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?

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!”
