Here are all our printing runners, if you don’t see the sizes you need please call for a quote as we make bespoke.

Our printing runners come in many different thicknesses, they are hard wearing plastic so they will last you thousands of prints. They are used to line your press bed, if you have one of our presses they come with a system that secures them to your press, and your top roller is dropped down onto your runners you can just kiss your plate with your top roller. On our presses you don’t need to use a blanket for printing but you can do if you would prefer. If you are purchasing for use with a printing press that is not ours then just check that you can fit the runners in between your rollers as these are non refundable. If you need any help please call.

There is a large gap in between our rollers and you have great control of the pressure so you will be able to print any thickness of plate. When Dave Gunning designed the presses over 40 years ago he wanted the presses to be multifunctional so that they print any thickness of plate. Using our runners system, it makes it very easy to set up and print any thickness of plate. Designed and made by printmakers.

Here are the runners that are available – one set comes free with your press but if you need to purchase more here is the list of thicknesses that we make and sell.

2mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 15mm, 20mm , 25mm , 30mm
