.
 
How would you describe your work?Shelley Wingrove Lino Cut
 
My work is very varied, I guess I love detail and am always inspired by the beautiful Shropshire countryside. In my etchings, dry point, lino-cut and collographs,  nature and detail are a general theme running through all my work. I love to watch the light at play on the trees and the fields. I’ll capture scenes or just little details in my sketchbook, or perhaps collect a leaf or some other treasure. Then I’ll spend some time in my studio, bringing ideas together and deciding which print process will best capture the image’s wholeness and beauty.
 

Does your Gunning etching press have a nickname?

My Gunning etching press is called Brenda, Private Eye magazine has this nick name for our lovely queen, and I reckon my press is pretty regal, so it had to be Brenda.
 

What would you say to someone thinking about purchasing a Gunning etching press?shelley Wingrove Gunning etching press

If someone is thinking of buying a Gunning Etching press I would absolutely and wholeheartedly say BUY IT!!! It is the Rolls Royce of printing presses, a totally awesome press. It is British made, from a family company of printmakers, who really know their stuff! Your press will come with a lifetime of goodwill and knowledge from the lovely Gunning family, priceless.
