Here is a selection of our etching printing presses for sale.  

All of our presses are multi – printers able to print all intaglio and relief.

Our presses are hand made in Shropshire by our team managed by specialist printmaker Dave Gunning BA(HONS) who designed the presses over 40 years ago. These excellent printing presses have been selling all over the world ever since..

They can be delivered to anywhere in the UK, Europe, America, Africa, Asia and Australia. 

Our Etching Printing press range give outstanding results, offering reliability and flexibility. Trusted by academic organisations and by 1000’s of artists around the world of all skill levels.

It is simple and quick to set the pressure for any thickness and detail of plate, dry-points, etchings, solar plates, collagraph, thick woodblocks, lino, reductions, Japanese ply, carborundum, photopolymer, mezzotint and anything in between. We can deliver and set up for you, and also show you how to make plates and print from them. You can come to our printmaking gallery and workshop to print some of your own plates (or ours if you don’t have any) allowing you to get the feel of our range of presses.

If you ever need any help with anything technical we are full time printmakers so just give us a call.  

Our direct drive presses are made using fabricated steel, dense walled cylinders and pre-oiled bearings, available with either a star or round wheel. The Gunning Arts Presses are easily maintained and include safety features such as bed safety stops, press lock down as well as easy removal of star or round wheel and press bed. Each press is supplied with runners and a printing blanket so you can get printing straight away and easily print using different thicknesses of plate. You also have the option to upgrade to the traditional three printing blankets.
